Ramen is best used a base to build on, but you need veggies, spices and meat (on a good day).
I eat it frequently according to variations of the following recipe:
cut up a carrot, a couple of green onions, about 1/3 of a bellpepper, broccoli, peas, mushrooms, etc. anything that you have. Try not to use the exact
same ingredients or measures every time.
Fry the meat cut in small pieces, add the hard veggies and fry them for a minute or so with garlic and fresh ground pepper. If the meat lacks enough
fats, fry it in a little peanut oil or similar. Add the water and the rest of the veggies, bring to boil and add the ramen.
In the bowl you serve it in, add the powder, a tablespoon or so of soy sauce, a teaspoon of worcestershire and another of balsamic or some other
flavored vinegar, and a dash of lime or lemon. Add a few spoons of hot broth from the pan and mix it up, then add the ramen and veggies.
Yum...tasty, nutritious and variable.
Spices are compact, lightweight, and valuable...a good selection is a must-have in any good bob or house supply. Any excess is good trading
It takes very little to make a complete meal, just scale it up for the number of folks you feed.
