This is my new favorite meal: Boil ramen noodles. Throw out the seasoning packet. Stir fry some vegetables and maybe some chicken in a little bit of peanut oil. Add some black bean sauce or other appropriate seasoning. Add noodles to stir fry just before serving. Enjoy. My former roommate/current neighbor, who I make this dish with, freaks out about the nutrition information on the ramen noodles. I assured him that most of the fat grams were in the seasoning packet and not the noodles. HOWEVER, I discover that the noodles are indeed fried in oil. Is there a healthier alternative to the dried-brick instant ramen noodles? I have access to an Asian supermarket but I thought I would ask the fine folks on the HTF for some advice before heading down there.
