A Health Conscious Ramen Recipe
(with Chicken and Vegetables)
Instant ramen noodles make a meal that is quick, cheap, and easy but not the most nutritious. When made following the package directions, a bowl of ramen provides no vegetables, little protein, and lots of sodium.
This recipe offers an alternative that is easy and boosts the nutritional value with more vegetables and protein. When made with low sodium broth, the sodium is cut by half.
1 package chicken flavor instant ramen noodles
2 cups frozen stir fry vegetables
4 ounces cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken
Broth Alternative: 2 cups low sodium chicken broth, ¼ tsp garlic powder, ¼ tsp ginger powder, ¼ cup chopped onion, 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
Garnish such as spinach, scallions, edamame
Hard boil the egg in the shell for 9 minutes, cool.
Cook frozen vegetables in microwave for 2-3 minutes until cooked but crunchy. You can also use any combination of fresh vegetables such as broccoli, snow peas, carrots, onions, and mushrooms – cook these until al dente
Warm and slice chicken
Choose your broth and noodles: Either cook the noodles and seasoning packet according to package directions. OR for a lower sodium version, sauté chopped onion for 5 minutes, then add the low-sodium broth, soy sauce, garlic powder, and ginger powder. Bring to a boil, add noodles, and cook for 3 minutes.
Divide noodles and broth into 2 portions
