Goddamn do I love instant noodles. I just finished up some spicy tofu soup that was made with an instant noodle base. Instant noodles catch a lot of heat for the huge amount of sodium that you get with the seasoning but I always just offset it by dumping in some soft tofu blocks (not browned, just boiled) and veggies. Take 2 packets of noodles but only use one packet of seasoning then add more flavor using spices or peppers. It’s cold around TikiMexico these days and soup is the staple of it’s citizens.
Still, it’s hard convincing people that the noodle soup is something I prefer and that is a damn tasty treat and not just an inferior good. I’m using inferior good to mean a product that increases in demand when consumer income drops. That is, you buy the shitty stuff when you’re broke. It’s something that I see as a viable ingredient especially when you take into account its shortcomings and overcome them. Soy for fiber, and veggies for your vitamin/mineral fix.
All I’m trying to say is if you don’t like it, shut the fuck up when I’m making my tasty snack.
