Best Ways to Spice up ramen



If you're really sick of ramen soup, you can forgo the soup altogether and use it to make a stir-fry. Simply cook your noodles, then drain the water, then stir-fry with any vegetables you like. Peppers, mushrooms, carrots, and greens are great choices. You can also add any kind of cooked meat you want. Stir fry over high heat and add the seasoning packet, and whatever other seasoning you want. Then you have a veggie-packed stir fry and a break in the monotony of eating instant noodles every day.

Eggs are a classic and delicious way to amp up your instant ramen. If cooking on the stovetop, simply crack an egg into the pot when your noodles are nearly done cooking. You can leave it there for a sort of poached effect, and wait for it to cook, or you can swirl it around and break up the yolk for more of an "egg drop soup" feel.

The possibilities don't end there, though. If you like, you can do a fried egg. Or a boiled egg. Or a boiled egg that's been marinating in sugar and soy sauce - this adds colour and gives you the kind of egg that you would see in fancy ramen shops.

Sauces are probably one of the best additions you can make to ramen. If you're a ramen lover like me, you probably have a bunch of sauces lying around your kitchen. But, one particular favorite of mine would be the sriracha, which is a pretty nice kick of heat. It's a sauce made out of red chili and garlic. It adds a decent amount of heat to a regular bowl of ramen.

Frozen vegetables

A bag of frozen vegetables is a great thing to have in your freezer, it's a great way to add a tiny bit of nutrition to whatever you're eating, even if it's instant ramen. Frozen peas, carrots, and corn are a great option as they cook rather quickly. If cooking on the stovetop, simply add as much as desired when your noodles are almost done cooking. The stovetop also has the advantage of being able to add whatever vegetable you want: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower. Simply keep boiling until you are satisfied with their doneness. If using peas, they should take mere seconds to cook.

If using only boiled water, add only a small amount and as soon as you pour into the cup to ensure both the vegetables and your noodles still have enough heat to get cooked all the way through. Only frozen peas and corn should be used for this, as something like broccoli will not have nearly enough heat to cook.
