What can we say, we love our noodles. Whether it’s Ramen, Pho, Udon, we can’t get enough of it. But how do you fulfill your craving on those days where you’re too lazy to get out of the house? Everyone has a back up stash of instant noodles in their pantry somewhere. We’ll show you how to take your instant noodles one step further with the addition of some basic contents you can easily find in your fridge!
Backstory: The concept of adding an egg and cheese to instant noodles was initially introduced to us by our friend April a couple years ago. We’ve decided to put our own twist on it by adding peanut better in order to somewhat imitate Nan Chuu Japanese Izakaya‘s Tan-Tan Noodle (one of my absolute faves!). Yes it sounds weird, but I swear your tummy will be warm and happy after this.
What you’ll need
- 1 Kimchi Noodle Bowl
- 1 Egg
- 1 Slice of cheese (whatever your preference is)
- 1 Dollop of peanut butter
- 1 Sheet of Yaki Nori
I will be using a Kimchi Noodle Bowl (You know the kind, we’ve all had these since high school when you needed lunch and all you had was a dollar). The best part with this recipe is that you can finish cooking and start eating in 5-10 minutes!
1. Empty the uncooked noodles into a separate bowl and fill the original one with water up to the inner line.
2. Boil water then dump the noodles into the pot and let it soften.
3. Add the prepackaged seasoning.
4. Crack one egg (Tip: Mix immediately with the noodles. If not you’ll end up with a boiled egg).
5. Add a dollop of peanut butter and mix.
6. Dump contents of pot into a bowl. Top with a slice of cheese and cut up the Yaki Nori (Put as much as you want I love lots).
