Low Budget

Ray’s Ramen Soup

Just got back from work and got leave again in 40 minutes to catch the bus. To add up, I am hungry! So what to eat when I am in a hurry? Ramen soup! Usually, when I am in a hurry or got back from a long day of school, I cook ramen soup. Also, a nice dish for people who are on a budget. This dish is great for people with a big eating habbit. You can make out more meals from this dish.


  • 1 egg of the six pack (€0.99)
  • 4 bacon stripes (€1.49)
  • 1 package instant noodle union (€0.50)
  • 1 package vegetables mix for soup (€1.04)

Total: €4.02



Step 1

Time to make the bacon crispy! Heat up the pan to medium fire and add 2-3 tea spoon oil. When the pan gets warm, place the bacon in the pan.

Bake each side for 3-4 minutes till crispy brown.


Next, put them on a plate with kitchen paper to drain the oil of the bacon to keep them crispy.


Step 2

Fill two pans with water, one ¾ of the pan and the other 1/3 of the pan, and wait till the water boils. One pan will be used to cook the ramen and other to poach the egg. Put in the pan, the one that will be used to cook the ramen, the small powder packages that comes with the instant noodle package.

Next, add the noodle and the heat to low. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes. Afterwards take out the noodles of the pan and put them in a bowl.


Put the pan back on fire and add a handful full of vegetables mix to cook on low fire.

Step 3

Poached egg. Sometimes I have a perfect poached egg and sometimes I got a flop… Anyways, wait till the water is boiled.

Turn off the fire, put the egg in a small bowl, use chopsticks or any other cooking tools to spin the water like a tornado. This creates a vortex so that the egg keeps it together. When you get the vortex, pour the egg into the pan and stop spinning.


Let it cook for 2-3 minutes and take it out on put it in on top of the noodles.

Step 4

Let’s plate! Pour the pan with the mixed vegetables into the noodle bowl. Add the crispy bacon on top.


It’s time for me to run, bon appetit!
