Sometimes I’m stuck in class with the dilemma of deciding what’s for lunch. I have two issues: one, I’m too hungry to wait for my food to be delivered via Door Dash or Uber Eats, and two, making something requires some prepping and cleaning that can also be time consuming. Today I was feeling nostalgic of my college days, and I remembered my quick and easy avocado ramen I used to make for lunch. So I thought why not share it with you all? If you love saving money, carbs, and avocado then this recipe is for you! ( I mean, who doesn’t?!)
Things you will need: Bowl, fork, half an avocado, garlic salt, pinch of salt, teaspoon of olive oil, grape tomatoes, chicken breast (optional), Parmesan cheese (optional), ramen noodles, (I used Maruchan), and lime.
Let’s begin: first, boil the ramen noodles so that they are semi soft. You don’t want them to become too mushy when you mix in the avocado sauce.
Then cut your avocado in half and scoop it into a bowl, add a teaspoon of olive oil, garlic salt, and a pinch of salt.
With your fork, whisk and mash up the ingredients together. Add the garlic salt to taste as needed.
After everything is mixed together, add the cooked and drained ramen. Do not use any seasoning that came with the noodles.
To top off the ramen, halve the grape tomatoes and sprinkle them on top of the ramen. Add any additions you’d like, for example I added some cooked chicken breast that I had from a previous meal. You can also add Parmesan cheese or any shredded cheese of your choice!
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy recipe, and please tag and share your pics with me via Instagram, email, or comment below! I love when you guys get creative and add your own take on it! Buon Appetito!
