Stretching meals

July 13, 2010 —

I’ve spent so much money on spices without finding a go-to combination of spice so I’ve resulted to another ultimate lazy meal. You think you get a good meal out of ramen noodles? Try making it into TWO meals.

What I’ve done is saving the broth and cooking up another batch of noodles (try egg noodles or mung bean noodles to change it up – the Double Dragon grocery store on 2nd Ave. has a wide selection of noodles) making it meal #2. I really don’t drink the broth and just need it to soak some of the flavor for the noodles, so I do this a lot and it saves me so much time. Give it a kick with some frozen veggies and left-over meat.

Any pointers on stretching a meal?
