BLOG: Fun with Ramen

Ramen. The college student’s staple food.

So terrible but delicious. If you aren’t craving Taco Bell, you are probably craving ramen.

But don’t be fooled by it’s cheapness, people. You can actually make some delicious spruced up Ramen meals besides the classic warmed-up-in-the-microwave version.

Chinese Makeshift Meal:


·         Two Packages of ramen (Chicken or shrimp)

·         Three cups of water

·         Chicken Breast cut into cubes

·         One cup shredded cabbage (or bagged coleslaw package)

·         Three Tbsp. soy sauce


1.       Cook Ramen noodles on stove top with three cups of water until cooked

2.       Strain Noodles

3.       Add cabbage, soy sauce and chicken, then mix on stove until warmed

Couldn’t be simpler, but oh so good!

Egg Drop Ramen


·         One your favorite packet of ramen

·         One egg, whisked

·         One spring onion, chopped

·         A handful of spinach

·         Thai chili sauce (optional)


1.       Cook Ramen as directed on the packet.

2.       A minute before it is done, drop your whisked egg into the Ramen. Let it sit for a few seconds and then with chopsticks or a fork, stir the Ramen in a figure-eight motion, allowing the egg to separate.

3.       Then add the spring onions, spinach, and seasoning and allow that to cook for 30 seconds.

4.       Once served, I use a Thai chili sauce over my noodles to give it a nice kick. It adds a wonderful flavor. Enjoy!

So the next time you get an overwhelming Ramen craving, try one of these recipes to spice things up a bit!

I mean its Ramen, there is no way it could be bad. And if you are thinking to yourself, but I don’t even like Ramen? You are lying. So buy a pack and enjoy.
