I think the title for this post says it all.
Strange food mixes of cheap food you can find in supermarkets to create the flavor of other foods that tend to be much more pricey were a huge hit back a few years ago in Korea and Japan.
I've only tried on of these, but if you really think about the certain ingredients of these following ingredients, the taste perceptions actually do make sense.
It kind of resembles molecular gastronomy in my opinion, but easier!
I say this is a great way to have fun creating a variety of flavors without spending too much money buying different ingredients. 1. Ketchup + Ramen Noodles = Spaghetti (family recipe!)
I've mentioned in a previous post that my father
has had a strange habit of trying out different flavors ever since I was young.
This includes having had upsetting moments like when he had mixed in his drinking yogurt into my orange juice
, but I must say that this recipe is a winner!Instructions:
a) Make ramen noodles in pot with less water than usual.
b) Add ketchup to ramen and broil to a thick consistency.
c) Eat when hot!2. Mango Juice + Milk = Banana Flavor
I haven't actually tried this one, but perhaps it sounds really
a) Add Mango Juice to Milk.3. Cucumbers + Honey = Melon
a) Cut cucumbers into small pieces.
b) Add A LOT of honey.
4. Orange Juice + White Gatorade = Mango Juice
a) Add Orange Juice to White Gatorade or other sports drink equivalent. (Substitute: vitamin water maybe?)
b) Drink cold!5. Coke + White Gatorade = Ice Tea
a) Add Coke to White Gatorade or other sports drink equivalent.
b) Same as Mango Juice equation.6. Honey-coated Cracker + Lighter = Korean BBQ
So this one requires a bit of explanation...
There is a specific cracker in Korea called, "Mat-Dong-San," shown in the picture above. You can find this in a nearby Hmart or Korean market, I swear. Now follow the next instructions. I don't think it's unhealthy since this was shown in an informative tv show!Instructions:
a) Take one end of cracker in mouth.
b) Light the other end of the cracker and breathe in, and you'll take Korean BBQ!
7. Tofu + Yogurt = Cheesecake
a) Cut tofu in the shape of a piece of cake.
b) Cover the tofu with plain yogurt.
c) Serve with a side of blueberry or raspberry sauce.
8. Yellow Radish Pickle + Milk = Corn Pottage
a) cut yellow radish pickles into small bit sizes
b) Heat milk and add pieces into the milk.
c) Season and serve hot!So what are your thoughts on these food equations? Do you think you want to try them out?
