Dinner doesn’t get any easier than this! This semi-homemade ramen is a breeze to throw together and you can have dinner ready in under 10 minutes! How often does that happen? We all need a few simple go-to dinner or lunch recipes that require minimal prep and minimal clean up without sacrificing on flavor and this one fits that description perfectly. It uses pre-cut vegetables, pre-cooked shrimp (which you can also cook yourself if you’re prefer) and a package of the delicious Nissin RAOH Umami Miso Ramen. I recently found out about Miso Ramen and I am in love! For those who haeven’t heard of it, Miso is a uniquely Japanese style of ramen that’s a relative newcomer onto the ramen scene. Originating about 50 years ago in Hokkaido (northern Japan), it’s become a modern classic. Nissin makes it easy to make this traditional meal at home with three AMAZING flavors, and unlike existing instant noodle products which are deep fried, RAOH’s ramen noodles are not fried, so they contain no trans fats, no cholesterol and very little saturated fat. I know my lunch options just got a whole lot more exciting!
It wasn’t until recently that I’ve actually started to like the taste and texture of shrimp. I never grew up eating it so it was one of those things I kind of had to learn to appreciate, at least somewhat. I actually I loved it in this ramen though and it’s not often that I would use the word “love” when it comes to shrimp. Apparently shrimp and ramen just go together. It was something new for me because I always prefer chicken or pork in my ramen.
This is a recipe I would use again and again. This really is more of an idea than a recipe – it just shows how easy it is to jazz up a package of ramen. But not just any ramen, the Nissin RAOH are my new favorite kind of ramen and they don’t require adding in extra flavors and ingredients which I love. You can order them here:
