Sometimes I’m lazy. I don’t want to spend 45 minutes making a delicious meal. I don’t care about anything to do with the kitchen. I just want food. I want yummy food, I want it to be healthy, and I don’t want to have to go get it because hello, I’m lazy.
For those days, this recipe is one of my favorite things to make. It’s so easy and so much better for you (and tastier) than the ramen you (or at least I) grew up with. It’s sweet, salty, a little spicy, mmmm, it’s everything.
It requires a few simple ingredients, all of which can be purchased in bulk off Amazon, if you’re a freak like me that hoards delicious things. If you aren’t a freak, they can all be purchased at Fry’s, Sprouts, or your local grocer.
This recipe also happens to go really well with random add ins. Like green onions? Pop em in. Need a protein boost, add in some Gardein Sweet and Sour Porkless Bites or Beefless Tips. Mushrooms your thing? Done, saute those and slide them atop your noodles. Red peppers? Fantastic.
My favorite combination by the way is ramen, porkless bites, and green onion. Perfection. That’s the recipe you’ll find below.
- 2 tsp Bee Free Honee
- 1½ tsp Chili Garlic Sauce (I use Huy Fong)
- 2 Tbsp Low Sodium Tamari (I use San-J)
- 1 Bundle organic ramen noodles (I use Hakubaku, contains 3 bundles)
- ½ Package Gardein Sweet and Sour Porkless Bites (do not use the sauce)
- 1 Green onion chopped
- Add ingredients to a small bowl, stir to combine.
- Add water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, add noodles and cook for 4 minutes.
- While ramen is cooking, add porkless bites to small skillet and cook over medium heat turning occassionally.
- Chop your green onion.
- Drain noodles.
- Divide noodles, meat, and green onion into 2 portions. Top each portion with half the sauce.
