Here at Crowded Earth Kitchen, we love to cook from scratch. But let’s be real – life happens, and sometimes everyone needs to just throw something together FAST. On those days, Fancypants Ramen Noodles is just the dish you need. Enjoy!
Ingredients (Makes 2 servings)
1 package (3 ounces) chicken flavor instant ramen
1 cup finely sliced cabbage
1/3 cup sliced carrot
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 tablespoon real peanut butter (not hydrogenated)
Step 1) Bring about 3 cups of water to a boil. Add instant ramen noodles – do not add the seasoning packet that comes with the noodles yet.
Step 2) Set timer for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, add cabbage, carrot, and garlic to the pot of boiling water and noodles.
Step 3) Set timer for 1 minute. After 1 minute, drain water from pot using a fine strainer (so that you don’t lose the minced garlic).
Step 4) While noodles and veggies are still in the strainer, add peanut butter, coconut milk, and seasoning packet to the empty pot. Whisk together, then add noodles and veggies back to the pot. Toss gently to coat the noodles and veggies evenly. Serve immediately!
