Crispy Ramen


Transform the dorm room staple into something new. 


Did you know that you can BAKE ramen? This was a recent discovery for me and I am LOVING it.


It’s as simple as…

>Preheat oven=350 >Open ramen, toss the seasoning

>Bake = 10 min


Serve as:

base for a bowl, serve with beans

fruit or veggie

with an egg
