When I was in college, I would make ramen what my roommate called "miso style": I would boil a package of ramen, throw in some basil, chili powder, and garlic salt to taste, then crack in an egg and let that boil with the noodles. To finish it off I would throw in some steamed vegetable medley and maybe some chunks of grilled chicken/beef and eat it as a hearty soup. It was hearty and pretty good.

Similar to YOJULEZ, I break up the ramen noodles into little bite size pieces and saute them in a little butter with sliced almonds and sesame seeds until golden then sprinkle them on top of salads. Yummy!

I thought there was too much fat in Ramen noodles

I had this salad at a BBQ this weekend, it was super delicious. There were "good ol boys" there that said they don't even normally like salads/veggies but they ate a plateful of this one. I'm going to try to lighten it up even more by using EVOO instead of the butter and canola oil.
Ingredients 1 package (3 ounces) ramen noodles 1 cup chopped walnuts 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup canola oil 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce 8 cups torn romaine 1/2 cup chopped green onions 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
Discard seasoning packet from ramen noodles or save for another use. Break noodles into small pieces. In a large skillet, cook noodles and walnuts in butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until golden; cool.
For dressing, in a small bowl, whisk the sugar, oil, vinegar and soy sauce. Just before serving combine the romaine, onions, strawberries and noodle mixture in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss gently. Yield: 12 servings.

I soften them and in the meanwhile saute veggies and chicken. I add low sodium soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sriracha, and some of the seasoning packet. Mix it all together and let the noodles absorb the extra sauce! Garnish with cilantro :)
I love to saute up some swiss chard or beet greens with a little garlic and EVOO, throw in some leftover chopped chicken and then partially cooked ramen noodles (still a little underdone) and the seasoning packet. The noodles finish cooking in the liquid coming from the chard and the most awesome flavors mix together... YUM!

You can toss them in coleslaw for a crunch.
Or, prepare per package directions and add in some spinach and egg. My mom loves to eat it that way.
Toast the broken noodles in a frying pan, then add seasoning packet, 1 cup cooked ground chicken boneless skinless two dill pickles chopped onion water cook until noodles are tender you can add hot sauce or pepper.
