This is pretty basic ramen - feel free to doctor it up with any additions you like, or spice it up with a squirt of Sriracha.

  • Makes: Serves 1.


1 pkg. instant ramen noodles

1 egg

1 tsp. butter

grated carrot, fresh spinach, or leftover veggies (totally optional)

2 processed cheese slices

toasted sesame seeds

chopped green onion



1Cook the noodles like you normally would - according to the package directions - when the noodles are about halfway cooked, crack in the egg and poach it in the broth over low heat, basting with broth or covering with a lid briefly to help it cook through.

2Carefully pour the lot into a bowl, add the butter and any veggies you like, and immediately top with the cheese slices. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, green onion and Sriracha to taste and serve immediately.
