Things You’d Need
2 packs of ramen (any flavor you love)
3 tbsp. oil (vegetable)
2 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 medium finely chopped red onion
1 finely sliced big carrot
2 tbsp. soy sauce (low sodium)
1 tsp. white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon Sriracha
3 cups of baby spinach, roughly chopped
Lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon crumbled roasted unsalted peanuts
Each noodle block should be cut in half. Set aside the noodles and one packet of seasoning aside
Warm the oil in a big pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, onion, and carrot once the oil begins to shimmer. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the vegetables have softened and the garlic and ginger have begun to brown, then add the soy sauce, vinegar, Sriracha, and approximately half a teaspoon of the ramen spice. Toss the noodle cakes and vegetables in the sauce with spinach, noodles, and half a cup of water. When the noodles begin to soften (approximately 4 or 5 minutes), break them apart with a large spoon and toss them briskly in the sauce.
Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the noodles are done
Squeeze in a good amount of lime juice. Taste and season with extra lime juice if needed, then top with the peanuts.
And there you have it! Some delicious ways to make ramen!
