Lorecipes: Transmogrify your instant ramen - The Loresworn Order


Lorecipes: Transmogrify your instant ramen

Ramen is here to stay as a nerd-home staple. Its instant, sodium-laced noodle broth is tasty but not always completely satisfying. If you’re looking for a little more heft to your ramen, here’s a quick guide for making a hearty, healthy meal out of your 10 cent packet.
Step 1: Pick your ramen flavor

My personal favorite is the chili flavor. It gives a nice kick. You can also make new ones by combining them, though: mix chili and chicken for a spicy Mexican flair, or oriental and pork for a more traditional taste. There are hundreds of possible combinations.

Step 2: Boil the water

Put water in a sauce pan. Heat until it boils. Don’t touch the water (I speak from experience).

Step 3: Add the noodles

Cook to your desired done-ness.

Step 4: Add your extras

Frozen Veggies are perfect here. They cook perfectly in the boiling water and make the broth cool enough to eat. You can also toss in extra meat from your leftovers to add some protein. Be sure to avoid canned veggies. They just get mushy.

Step 5: Enjoy!

To get you started here are a couple of our favorite combinations.

Chili ramen

Fresh or frozen spinach

Shelled edamame

Splash of lime juice

Easy Chicken Noodle Ramen

Roasted chicken ramen

Shredded chicken

Frozen Tuscan veggie mix

Splash of lemon juice

Optional: Soy sauce

    I like it. I’ve never been been a huge ramen eater but I really like the idea to bulk it up with other stuff.
    Also, I love that there is a website where I can find Kaiserreich videos and food tips. I look forward to more Lorecipies! I need to buy some food so I just might pick up some ramen and frozen veggies. I’ll post back if I try any of the specific suggestions here.
