Ramen noodles is a pantry staple for many. Others may wistfully remember those good ol’ college days, slurping noodles on your dorm room bed. Our Sesame Ginger Garlic Ramen Noodles turns this crazy packaged food into a delicious meal!
Let’s talk through the recipe– and while we do, discuss some ways to doctor up ramen.
We start our recipe by boiling the ramen noodles according to package directions– don’t use the flavor packet though! We’ve got plenty of flavor coming in our sauce.
That’s the first tip for upgrading noodles: a simple sauce.
Start with some of our Fresh Churned Garlic Butter. Add some fresh ginger, sesame oil, brown sugar, and sriracha (if you like spicy). Bring it all together and bam! You’ve got a sauce.
Douse those noodles in it– you’ll want to douse yourself, it’s so good.
Meat and Vegetables
The other two ways to pimp up ramen noodles is to 1) add a protein, or 2) add vegetables. (Or both!) Add some rotisserie chicken, or some ground turkey.
Saute some veggies before tossing them in your sauce. You really can make this super inexpensive food taste amazing!
