Ramen Upgrade

Oy! It’s the flu. My darling husband suffered through over the weekend and this week it’s my turn. Now that I’m working on eating again, I’m ready to get a few more vitamins in me. While perusing Pinterest in bed, I stumbled across this kicked up ramen recipe and knew it was just the thing for me today. Thankfully, we had a moderate range of veggies on hand already and very little effort was involved to make this veggie-packed meal.

Ramen Upgrade (for one)
adapted from martha stewart

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 medium yellow onion, diced medium
1 small carrot, diced medium
1 small stalk celery, diced medium
3/4 cup chopped kale
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
Freshly ground pepper
2 cups vegetable broth
1 package (3 ounces) ramen, broken into quarters (seasoning packet discarded)

In a medium pot, heat oil over medium. Add onion, carrots, and celery and saute until soft, about 6 minutes. Season with pepper. Add broth, bring to a boil. Add ramen and kale, reduce heat, and simmer until noodles are tender and the kale is just wilted, 3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and serve hot.

  1. My boyfriend loves ramen, but they are so bad. This is a great healthy alternative. I will totally make this.

    I recently started my food/lifestyle blog and I would love your feedback! Would you mind taking a look when you get a chance? :)
