Watching this video of David Chang cooking an omelet flavored with the contents of a ramen seasoning packet brought me back to my high school days. When my parents weren’t home, I’d fend for myself by making every teenager’s dirt-cheap home-cooked meal of choice: A package of dried instant ramen noodles, quickly reconstituted in scalding-hot MSG water. Other times, I’d skip the cooking process altogether, and just chomp on crumbly chunks of dried ramen sprinkled with mystery seasoning.
Good thing I’ve grown up. These days, when I make dinner for one, I just origami up some fresh fish, citrus, and fragrant aromatics in parchment paper, and pop it all in the oven.
A few minutes later, out comes a deliciously satisfying Whole30-friendly single-serving dinner that’s approximately seven gazillion times better (and better for you!) than flaccid gluten strings boiled in chemicals.
