What I’m Making: Grown Up Souped up Ramens

I made this before I had to go on my diet…

Some time ago I told you that I love to make Souped Up Ramen Noodles.

I really don’t have a recipe. It’s a recipe that varies every time I make it depending on what I have in the kitchen that is available or needs to get used up. On this day in a pan, I fried up a pound of pork sausage and threw in two leftover brats that I needed to use up. I just chopped them up into bite-sized pieces. After that was browned, I added some chopped carrots, half of leftover zucchini, an onion, the inner leftovers of celery, and some chopped raw cabbage.

In another pan, I boiled water and cooked the noodles from two of these Kimchi noodles along with one pack of regular Ramen noodles. I had chicken flavor so used that.

If you haven’t tried Kimchi noodles and like a little spice in your life, give these a try. They are slightly thicker than regular Ramen noodles and the season packets are spicy. I laugh and call them grown-up Ramens. HA!

I added all of the seasoning packets to the meat and veggie pan. I also added soy sauce to taste.

Once the noodles were done I drained them and put the noodles in with the sausage and veggies. Mix it up and eat.

I just love this. It makes a big batch and warms up wonderfully. I shared some with Karl and then had it for a couple of more meals. I just love it. I actually love it for many reasons…it’s a relatively inexpensive meal, it reheats wonderfully, it’s tasty with some spice, and I can use up a lot of leftovers and they don’t taste leftover.

It’s simple, easy and I think pretty tasty. Let me know if you give it a try!!

  1. That’s a great idea. I got ramened out about 7 years ago. I have just started getting some for my grands. I may try your idea. It sounds like a big winner to me.

  2. I “enhance” Ramen or canned soups by adding chopped vegetables that I have and frozen vegetable mix when I heat them up. I add some soy sauce and some miso if I have it. I feel that I am adding some extra nutrition to it. Your recipe goes even further and sounds delicious.

  3. Sounds really good!I’ve only used Ramen noodles for salads, but this maybe something different I should try. You are very creative, not just with quilting, stitching, but also with food! I enjoy reading how you put together different foods.

  4. I don’t ever use or eat Ramen because of the extremely high salt content. Do you take the flavor packets out or do you use them? I don’t think they are good for children to eat either; the salt content is prohibitive. What does someone else say about this?

    1. Great idea. I like a saute veggie mix I get at Kroger and especially like the one with noodles. This way I can get the plain veggie mix and add my own noodles. (they are often on sale) I have a few ramen packages. I will leave out the sauce packet since the veggies come with their own.
