I have several homemade ramen noodle recipes for you to try (not soup).
I love the crunchy oriental salad recipe, and I have a
wonderful chicken salad recipe that is delicious on a croissant.
ORIENTAL SALAD RECIPE
3/4 cup oil
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
2 or 3 TBS homemade soy sauce
1 (16oz) bag broccoli slaw or coleslaw or lettuce
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1 bag ramen noodles
1 cup almonds, sliced
Toast the almonds and ramen noodles in a frying pan until golden brown; gives it a more crispy crunch.
Meanwhile, combine dressing ingredients. When ready to serve, pour dressing over all. Crush ramen noodles over the salad and discard seasoning packet. Mix together and serve.
This is another delicious homemade ramen noodle recipe. If you are in a hurry, use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.
HOMEMADE RAMEN NOODLE CHICKEN SALAD RECIPE
2 or 3 cups grilled teriyaki chicken breast, chopped
1/2 package shredded cold slaw mix
1/2 package garden salad mix
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
5 ounces slivered almonds
2 TBS sunflower seeds
2 pkgs ramen noodles
3 TBS canola oil
3/4 cup canola oil
4 TBS rice vinegar
1/4 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/4 tsp homemade onion powder
1 tsp homemade soy sauce
4 TBS white sugar
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Mix the dressing ingredients together a few minutes before serving and set aside.
Smash ramen noodles and discard seasoning packets. Place in a frying pan with the 3 tablespoons of canola oil over medium heat. Once noodles begin to brown, add the slivered almonds. Once the noodles are golden brown, remove from heat and set aside.
Combine cabbage, green onions, chicken and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Add the ramen mixture and stir well. Add the dressing and stir to coat evenly. If you like more dressing, just make 1/2 batch of extra dressing.
SUMMER COLD NOODLE SALAD
6 ounces Asian Noodles (soba, somen or ramen)
1-1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 TBS brown sugar
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper
juice and zest of one lime
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Boil noodles in salted water until cooked through. Cool under running water and chill until cold. Combine all dressing ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
Toss noodles in dressing and top with whatever veggies you have around like cucumber, carrot, snow peas, bean sprouts or cilantro. Squeeze a lime wedge over the top and serve.
