Ramen Recipes

Hello :)

I’m looking for some different ways to prepare ramen noodles. Specifically, I’m interested in soy and chili flavored recipes.

If anyone has a personal favorite ramen recipe, or any tips on changing up the typical bowl of noodles, please share!

I’m writing specific articles for an internet media group, using the seasoning packets is out of the question in this case.

Any and all replies are appreciated :)

  1. This show Cooking with Dog is pretty informative. I used a packet for my seasoning, but made the egg the way she made it and added other toppings. If you get the raw noodle packs, it's pretty good :o) It's nothing like Top Ramen!

        The name of the show just makes me laugh! The first time I saw it, I didn't know the name of the show and kept thinking that dog is getting too close to the food and

    1. there are lots of threads on ramen right here on home cooking. Here a few that you might find interesting:

      1. Here's one of the favorites I've come up with. Makes a great side (I like it with Teriyaki-style salmon or lightly seared tuna steaks) or vegetarian main, or can easily be adapted with the addition of some cooked meat, chicken, or shrimp.


        1 small/medium zucchini
        1 medium carrot
        1 scallion
        1 package Ramen noodles (or 1-2 pkges. ramen soup mix – seasoning packet discarded)
        2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
        Aprox. 1 teaspoon (about 1”) peeled & grated fresh ginger
        Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
        Soy sauce to taste
        Vegetable oil
        Hot sesame oil (or regular, if desired)

        Wash & trim zucchini; trim & peel carrot. Cut both into small batons or matchsticks. Trim & slice scallion.

        Cook ramen noodles according to package directions & drain.

        In a medium/large skillet, heat a thin coating of vegetable oil & sauté squash & carrot until just barely tender. Add scallion, ginger, & garlic & stir a few times. Add drained noodles & combine gently. Add crushed red pepper flakes & soy sauce to taste & gently combine again. Serve with a drizzle of hot (or regular) sesame oil on top.

        1. I don't have a recipe, again I use packaged, but I'm sure that you could find one. I thought that you may be interested in Hiyashi Chuka which is basically a cold ramen dish with a salad on top:o)

          1. There is a cookbook called "101 Things To Do With Ramen Noodles"---I had a copy once---it is now on used hard copy or Kindle for about $5. Might be good for ideas.
