I like chicken flavored Maruchen Ramen....I'd mix the cooked noodles (I'd drain the stock) with havarti, microwave until the cheese was melted and voila. Comfort food.

Thanks so much! I'll have to look into this. I've thought about going by Grand Asia and seeing if there's any hope of finding gluten free ramen, but just haven't made the trip. I'm not sure I'm ready to try and resist the temptation of the steamed pork buns that I miss so much. LOL!

When I was growing up, dirt poor, no other food in the house- yep I ate it & I still do if the craving hits me.
But it's loaded w/ sodium & preservatives & also high in calories. I maybe have it twice a year, lol

The idea of rice noodles being gluten free made me think about other asian noodles, like glass noodles, soba, rice noodles. While I'm not terribly familiar with gluten issues, a quick google search produced this article. Personally, I love glass (aka cellophane bean thread noodles) and rice noodles - more than ramen, and they are cheap! MOST of the ones mentioned in this article are available in Grand Asia/

Too many empty carbs, fat and sodium. Just the noodles are bad as it is carbs and gluten. No bread, pasta, pizza, cookies or cake for the same reasons.

If it is in the interior aisles of the store it's processed; stick to the perimeter. There you will find the produce, dairy and meat cases - real food.

Sure, I just toss the flavour packet, cook them, then add them as the noodles to any stir-fried noodle dish I'm concocting. It changes every time based on what's in the fridge or pantry - chicken, onions, peppers, mushrooms, corn, black beans, kale, broccoli, etc - combined with seasonings like soy sauce, marsala sherry, rice wine vinegar, chill rooster sauce, garlic powder, lime juice, and so on. We eat this several times a month, as a 'use up' meal for odds and ends.

You can buy proper noodles in the ethnic aisle or special stores, but they're a lot more expensive and hey, it's not like I'm going for authenticity anyway!

Sometimes I get a craving for the chili flavored ramen noodles. I OD'd on them a few years ago so now I just eat them from time to time.

I give up trying to post the picture

I do not. I think ramen is the worst kind of noodle and I got really sick of eating it by the time I got out of primary school. For some reason people used to trade packages of them at school for their best snacks. Very valuable currency in the kindermarket.
