My ramen experiment   Leave a comment

My first recipe: Ramen-broccoli-chickpeas with garlic and olive oil


2-4 tablespoons olive oil

1/2-1 cup broccoli florets

1/2-1 cup chickpeas

2 cloves of garlic

1 package ramen

about 1/2 pack of ramen seasoning (the little packet that comes with the ramen. I use chicken flavored ramen)



optional: grated cheese, balsamic vinegar

Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil into your trusty microwave-safe bowl. Add the broccoli and microwave for 1 minute. In the meantime, crush and peel the garlic. Cut the garlic into pieces into the broccoli. Add chickpeas, salt, and pepper, and microwave for another 1 1/2 minutes. Put this mixture aside (onto a plate or whatever floats your boat). Tear/crush (you should end up with smaller pieces of ramen… or if you like, leave it whole) the ramen in the bowl (or if you have the luxury of another microwave-safe bowl, use that) with about 2 cups of water and microwave for about 2-3 minutes. Drain the water when the ramen is done (I found it works well with a plastic spoon, although you will lose some of the ramen). Add the ramen and the broccoli mixture and season to taste with more olive oil, salt, pepper, and a few pinches of the ramen seasoning. You can even add some grated cheese (parmesan would be good) or a splash of balsamic vinegar or lemon juice. Guten Appetit!
