Ramen noodles are a Japanese dish made with wheat noodles. The noodles are eaten with a flavorful broth, to which meats and vegetables are often added. The preparation of fresh ramen noodles is considered an art in Japan and takes time and skill. Luckily, ramen noodles are available in an instant form for those who do not posses culinary skills; you can find the instant variety in most food stores. Preparation of ramen noodles is often done in a saucepan, but they can also be made using a microwave. Ramen noodles are typically supposed to be eaten along with the broth, but to eat ramen noodles dry without broth, add a small step to the cooking process.

Step 1

Open the bag of noodles and place them in a microwave-safe container. Remove the seasoning packet that comes in the bag. Pour in enough water to submerge the noodles.

Step 2

Cover the container with a lid and place it in the microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Step 3

Remove the noodles from the microwave with pot holders and stir with a fork. They should be soft and not crunchy. They should also be somewhat transparent. Pour any water remaining in the container down the sink. If the noodles are too coarse, leave the remaining water in the container and cook the noodles for another 30 seconds.

Step 4

Remove the noodles from the microwave and add the seasoning packet to the noodles. Mix the seasonings thoroughly into the noodles with a fork.
