This is a quick and cheap way to make ramen noodles edible (and surprisingly tasty...) with things I have around all of the time. It's also reasonably balanced (starch, vegetable and protein). I like to use natural peanut butter because the pea liquid usually adds enough sweetness for my tastes.
- 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles (not the fancy kind, just normal beef or chicken or something)
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 (16 ounce) can peas
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tablespoon of grated ginger
- red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 1 (6 ounce) can tuna, drained
- 1 lemon
- Boil the water, liquid from the peas, the garlic, the ginger and the red pepper flakes in a saucepan.
- When the mixture comes to a boil, add the seasoning packet from the ramen and the noodles as well as the peas. Bring it all back up to a boil.
- Turn off the element and let it sit for five minutes so that the noodles absorb the water and the peas heat through.
- At the end, stir in the peanut butter, the tuna and the juice from the lemon.
