Faux “Fridge Clean Out” Ramen

It’s Tasty Tuesday isn’t it??? You know we all have a few Go-To meals that are easy and delish and for me on nights that Matt works late that is very important. Less Kitchen time for ONE = More TV for ME!! I created this Faux Ramen for a few reasons…. I love cooking Asian, I love noodles and I only had random ingredients in my fridge. Now don’t be scared this recipe is tried and true, I make it at least once a week. And in fact 2 weeks ago I made a version of this for Matt and he was not looking forward to this meal at all…. but… he LOVED it! I do use Ramen packets with the seasoning packet (gasp) but hey who cares! Lets dive into this…….

Faux Fridge Clean Out Ramen for ONE (double for 2, obvs)


Ramen Packet, any flavor

Chicken Broth

1-2 Eggs

Soy Sauce

Chili Sauce or Sriracha

Any veggie, I prefer Brussel Sprouts and I always have some in my fridge! BUT you can use anything, in fact tomorrow I will use some left over Zucchini that I have! And below I had 1/2 an onion that I added to the mix!

*Preheat your oven to 400
*Roast whatever veggie you have with Salt, Pepper and EVOO until crisp! These only took 12-15 minutes!

 * In a pot Boil 2 cups of Chicken Broth or if you only have 1 cup leftover from something then add 1 cup water! Easy Peasy!
* Add 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce, Seasoning packet and 1 Teaspoon of Chili sauce (or Sriracha)
* Bring this to a boil for at least 5 minutes or until your veggies are done (for timing)

**In the meantime make a 6 minute egg……. Boil water, add in 2 eggs and cook for 6 minutes for runny insides. Then careful peel and set aside!**

 * Now you are ready to add your noodles and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until done!

Lets build your bowl…….
Add all the noodles and enough of the broth to cover!
Add your veggies on one side and your sliced eggs (carefully) to the other!
Add more soy sauce to taste and WHAM!! You have easy dinner for ONE!

When I made this for Matt I knew he needed a meat so I cooked up some bacon which I crumbled into this, I also had leftover chicken once and I added that shredded to this bowl also! You really can make this your own and I swear it is delish and it really tastes complex, no one would ever know how easy this was and how you just “jazzed” up plain old ramen!!!
Take that college Ramen Noodles!

    If you ever find your way to Tampa we will have to meet up and I will take you to a ramen restaurant in our neighborhood called Ichicoro Ramen. My brother in law owns the building it is in so we know the restaurant owner and chef. I was scared at first too for my first real ramen experience. -Sarah Couture
