I love magazines and have since I was a kid. Growing up the only magazine we got regularly was the TV Guide. When I was in junior high my sister got a job as a cashier in the local pharmacy and I would spend evenings there at a small card table reading all of the magazines in the store. I vowed that when I grew up and could afford it I would subscribe to every magazine I wanted. Well, one of the guilty pleasures from those days persists and I read People magazine every week. I was excited when they started including recipes and so far all that I have made turned out great. This recipe for Ramen Noodles is super easy and delicious, and guess what, Tom even ate it because I substituted beef broth for the chicken broth.
For this tasty soup you will need carrots, green onion, broth, soy sauce, ramen noodles (toss that nasty flavor packet), sesame oil, sriracha, ketchup, sugar, lime and an egg.
Juice your lime and whip up your egg.
Chop your green onion.
Get your water on to boil.
Measure out your broth.
Mix together soy sauce, ketchup, sriracha, sugar and sesame oil.
When your water is boiling drop in your ramen. I break mine up just so it is a bit easier to eat.
Ramen noodles only need to cook for a couple of minutes. Get them out and drain them and set them aside.
Put the broth into the pan.
When the broth is boiling, reduce the heat to medium and stir in the soy sauce mixture.
Add the carrots and cook for one minute.
Slowly stir in the egg.
Add the noodles back in and let those cook for about a minute.
Get the pan off the burner and add in the lime and green onion and you are ready to eat.
This was so good, and spicy! Tom liked it too but said it wasn't hot at all. Apparently I am still a wuss when it comes to hot food. Tom also added a handful of peanuts because he wanted a little crunch in his soup. He said it was a great addition.
I hope you all are having a great weekend!
