"Soup-ed" Up Ramen
Penny-pinching doesn't have to mean skimping on flavor. Here's a way to take the humble ramen kit and turn it into an inexpensive, yet satisfying meal.
First off: Throw away that seasoning packet. It's loaded with salt, but doesn't really deliver any bang of flavor. Instead, prepare the noodles according the package directions, then "soup" up a broth with ingredients you may already have on hand, such as curry powder or harissa. Sunny loves gochujang for that funky kick. You can bulk up your ramen with rotisserie chicken or boiled egg halves and freshen things up by adding sliced scallions and a spritz of lime. Souped-up ramen is the delicious way to slurp and save!
