GP Om Noms: Naruto Ninja Storm Ramen

Posted February 12, 2014 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in Features

I for one love fighting and action games. Especially ones that are adapted from popular anime and manga! One of my favorites in particular is Naruto! Anyone who is familiar with the popular series knows that the main character, Naruto, has an immense love for ramen, a popular Japanese noodle soup. Many are familiar with the popular little ramen packages that you can get from your local grocery store for about 12 cents a pack. In the video games that have spawned from the anime series, Naruto uses ramen as a health source, to refill his health when it begins to run low. 

In this latest installment of GP Om Noms, I will teach you how to make the ramen you see in the Naruto video games I’ll teach you two ways: The first, how to make it using the prepackaged ramen from your local grocery store, and second, how to make it more authentic, using items you would find at an Asian market or World Market. Let’s start off with the easy version, using prepackaged ramen.Things you’ll need:

  • Pack of ramen (any flavor you prefer. Pork is Naruto’s favorite)
  • 1 egg, soft-boiled
  • Cubed ham (works nicely with the pork ramen)
  • Green onions, chopped (Optional)
  • 1 strip of nori, or seaweed (what is typically used for sushi, also optional)

First thing you’ll want to do is make that soft-boiled egg. Bring some salted water up to a boil, then put your egg in and cover the pot, reducing it to low. Set a timer for 6-7 minutes. 6-7 minutes will give you a slightly soft, runny yolk. If a runny yolk isn’t for you, boil 9-10 minutes fro a hard-boiled egg. Once the timer goes off, quickly run you egg under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set your egg aside. Next  you’ll want to put some water in a medium pot and bring it to a boil. Essentially you are going to follow the directions on the ramen package. Once your ramen is done, transfer to a bowl of your choice. Slice your boiled egg in half, and sit on top of the noodles, adding your cubed ham alongside it. Take you nori strip, and stick it in on the side of the bowl. Garnish with green onions (or scallions) and voila! You have a nice, hearty authentic looking bowl of Naruto Ninja Storm Ramen!

Now, let’s say you want to challenge yourself a bit more, take on an “S-Ranked Mission” of sorts…then you will want to do this next recipe. You can still use the prepacked ramen from the store, but only for the noodles, ditch that sodium-laden spice packet. At some local stores on the Asian isle, you can find miso packets. If not, try and find some at an Asian market or World market.

This time around, you will be using the miso packet of your choice to flavor your ramen. When boiling the water, put in your miso and a broth cube of your choosing, just to add a little more flavor. After that throw in your noodles, and cook them till tender, and proceed just as we did in the last one.

Now, the possibilities are endless with this dish. Say you don’t want to use cubed ham. You can use sliced chicken, or maybe some teriyaki beef strips? Or crab, or shrimp if you like seafood. If you want more veggies, you can even add in some shredded cabbage and carrots. You can pretty much tailor this recipe to be whatever you envision your perfect bowl of ramen to be. So set free your inner ninja, and make you some Naruto Ninja Storm ramen, a nice spin on an inexpensive noodle meal.
