Ramen noodles on steroids

March 19, 2009

This afternoon I’m making myself some dinner to take to work. I call this dish ramen noodles on steroids.

I’m using maruchan yakisoba noodles, which are basically like ramen noodles, but with more packets of stuff in them. Cook the noodles in the microwave like you normally would, and while that’s heating up, crack a large egg in a bowl, and stir it lightly with a dash of salt, cut up chive or bean sprout, peanut or seaseme seed oil, and a dash of veggie oil.

Set a pan on the stove and turn up the heat to high. Once the noodles are done cooking, drain the water and throw the noodle patty in the pan. Pour the egg mix over it, and then add about have of the contents of the packets the noodles come with. Stir until the egg cooks.

Now, I cocktail waitress until 3 am, so this is rarely enough for me. I will also include potatoe dumplings in with this meal. That will be the next recepie.

Asain inspired tortilla wraps

Can of white chicken
Spoonful of mayo, mixed with wasabi powder and seaseme seeds. Dash of soy sause or sea salt.
Shredded leuttice and/or carrot
Optional: sprouts

About budget: if you make asain food often, it’s an investment to have things like soy sause, sea salt, wasabi powder or paste, and other cooking oils like seaseme or peanut,and rice vinegar, but totally worth it. You’ll use all of these regularly if you cook like I do.

Tortillas are cheaper when bought uncooked.

Often if you look in the reduced bin you can find discontinued gourmet spices and the like for cheap!

An Introduction

March 18, 2009

It’s really easy for college kids to live off a TexMex diet because it’s inexpensive. It is not particulary healthy though, and I prefer Asain food to TexMex, so this blog is an attempt to categorize, create, and track down recipes for cheap, healthy Asain food.

Also, as a college student, I work two jobs 65 hours a week, an go to class full time, so all of these recepies will be conducive to a quick, on the go lifestyle.
