Here is what I do. Get some frozen veggies and start boiling them in a pot.

take the ramen and crush it in hte bag into smaller chunks.

put the noodles in a large cup, then dump the seasoning on them in a pile.

add some butter

once veggies are boiling, dump in water to cover noodles, spoon out veggies to cover noodles and then add water to cover veggies and let stand 5-10 min until desired temperature.

Time for a bump. My local Chinese supermarket was selling these Japanese things today:

Chicken flavour, and massive too. With 3 packs of goodies: MSG Overdose, Dried Veg and Oil. Mmm oil.

After adding hot water a piece of magical mystery meat appeared:

Nice long noodles:

And finished:

Well that was one big meal and it filled me up. More like bucket ramen than a cup. Even though its Japanese they seem to be available from import places both here in the UK and the US. So if you see one, go buy it.

Well, I know we get these Ramen products that make it look like you're having an actual meal; on the package they include meat and vegetables and make it look almost like a pasta.

When you open it up, it is just a block of normal ramen in a microwavable tray.

Just bought 20 packs of ramen made in Singapore for 8 pence a pack. Complete with all the salt, msg and artificial flavours you could ever wish for.

Huge bump, but is it possible to buy dry ramen bricks from a bulk store or a similar shop? Like, if say you were completely broke and wanted to avoid the individual packages but wanted to make your own instead...

My favorite recipe lately is chili lime. Stir-fry all the veggies with chili, garlic (and sometimes a little basil), throw in the noodles, and squeeze half a lime over it. Add a little bit of soy sauce, but not much.
I basically want to do something like that, though I doubt I will use the veggies every time. I am a student who is on a limited income after all. I simply can't justify the relatively high cost of noodle cups/packets when a portion of ramen five to 10 times larger than the packaged ramen would probably cost the same if it were bough in bulk.

Any ideas?

I think they probably only sell ramen in packages/bowls, which is something I don't really want, since it's so wasteful, and a pinch of chili powder, some garlic, onions, lime and oil will make a much better and healthier addition to the noodles. Besides you need a membership for Sams club, something most college students around here can't afford.

At Sams Club/BJs/Costco they sell ramen packets for between 4 and 4.50 for a 48 pack. I don't see how that could possibly be wasteful.

I don't mean in terms of money. 48 wrappers plus 48 flavour packs. 96 pieces of plastic packaging to throw out. That's not wasteful?

The noodles in Ramen are packed with so many preservatives you may as well just eat stringed Styrofoam. Just buy a box of good noodles or even make your own and realize you've been missing out on 14 times better food all these years.

Me, I just drive a minute down the road and pay 150 yen for fresh made from scratch Ramen.

Lately I've been eating the Hot & Spicy Chicken Picante Maruchan noodles. I usually put the brink in a pan, fill the water just above it, add corn and peas, then add a ton of pepper and tobasco sauce. I then boil it so everything absorbs the the spices and then mix the the pack and eat. It is quite good, and usually really spicy. I'm generally more of a fan of curry type spicy food, but I can't seem the find the curry chicken packets anywhere so this has to do.

I like curry style food too. Do you put the flavour packet in or not?

Yeah, since it has a bunch of red pepper pieces in it and adds extra zing. I'd probably not put it in if we had any in th house.
