French Onion Noodle Bowl

French Onion Noodle Bowl

  • 3 ounce package ramen (baked is preferable)
  • 3 Tbsp diced dried onion
  • 2 Tbsp cooked and dehydrated/freeze-dried hamburger or ‘beef’ tvp
  • 2 tsp low sodium beef bouillon
  • 1 tsp celery flakes
  • 1⁄4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1⁄4 tsp instant stuffing mix (Stove Top)

At home pack the onion, hamburger, bouillon, celery and pepper in a small bag. Pack the stuffing in a small bag and tuck the ramen noodles with them

One pot method:

Add 2 cups water to your pot. Add in the bag containing the onions and beef, along with the broth mix. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes to soak.

Discard the “flavor” packet for the ramen. Bring the water to a boil, add in the ramen and cook on a gentle boil for 3 minutes. Pull off the heat and top with the stuffing mix.

Serves 1.
I used baked ramen for the noodles. They are low fat and taste better than traditional ramen, like a Chuka Soba noodle, which can be used instead as well.
On the bouillon, you can use broth sticks – I find them at Trader Joe’s and they are lower sodium. You can of course use the “flavor” packet in the ramen, let’s just say it doesn’t taste as good!
