Do you remember Ramen Noodles? Back when I was a kid and even an adult these were a mainstay – super and I mean, super cheap – like at one point they were like 20 cents a bag! Not a very healthy food by any means, but a bit filling, tasty, easy to take along, if necessary and affordable. You could also jazz them up with meat and veggies, if desired. My favorite was the chicken, by the way, in case you were wondering. You’re probably wondering, by now, if my Favorite Find for this week is Ramen Noodles – the answer is NO! But, they are a GF equivalent to them. When I came across this in the store recently:
I was interested, here was a GF fast food, basically, a take along, make almost anywhere food. A GF Ramen Noodle, a bit more expensive (68 cents at Walmart) and slightly healthier version, that is, this little package has 3 grams of protein and only 2 grams of sugar. I bought a pack to try. I was pleasantly surprised. (This one is also dairy free.) They were pretty tasty, I would have liked them a bit less al dente. But, being my first time I just followed the directions which said 3 minutes for cooking. Anyway, I will definitely get more and keep on hand for quick meal or to take with me. All you really need is hot water. Which you can get anywhere they have coffee. Bring along a dish to “cook” in and you’re all set. I figure all you would have to do, if you don’t have access to a stove, is pour the hottest water available on the noodles, stir in seasoning and let sit for a longer period of time.
I found these in a little Gluten Free section they have at my Walmart, but you can probably find them in the Asian section of your grocery. If not, there’s always Amazon.com.
