Ramen Noodle Recipes

My daughter is a big fan of Ramen Noodles, especially the chicken flavor kind. She’s fine with eating them just plain, but I like to play with it and come up with some yummy variations. We’ve tried all sorts of things and I know there are tons of ramen noodle recipes out there.

Here are some of our favorites:

Ramen Egg Drop Soup

Fix Ramen Noodles according to package direction making them rather soupy. Right before they are done, scramble up one egg in a small cup along with a little soy sauce. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the hot noodles while stirring them in one direction. The addition of the egg makes this a filling snack or light lunch and adds quite a bit of protein.

Creamy Asian Noodles

I first heard about this from my friend Nicole and to be honest I was reluctant to try it…. once I did, we were hooked and make these as an after-school snack all the time. Fix a packet of ramen noodles according to package directions. Go easy on the water. Right before you take it off the stove, add a teaspoon of peanut butter to the mixture.

It’s great just like that, but even better if you throw in some leftover veggies, chopped peanuts or even leftover chicken. By adding chicken, veggies and peanuts, this becomes a full meal perfect for quick and easy dinner.

Ramen Beef Skillet

This makes enough to feed a crowd.

  • 2 packages of Ramen Noodles
  • 2 cans of tomatoes
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 lb ground beef

Brown the beef in a soup or stew pot and drain off any excess fat. Add the tomatoes, corn, and noodles. Bring to boil and add the seasoning package. Cover, stirring occasionally. Simmer until most of the tomato sauce is evaporated and the noodles are soft (about 5 minutes).

    I frequently make stir fry dinners with leftover chicken or steak or a little of each and then add a package of cooked Ramen noodles, drained. I add my own seasoning including a few shakes of soy sauce, a Tbs of Hoisin sauce and a few shakes of sesame oil. Toss in some sesame seeds if desired. The noodles really stretch the stir fry.

    I make Fake Peanut Sauce and put in on ramen all the time! It’s my comfort food! Drain ramen after cooking but save a bit of cooking water. Throw on (amounts are kind of up to you) peanut butter, Sriracha, soy sauce, and garlic. (Add ginger or five-spice powder, too, if you have it.) Stir, and thin it with the cooking water if need be. It’s SO good!

  3. TRISH says

    Great ideas for those inexpensive little packages of noodles. I buy them and use them for a main or side dish where I can discard the spice packet. Those spice packets contain way too much sodium for adults and children when prepared according to package directions. Does anybody know if the (Ramen or Nissin) companies make a low sodium or light noodle product? Maybe they would respond to a lot of consumer pressure and make their product a little more healthy. Any opinions out there?
