I know what you're thinking - Ramen? Gross! I'm not in college anymore.
It's all about deliciousness and ease, though - and it's not terribly unhealthy for you (tip: ditch the packet of seasoning filled with sodium) but you can't escape the simple carbs.
And... maybe you are in college, and in that case - here's a gourmet ramen recipe - you're welcome.
1. Cook the Ramen as you normally would, either in the microwave or in boiled water for about 2-3 minutes, set aside.
2. Peel, rinse, and set aside shrimp (you can get them frozen or fresh)
3. In a bowl, mix together (or whisk) chunky peanut butter, sri-racha or spicy chili garlic sauce, and soy sauce. This shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. I generally measured equal parts for the soy sauce and peanut butter, and then gauged spice based on my tolerance.
4. In a pan, start sauteing your favorite vegetables in medium heat for about 3 minutes in vegetable oil and a bit of chopped garlic.
5. Add the noodles, shrimp, and sauce to the mix, and saute around for about 5 minutes (lower heat and extend time if you need to) until everything is mixed evenly.
OPTIONAL STEP: Crack an egg and saute around until scrambled in.
6. Garnish with lime and fresh bean sprouts, and voila! (Crushed peanuts is optional)
