If you’ve ever had Ramen for dinner and wished you could have a bowl of it for dessert, we’ve got you covered.
The Japanese noodle is a savory staple in Japanese culture, but blend it with a bit of Latin American inspiration, and you’ve got yourself Ramen con Leche.
Inspired by Arroz con Leche, the sweet rice pudding often made in Spanish-speaking countries, Ramen con Leche adds a Japanese twist to the cinnamon-filled dessert.
If your mouth watered at the thought of these two dishes together, our buddy Hector Gomez sweet and simple recipe you can try at home:
- 4 cups of water
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 instant ramen packets
- 3 cups of milk
- 1 cup of evaporated milk
- 1 cup of sugar
- Pour the 4 cups of water and 2 cinnamon sticks into a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
- Toss in the 2 packets of ramen, as the water boils and let it cook for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring.
- After the noodles are cooked, pour in the cup of evaporated milk, 3 cups of milk and the cup of sugar, letting it cook for five minutes.
- (Optional) Sprinkle cinnamon over top and enjoy.
