Admit it. Top Ramen noodles may not be the most nutritious meal, but in no time (3 minutes to be exact!), we can make ourselves a nice HOT bowl of noodle soup that is very inexpensive and easy to prepare.
A favorite among college students, we can turn this “simple” yet notorious noodle soup into something EXTRAORDINARY!
With added fiber, vitamins, protein and nearly half the amount of sodium, try this delicious Savory Top Ramen. For the recipe…
- 1 package of your favorite Top Ramen
- 1/2 stalk of broccoli
- 1 large egg
- pinch of pepper
What you need:
- Medium Saucepan
- Sharp knife
- Cutting Board
- 2 Small bowls
1. With your hands or a knife, remove the large leaves of the broccoli stem. Cut off the large tough stalk of the broccoli end. In a small bowl filled with water, wash the broccoli head thoroughly and cut it into 1 inch size florets. Set aside. (Florets include a small part of the broccoli head along with a small piece of stem.)
2. Crack the egg open in a small bowl and whisk the egg together with a fork until blended.
3. Add a pinch of pepper to the eggs. Set aside.
4. In the medium sauce pan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil over medium heat. Before opening the Top Ramen, break noodles into 4 small pieces inside the package. (You can do this by breaking the noodles in half one way and then again across the two halves.
5. Add the uncooked noodles to the saucepan and boil until noodles are soft, but still hold their shape (about 3 minutes). Add HALF the packet of flavoring mix into the noodles included in the Top Ramen package.
6. Slowly pour the whisked egg in a steady stream over the noodles and stir egg until cooked.
7. Add broccoli florets in the noodles. Cook until broccoli turns bright green and is fork tender (Fork tender: With slight pressure you can easily pierce through the broccoli with a fork.)
8. Remove from heat and slowly pour the finished noodles in a bowl.
For a sweet and salty combination: Serve Savory Top Ramen soup with a side of toasted wheat bread topped with 1/2 tablespoon butter and a sprinkle of sugar.
