Sesame Noodles with Instant Ramen

Click here to watch me make this in under 30 seconds!

Sesame Ramen Noodles in bowl.

Oh look, just me giving you a reason to throw that dang Instant Ramen flavor packet away!

There are few things as yummy as carbs tossed in a really easy sauce, thrown into a bowl, and eaten while binging Yellowstone. Or whatever. This is hypothetical. 

This lunchtime fave is as simple as heating up some sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, chili sauce, peanut butter, and rice wine vinegar in a skillet.

While that’s getting all good and bubbly, boil up some instant ramen noodles, drain, and toss them right on in your skillet-o-flavor. 

Minutes. This takes minutes, and once you have these ingredients in your fridge, you can make it over and over again.

Super tasty! I tried it with the Miracle Noodles from Costco like you had suggested. Yum! I garnished with sesame seeds, green onions and a little bit of chopped peanuts.
