Making Low-Fat & Healthier Ramen Noodles

<< < (2/2)

Wanted to share a preparation tip that I learned from a neighborhood kid on my street, who in turn had been advised by his family doctor. You know those packages of dry, inexpensive ramen noodles you can get at the store in the oriental foods section?  Well, they're LOADED with fats from hydrogenated oils used for long shelf life. To greatly reduce the amount of fat, first you boil the noodles according to the directions.  The trick is at the same time you either boil ANOTHER pot of water on the stove or boil a cup or two in the microwave. When the noodles are cooked, you drain out the water that the noodles were cooked in (you can see the oily fat residue floating on the surface) and then you pour in the second pot of hot, clean water in place of the old.  Then, continue with adding the packet of powdered seasoning and voila! You have healthier noodles with the same taste, lower fat! Of course to make it even better, add thinly sliced carrots, string beans, sliced mushrooms, green onions, etc. A warm, inexpensive and stomach-filling dish on a cold winter's day! Enjoy!
