This crispy ramen takes 5 minutes to cook and is very tasty. All you need is some cooking oil spray, some packet ramen, and seasoning. You will also need a bag (or the one the ramen came in), and an air fryer.

Step 1: Split the Ramen

I am using Maruchan instant packet ramen. However, by default it is a bit thick. You will need to split it into the two slices that are about 1 cm thick.

Step 2: Spray the Ramen

Spray the ramen with cooking oil on each side to your own preference.

Step 3: Air Fry the Ramen.

Air fry the ramen at 375F for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Step 4: (Optional)Season

Season the ramen with, really anything. French fry seasoning or taco seasoning works well.

Left: Raw

Center: Fried

RIght: Seasoned with taco seasoning.

Step 5: (Optional)Crush

Crush the ramen by putting it into a bag and crush it. Either press it or hit it repeatedly with something heavy or your hand.

    After you fry it, you can use the flsvor pack to season it. I wouldn't recommend it as the flavor packet doesn't taste that good when eaten dry like that.

    First, that's not ramen, those are noodles. And second, how is this thing featured?

    While the cheap packaged "food" from the Maruchan company may not be authentic traditional ramen, If you say ramen to most people not from a region where authentic ramen is a popular food, they will most likely think of the little package of noodles so popular with college students.

    As far as why it is featured; it is well written, easy to understand, and the pictures are original and good quality.

    I have used lo mein noodles before as "crunchy bits" in a salad, but never knew you could fry the ramen noodles and break them up for the same purpose. I am excited to try this.
