Hey, why not!? But, if you ferment the sardines, press out the juices and turn them into a sauce - you've got noodles with fish sauce!

I like to keep it very simple. ......chopped weiners, cabbage, & green onions. Served in a traditional ramen bowl.

This is all I ate when I was a student & single, except I ate directly out of the pot.

And since I live in L.A. there are many ramen shops (Japanese) close to where I live and their menus consist of dozens of different kinds of ramens.

what's really nice is to take an egg that's been beaten and pour it into the pan while the broth is simmering and whisk it in........it gives a really nice texture and thickens the broth.......we like to add shrimp, chicken, etc, and other veggies......fresh baby napa cabbage is fantastic..........as well as bean sprouts......fresh not canned............I also like to add the chopped broccoli slaw if I can find it as well as fresh spinach leaves.......have not been home for 6 months so I have no idea what this stuff costs now.......probably and arm and ............

I LOVE those little bags of "broccoli slaw" (actually just slivered tender broccoli stems). Buy them all the time to add to soups & stirfries.

My mom makes a great salad with Ramen noodles. I do not have the measurements, but it is:

2 packages of Ramen noodles
Shredded Cabbage
vinegar
oil
sugar
salt
toasted slivered almonds

You add the seasoning packs to the dressing and crumble up the noodles and mix everything together. It is delicious.

I used to buy just about every flavor or Ramen noodle soup mix. I thought they were great for a late night snack, light lunch or whatever until one day I decided to look at the list of ingredients and nutritional chart. HOLEY MOLEY! It really is nothing more than sodium in a bowl. Now I throw away the flavor packet and use the noodles for other things. Salads for one.
When you think about it, how good can something be that sells for 10 cents per package??

We keep a supply in Mexico for dinner the night we fly in. Toooo tired to go out or to go to the store. Open, cook and add a can of corn. Not wonderful but, it works.
