10-Minute Vegetarian Ramen

I like to pretend that I’m a ramen snob, but in reality, I grew up on the super-bad-for-you packaged 99 cent packaged ramen and still love it. Last week, I was craving this ramen but wanted something a teeny bit healthier than what comes in the standard package. I looked in the refrigerator for some veggies and threw this baby together in about 10 minutes. It’s super satisfying, easy, and makes you feel a little bit better about eating the ramen brand from your college days!

  • 3 ramen packages (9 oz); any flavor will do because you won’t be using the flavor packet
