Cheap quick and easy meals are a staple for almost every household. This recipe is all three. This isn't your standard packaged ramen with a spice pack. This ramen is souped up with real Asian ingredients like sriracha, sesame, and soy. It's got a soft boiled egg in there for some protein, and some greens for color, and you know, the good green stuff. These noodles are spicy and delicious. If you want to turn up the heat, double the sriracha. It'll burn your face off. If you want to tone down the heat, half the sriracha. You can use packaged ramen noodles. Just discard the spice pack. Alternately, you can purchase soba noodles which are very similar and cook quickly.
