Guest Post: Alicia Van Maanen Sausage Ramen Soup Recipe
10 hour work days on Wednesdays are always fun.
I came home tonight, seriously exhausted, to an empty house. Took a bath (it was glorious), did the dishes and cleaned a bit, and decided that I was starvin marvin and couldn’t wait for supper until hubby got home.
I was going to make this sausage gnocchi soup that I had planned on my menu, and then I realized that the spinach in the fridge had water in it and the mushrooms… well they didn’t look good either. So those got put in the garbage and I decided to get creative
I had turkey breakfast sausage that I had browned the night before so I needed to use that (before that went bad too )… and I felt like soup and something warm and cozy-feeling.
So here’s what I made… I really didn’t know about it. Like seriously I was putting it all together fully preparing to make a frozen pizza afterwards.
Then I did my mandatory taste test… OMG you guys. It made my heart happy.
Here is the recipe
- 1# breakfast sausage (browned)
- 1 bag oriental/stir fry veggies (broccoli, peppers, etc)
- 1 teaspoon ginger (I use the kind in a squeeze bottle… its bomb)
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 2 Tbsp (ish) soy sauce
- 1/2 c (ish) teriyaki sauce
- 2 bags ramen noodles, minus the seasoning
Throw some olive oil in a pan and saute the bag of veggies with the garlic and ginger for a bit.. until they are about at the point where you want to eat them.
Cook the ramen noodles in some water. Throw away the ramen seasoning.
Add the cooked ground breakfast sausage, soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce. Mix it all together.
Add the ramen noodles (with the water) to the veggie mix.
Do the required taste test and add things like salt and pepper and whatever else your heart desires.
