About this Leftover Noodle Bowl

By: Spencer Bomboir

Sometimes cooking supper can feel like an episode of chopped – rummaging through the fridge looking for ingredients to make a meal out of. Luckily, this meal can be made with some leftover vegetables (or canned even), some sort of meat out of the freezer, and a couple packs of ramen noodles. 


  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 2 Packs Ramen
  • Broccoli
  • Red Pepper
  • Carrot
  • Mushroom (1 can)
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • 2 Tbs Soy Sauce
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Ginger Powder
  • Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tbs Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbs Black Bean Sauce
  • 1 Tbs Hoisen Sauce
  • 1 Tbs Sesame Oil
  • 3 Tbs Peanut Butter

This is just the recipe I used to make this meal – however the chicken can be swapped for any any meat, and the veggies can be anything you have laying around.
