Once in a while (*ahem* a lot) I end up with a cold of some sorts due to my amazing sinuses. It’s just something I’ve come to deal with over time. Due to this, I’ve concocted a number of food items or drinks that help me clear out a bit and feel better. One of these is my version of Ramen as a stew almost.
I get it, Ramen isn’t good for you. But the warm broth and soup helps my throat immensely and helps loosen my sinuses a little for some pleasant relief and some amazing flavor.
- (4) packs of either Beef or Chicken Ramen (haven’t tried other flavors)
- (2) Cans of Beef Broth
- 1 cup (8oz) of water
- Can of sweet corn
- Can of Carrots
- Can of green beans
- 1 tsp of Chili oil (or more depending on taste)
Bring the beef broth and water to a slight boil then decrease temperature. Stir in chili oil, let simmer or 1 minute. Add in broken up noodles, stir and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add in vegetables, turn down heat to low and let sit for 4-5 minutes until Ramen noodles are tender. Serve.
This comes out with a solid kick with the chili oil and a great flavor to open your sinuses up when congested. Plus, it’s Ramen and cheap for all the ingredients. Cheers!
