Ramen Noodles: A Cheap and Quick Meal


I love ramen noodles. They are cheap, tasty, and oh-so-comforting, although not too healthy.  I usually buy an entire box of Mama Tom Yum ramen noodles and reach for a bag or two (most of the time two bags) on those cold winter nights. I haven’t picked up another box of Mama ramen noodles because I’m trying to eat healthier and also because my local Asian food mart has been out of this specific brand.

While trying to be true to my New Year goals of holistic eating without missing out on my comfort food, I have been in search of a healthier ramen recipe. Here’s one that I found on Baby Center that is not too bad. If you have any amazing ramen recipe, feel free to share.

1 32 Oz Box of Chicken Stock
1 Cup Water
2 Tbsp White or Yellow Miso
2 (3-ounce) Packages Packaged Ramen Noodles (pasta, udon or rice noodles work great too)
4 Shiitake Mushrooms, sliced thin
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Mirin
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Onion Powder
1/4 Cup Scallions, green & white, sliced
