Calories in Maruchan - Ramen Noodles, Chicken
I don't like the salt and love to reduce the carbs, si I use 1/2 pkg or so of the flavoring and about 1/2 of the noodles. Then I add some hot pepper flakes, my ground pepper blend which include Szechuan peppers, lots of veggies (mushrooms, bamboo shoots, some matchstick carrots, zucchini, grated ginger, garlic - maybe some thinly sliced chicken or pork - just a scosh of low sodium soy sauce, mostly for color, some chard or other greens cut in a chiffonade) and make something of a hot and sour soup from the base. A little unseasoned brown rice vinegar, a couple of drops of sesame oil .. cheap eats, but tasty, and, seemingly, not too many calories and somewhat reduced salt.
I leave out the egg and the tofu and fill up on veggies.
