Better instant ramen

  1. Put just enough water in your pot to cook your ramen. This is probably less than you think it has to be.
  2. Add soup base and garlic to the water.
  3. Add the lemon juice, tomato juice, or lemon/tomato slice to the water. The acid is necessary if you want to counteract the saltiness from the soup base.
  4. Heat the water to boiling.
  5. Add your vegetables (minus the spring onions) and your ramen brick. (Do not include the flavor packet that came with the ramen.)
  6. Cook for three minutes, or until the noodles have your preferred consistency.
  7. Pour into a bowl. If you used a slice of lemon or tomato, you may want to discard it at this point.
  8. Top with spring onions and other seasonings, and serve.
