Easy Meals Ftw

Cooking for a living, I rarely put much effort into cooking my own meals, but these are some fairly simplistic (and relatively inexpensive) meal ideas I've incorporated into my fast food and cereal diet.
1Hell [U.S.]

Souped-Up Ramen - It doesn't take much for the average instant ramen to become a delicious, hearty soup. Just cook and strain the noodles as you might normally do, but then add a stock or broth of your choosing with the provided sauce packet. Then throw in some other goodies. Stuff like miso paste, mushrooms, scallions, nori, radish, and poached egg all go wonderfully with the savory soup.

Korean BBQ Tacos - Grab a pack of microwavable, sauceless pulled pork and pop it in the microwave with some bulgogi (Korean BBQ) sauce. Combine that on some flour tortillas with kimchi or Asian coleslaw (slaw mix, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey) for a tasty Mexinese treat. You can also substitute the tortillas for rolls or buns and do sandwiches instead.

Farfalle with Yogurt and Zucchini - Cook farfalle the usual way, but throw in some grated zucchini strips right as the pasta is done cooking. Then strain everything and throw it in a sautee pan with some butter and Greek yogurt. Season with salt, pepper, and dried herbs and then toss some more with grated parmesan.

Soy-Ginger Tuna Sandwich - Take a can of your basic chunk albacore and chop it up. Mix that with some soy-ginger dressing and put it on toasted bread with bibb lettuce and tomato and avocado slices.
Bad Intentions

Shrooms and Eggs on Toast - Toast some baguette slices in the oven on one pan. On another, roast some whole, de-stemmed shiitakes tossed in soy sauce, extra virgin olive oil, and black pepper. Combine the two once they're ready to come out of the oven, and then top your open-faced sandwich with over easy or sunny side up eggs and some salty cheese shavings.

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup - Find a carton of decent-looking tomato soup and doctor it up with chopped fresh herbs (any combination of basil, thyme, and oregano) and any extra cream or half and half you might have lying around for your coffee. Serve that with a grilled cheese sandwich concocted from some nice, easy-melting cheese (smoked gouda, brie, etc.) and good bread (brioche or fresh sourdough).

Linguine Carbonara - Cook some diced bacon (or pancetta if possible) until brown but not crispy, and then drain almost all of the grease. Put it back on the heat with some chopped garlic (and chopped fresh herbs if possible) before adding a bit of red wine to the pan. Reduce the wine and add cooked linguine. Stir in a mixture of raw egg and shredded parmesan and cook for a few more minutes, adjusting seasonings.
8Massacre [N.Y.]
Killing Time

Tomato and Beet Salad - Cut up some fresh tomatoes (try finding some with some actual flavor) and pickled beets from a jar. Add them to a bowl with some mixed greens and toss with a little bit of the pickled beet juice, extra virgin olive oil, crumbled feta, walnuts, and salt and pepper.

Behind the Realms of Madness

Instant Fried Rice - Get some of those single-serving, microwavable Asian rice bowls and nuke them as the directions specify. Sautee some diced onion, carrots, freeze- dried peas, and egg in a bit of oil before adding in your microwaved rice. Vigorously chop and toss the rice for a while, and then add in some soy sauce, sriracha, and black pepper. Keep mixing and cooking until everything's evenly incorporated and perfectly seasoned.

Chicken and Rice Soup - Sautee some diced onion in a sauce pot, and then add some rice from a couple of the aforementioned instant rice bowls. Stir in some chicken stock/broth and simmer until the rice is cooked. Add some pulled chicken meat and season with salt, black pepper, and dried herbs
