Instant ramen is just about as easy as it gets when it comes to a quick but satisfying meal. But believe it or not, there are tons of hacks that make microwave ramen even easier! Here are some hacks to turn plain instant ramen into shoyu ramen or spicy peanut ramen.
First, break up your pack of instant ramen noodles while they’re in the bag. Then, pour the noodles into a microwave safe bowl.
Next, add the seasoning packet and some water and microwave it for 4 minutes.
Here’s what you’ll need to upgrade your microwave ramen to shoyu ramen:
- Soy sauce
- Sesame seeds
To make shoyu ramen, stir in some soy sauce and add nori, a soft boiled egg, some scallions, and sesame seeds.
Spicy peanut ramen
To make spicy peanut microwave ramen, you’ll need:
- Peanut butter
- Hot sauce
For spicy peanut ramen, add melted peanut butter and hot sauce to your microwaved noodles and stir.
Then top it off with a lime wedge, crushed peanuts, and cilantro!
