Best Ever Ramen Recipe
I have the best recipe for ramen, in the history of ever. (I may be a little biased 🤫) I’m a big fan of ramen. This has been one of my staple foods since I was in high school, and I’ve been perfecting it over the years. Ramen is cheap and quick, and it only takes a little effort to make it a legitimate meal.
First things first, get yoself one of these bad boys: microwave pot. When I get home on a work night, I want to make food as quick and easily as possible. Microwavable pots have been a HUGE lifesaver.
You can make this in a traditional pot on the stove or pre-boil water in the microwave to pour in depending on your preference. This recipe makes 1-2 servings (realistically for most adults it’s 1 serving).
1 pack of ramen (I like maruchan)
1 1/2 cups water - you can add more if you like it soupy
1 tbsp dried minced onions
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sriracha
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 large egg
1 cup peas (I usually steam frozen peas) - you can substitute the peas for any other vegetables you like
Boil your one large egg in a pot of water. Anywhere from soft to hard boiled will suit this recipe perfectly. When it’s done cooking, take it out of the water and set aside.
While the egg is cooking, put your frozen peas in a microwave safe bowl and add a splash water. I typically cook these in the microwave between 4-5 minutes.
Use your handy microwave pot and add in the water, minced onions, ground ginger, sesame oil, sriracha, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Heat the water until it’s at a boil; my microwave typically takes 5 minutes, but it’s a weak one.
Once the water mixture is hot, add in the ramen noodles. Put back in the microwave (or on the stovetop if you’re cooking it that way), and heat the noodles with the water for another minute.
Take the ramen mixture and mix in the peas and any seasoning from the ramen pack. Cover and set aside while you peel your egg.
Peel and cut your egg into slices. Lay that on top of the ramen and serve!
