Jazz up basic ramen noodles with toasted sesame oil, quick-cooked broccoli and a jammy soft-boiled egg. To cut back on sodium, look for ramen varieties with less than 600 mg sodium per serving or use less of the seasoning packet. Source: EatingWell.com, July 2020

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add broccoli; cook for 2 minutes. Add noodles (reserve the seasoning packet); cook until the noodles are tender, about 3 minutes more. Drain the broccoli and noodles and return to the pan.

  • Add sesame oil, sesame seeds and half of the seasoning packet (discard the remainder or reserve for another use); toss well to combine. Transfer to a bowl; top with egg and serve.


Tip: To soft-boil eggs: Place eggs in a saucepan; add water to just cover the eggs. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes for perfect soft-set yolks.
