Easy Ramen Dish

Extended Life for: Sun-dried Tomato Garlic Ramen is not really my style. But it's quick. And it's kind of light. So, at one in the afternoon before a Super Bowl party that starts at four, it's the perfect filler. Not to mention, I enjoy recipes that are inherently cheap and delicious, because everyone should be able to eat something delicious, even if they're strapped for cash. This is super basic and could easily take on many variations, I'll include some variation ideas after giving you the run down for the dish pictured.


Add boiling water to a package of Ramen or prepare noodles (no seasoning) in the microwave. Heat 2-3 tablespoons oil (olive is preferable) in a skillet. Add some sun-dried tomato garlic or 4 cloves of minced garlic and a small handful of onions if you have them on hand. Saute until fragrant. Drain noodles of water, pour infused oil over noodles and toss. Enjoy as is or add fresh chopped tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and/or pickled peppers.

  • Before drizzling noodles with oil, place some fresh chopped spinach in the bowl with the noodles
  • Toss in some Garbanzo or Pinto beans
  • Add soy nuts or another nut
  • Infuse oil with chile pepers rather than garlic or in addition to garlic
  • Infuse oil with fresh minced ginger
  • Infuse oil with curry powder
  • Chop some apples, add some raisins, toss noodles with some yogurt, honey and cinnamon and skip the oil procedure all together!

Be creative! This is an easy concept to mess around with and hopefully keep cheap!
