Breathing new life and happiness into pantry staple dishes has certainly been interesting over the last two months. Just like all of you, I’ve been taking simple things like canned beans, dried pasta, and ramen noodles and trying to make them into interesting meals as we’ve stretched our grocery store runs (I used to go to the store 3-4 times a week!). 

I’ve also kept lots of eggs on hand because they are so versatile and nutritious, helping me to add a creamy, nutritious, and delicious layer to just about any pantry staple dish. If you have yet to try eggs from Happy Egg, this recipe may convince you otherwise.

Whipping up easy, dishes (like today’s ramen noodles!) that you can make alongside me on insta stories has brought me so. much. happiness.

The moment people started telling me that watching me cook in their little phone screens was ‘therapeutic’, I knew I had something good going. 

One of my favorite ways to connect with you guys and make my kitchen a happier place has been with music! Creating a little album for each recipe story has kept things so fun and it turns out I have really similar music taste with a ton of you #bestcommunityever!

Why this garlic butter ramen noodle stir fry is the pantry staple you need in your life! 

  • The ramen noodles! I think it’s safe to say everyone’s got a package or two of ramen lying in their pantry, and switching it up from normal soup, to a stir fry is a GAME CHANGER. Be sure to cook your noodles super al dente so they don’t get mushy in the stir fry!
  • Kale yes! I used kale for a little added nutrition and texture, but you can use any veggie (fresh or frozen) you’ve got. Mushrooms, spinach, or bok choy also work great. 
  • The egg yolk. Whether you do a raw egg yolk right in the center of your noodles or fry up a crispy egg, it’s a must. The egg added richness and heartiness to this ramen stir fry.

Ramen Noodle Stir Fry with Egg 

The best part about this garlic butter ramen noodle stir fry is busting open the golden egg yolk on top. When the egg yolk is cracked it releases what I call ‘golden flavor’ making these noodles, rich, creamy, and buttery. 

When it comes to having eggs as the star of a meal, I love using Happy Egg Co Free Range eggs. These yolks could not be more rich and golden. Happy Eggs are large brown eggs that come from hens that roam on over 8 acres of pasture outside, which is so important considering most eggs at the grocery store come from hens that never even go outside!

This Ramen Noodle Stir fry is Vegetarian 

This ramen noodle stir fry is vegetarian! Of course, you could add chicken, salmon, or maybe top it off with broccoli beef but my personal favorite is just with a fried egg or an egg yolk for an easy, vegetarian meal.
