When an American is asked to name a college food, what comes to mind? Ramen. In a cup. In a package with the block of noodles and a flavor package. Nutrient-dense? Wholesome? Identifiable ingredients? Nope. Comforting? Warm? Satisfying? You bet.
I have taken this brick of noodles and made it a little bit more bearable but all the more satisfying. Today, brick of of noodles + a time crunch = something I hope you will love as much as I do. 🙂 It won’t take you very long either!
*recipe is vegan/vegetarian*
- green vegetables of choice (I used broccoli and snap peas)
- 1 c. vegetable broth
- 1 tbsp soy sauce/tamari
- 1/2 c. water
- 1 tsp minced garlic (or so)
- 1 block ramen noodles from pkg, or 1 pkg of fresh ramen noodles
- 1 tsp black sesame seeds for garnish & extra flavor
- Saute vegetables of choice in olive oil al dente. Add garlic and kill the heat.
- Remove vegetables from pot and add broth and water to the pot. Bring to a boil.
- Add noodles and cook according to pkg (about 3 minutes).
- Add the soy sauce/tamari to the bottom of serving bowl.
- Grab noodles from broth with a spaghetti spoon. Pour broth into serving bowl over soy sauce/tamari
- Place noodles in bowl in the broth mixture
- Place vegetables on top of noodles and arrange as desired.
- Top with sesame seeds and serve with chopsticks or a fork 😀
Take that, college! And as always, happy eating!
