Who Knew Homemade Ramen Was So Easy?

Homemade Traditional Ramen is a big thing these days and I’ve jumped headfirst into the delicious abyss. And it is good. Oh so good. Noodles in a tasty broth are my jam. If you’re looking for an authentic recipe for ramen, this isn’t it. BUT, if you’re looking for a yummy soup that your kids will eat, this is it!! I’ve added lots of veggies and mushrooms to beef it up and make up for the fact that there is no meat in this recipe.

How to Make Homemade Ramen

Ramen isn’t as hard as it looks to make. You can get show stopping fabulous results with just a bit of effort. For full recipe details and ingredients see the recipe card down below! Here is what you can expect when making this recipe.

Saute Onion + Carrot

In a large pot, heat olive oil. Sauté onion and carrot until onions are translucent.

Stir in garlic and mushrooms until fragrant.

Add Ramen Noodles, Flavoring Packets + Water

Add in ramen noodles, flavoring packets, and recommended amount of water according to package directions. Stir in enough chicken broth to create 8 cups of liquid in total. Bring to a boil.

Can I Use a Different Broth?

Yes! If you’re vegetarian or looking for vegan ramen options, simply replace this with vegetable broth. Beef and pork broth also go really well in this dish. I do recommend using a liquid broth over a powdered soup base for your vegan or vegetarian ramen. The flavor of liquid broth packs a stronger punch, in my opinion.

Add Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil + Chard

Stir in soy sauce tasting it as you go. Stir in sesame oil and chard.

Serve Ramen Hot with Garnishes

Once noodles are cooked, serve ramen hot and garnish with chopped green onion, radishes, boiled eggs, and black sesame seeds. (These veggies are optional, but really add to the umami of this dish!)

Storing Leftover Ramen

Unfortunately, ramen doesn’t keep well. This is because of the noodles soaking in the broth and becoming soggy.

If you want to enjoy this your ramen for a couple of days I would suggest boiling the noodles separately from the broth and veggies. That way the ramen noodles can be added to the warmed up broth whenever you’d like.

Make sure to cover and refrigerate and it should last up to 5 days!

Homemade Ramen FAQs

What is ramen?

Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish that typically consists of wheat noodles served in a flavorful broth, along with various toppings such as sliced pork, soft-boiled eggs, green onions, and seaweed.

Can I make ramen at home?

Absolutely! Homemade ramen is becoming increasingly popular, and you can recreate a delicious bowl of ramen in your own kitchen. Just follow my wonderful recipe for the easiest and most delicious homemade ramen!

What ingredients do I need to make ramen?

The basic ingredients for classic homemade ramen recipes include ramen noodles, broth (such as chicken, pork, or vegetable), various toppings (such as sliced meat, eggs, bok choy, spring onion, snow peas, shredded carrots, and nori or wakame seaweed), and seasonings (such as soy sauce, miso paste, and sesame oil).

Can I use pre-packaged ramen noodles?

While pre-packaged instant ramen noodles can be used as a quick alternative, they are typically lower in quality than fresh ramen noodles. If possible, try to find fresh ramen noodles from an Asian grocery store, or you can even make your own noodles from scratch.

How do I make the broth?

While I suggest using bouillon cubes for the quickest homemade ramen, you can also make your own broth. This process usually involves simmering chicken bones or pork bones for several hours to extract flavors. Check out my delicious broth recipe, which is super easy to make and will provide your ramen soup with tons of flavor!

Can I make vegetarian or vegan ramen?

Yes, you can make vegetarian or vegan ramen by using vegetable stock as a base and adding plant-based proteins like tofu or tempeh. You can also incorporate a variety of vegetables and mushrooms for flavor and texture.

Are there any alternative noodle options?

While traditional ramen uses wheat noodles, you can experiment with different types of noodles, such as udon, soba, or egg noodles, if you prefer or have dietary restrictions. Keep in mind that the texture and flavor may vary.

How do I achieve the perfect soft-boiled egg topping?

Soft-boiled eggs are a common topping in ramen. To achieve the desired texture, bring a pot of water to a boil, gently lower the eggs into the boiling water, and cook them for about 6-7 minutes. Then, transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process and cool them down quickly.

Can I customize the toppings and seasonings?

Absolutely! Ramen is highly customizable, and you can add or modify toppings and seasonings based on your preferences. Feel free to experiment and add optional toppings like bamboo shoots, corn, bean sprouts, fresh herbs, or chili oil to enhance the flavor.

How should I serve and eat ramen?

Serve ramen hot in a large bowl. Use chopsticks to pick up the noodles and toppings, and use a spoon to sip the broth. Feel free to slurp the noodles, as it is considered a sign of enjoyment in Japanese culture.
