Ramen is bad for you? Considering you can prepare a bowl in 2 minutes and for under $.50, is that really a shock? But there's something just so yummy about it! Confession. I've never prepared ramen the traditional way. Personally, I always prepare them like noodle and not soup (ie dry). But its been years since I've had the cheap version. These days, I like to try to eat a bit healthier, so I've come up with a couple of healthier ramen alternatives! This version is reminiscent of the dry version I like to make. And instead of dry noodles, I like to use Annie Chun's Fresh Pak Noodles. They come pre-cooked so prep is just as quick as the "original" version. Enjoy!
Noodles - Cooked
1 tbs sesame oil
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp honey
1 tsp salt
1 tbs spice blend (I love this one but you can also use 1/2 tbs chili flakes, 1/4 tbs black sesame seeds, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp chili powder)
Mix everything expect the noodles. Toss the noodles with the prepared sauce.
Serve hot. (Side note this recipe get better the longer it sits)
