Initially, I was craving jjajangmyeon. I wanted to eat something savoury and noodle based. ; since I can't find instant jjajangmyeon that I can experiment on, I bought instant yakisoba.
Instant yakisoba wasn't available in the convenience store ten years ago, at least as far as I remember. But these days, a small section is selling instant yakisoba, Japanese ramen, and Korean ramen. What I like about these instant ramen is the natrium content that is relatively lower than Indomie or other Indonesian noodle products.
This instant yakisoba I bought has a takoyaki flavour. When I opened it, there are only two seasoning packets. One is powdered seasoning, and the other is oil seasoning. So, since that is lacking in protein and vegetables, I decided to give it a makeover. On the side, I also cook clear tofu soup with seaweed to accompany this instant gourmet yakisoba.
Now, let me show you how to make a gourmet yakisoba!
Chopped pok choi
Sesame seed oil
Chicken nugget (optional)
Cook the instant yakisoba based on the instruction in the packet.
Turn on the stove and saute the shredded carrot using sesame seed oil in low heat.
Drain the yakisoba and place them inside the stove alongside the carrot. Stir them together for 3 minutes.
Pour the powdered flavouring into the mixture. Stir it well.
Serve while it is hot with seaweed and also chicken nugget.
Another thing you can add is clear tofu soup with seaweed. This recipe is also simple to make and also low-cost.
Chopped leeks, the lower part
2ml sesame oil
Dice the tofu.
Boil 200ml water.
Add chopped leek, only the white part. You can add the green part at the end.
Give salt and also sesame oil.
Add tofu and let it cook.
Then add the seaweed into the mixture.
Serve it on a tray, and you have a gourmet experience but inexpensive. This recipe is also a good meal in the bear market. Instead of just eating the same ramen all day, add some vegetables to it. You'll probably be a bit healthier. When you make gains later, you can order actual gourmet food.
