If you haven’t seen chef Roy Choi’s ramen recipe, go and YouTube it now. Slices of American cheese, some poached eggs, scallions, sesame seeds and cubes of butter are all it takes to smooth out the noodles and amplify the flavours. We’ve tried it. It’s awesome.
Kylie Jenner Snapchatted this recipe and it’s been worshipped in the weeks since. Don’t add any bouillon – or broth – but just add garlic powder, butter and eggs. Winner.
Drain your noodles and pour some of the bottled stuff over them. Add some grated cheese on top and then pop it in the microwave for a minute. Voila! Ramen bolognese.
Cream of onion, corn, chicken – whatever you like. Add a can of soup and some diced bacon to a bubbling pot of ramen and you’ve got a rich chowder – with noods!
This works better with spicy ramen. Add a dollop of peanut butter into the mix for that sumptuous dan dan noodle effect.
Okay, it takes a few more ingredients to give your bowl of instant noodles a Thai flavour but it’s worth it. Make your noods, then add a dollop of coconut milk and some shrimps. Also add a touch of fish sauce, a spoonful of sugar and some Sriracha into the mix. Hey presto! A taste of Siam.
