20 Healthy Ramen Recipes That Are Delicious and Delightful

If “ramen” makes you think of cheap, MSG-laden bowls of blah, then you need to check out these healthy ramen recipes…

 

Most of our experiences with ramen have been on the level of cheap college eats.

You know…a hockey puck of dried noodles, a cup of hot water, and a packet of who knows what to make it at least palatable.

Well, it can be so much more than that, and these healthy ramen recipes are the ultimate introduction to gourmet noodling.

So if you’re ready to transform those packets of plain-Jain noodles into something special, you’ve come to the right place!

Enjoy!

 

Quick Homemade Ramen

This isn’t going to take as little time as making ramen according to the package instructions. You’ll need about 20 minutes of active cooking time, so prep the veggies beforehand to get dinner on the table fast. Luckily, there’s not much to do.

Grate some fresh ginger and garlic to start. The chopped kale and shredded carrots go in the pot last, so if you’re good at multi-tasking, take care of that prep work while the noodles cook in a mushroom broth.

Serves 6

Ingredients

1 Tbsp. sesame oil

3 tsp. grated fresh ginger

4 tsp. grated garlic

4 cups vegetable broth

4 cups water

1 oz. dried shiitake mushrooms

2 packages instant ramen (noodles only)

1/2 cup chopped scallions

2 cups chopped kale

1 cup shredded carrots

Sriracha to taste

Crunchy golden panko crumbs (optional topping)

Simple Homemade Chicken Ramen

When you want real chicken breast for dinner, you probably aren’t thinking ramen. But in this recipe, you can enjoy them both.

This is an extremely filling bowl of ramen with almost 900 calories per serving. Yet by using chicken, there’s less fat than when using lean pork. For even more protein, you can also soft-boil a couple whole eggs in the broth while the noodles cook.

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 boneless, skin-on chicken breasts (about 6 oz. each)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

2 tsp. sesame oil

2 tsp. minced fresh ginger

3 tsp. minced fresh garlic

3 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp. mirin

4 cups rich chicken stock

1 oz. dried shiitake mushrooms (or 1/2 cup fresh)

1 tsp. sea salt (or more to taste)

2 large eggs

1/2 cup scallion, sliced

2 packs (3 oz. each) dried ramen noodles

Curry-Roasted Acorn Squash Ramen Soup

healthy crockpot ramen recipePicture courtesy of Half-Baked Harvest

Pork is a staple in ramen, but often it’s sliced thin and cooked in the simmering liquid with the noodles.

In this recipe, a large pork roast is prepared with the soup in a slow cooker. That’s right – ramen is known as a quick convenience food, but you can also prepare the broth in your Crock-Pot and let the flavors meld all day.

Add the noodles right before dinnertime, and you’ll be rewarded for a little morning work in the kitchen. Although that preparation is contemporary, a traditional topping is recommended for this ramen: soft boiled or fried eggs.

Serves 6

Ingredients

Ramen Noodle Soup:

2 lbs. pork shoulder (or butt) roast

4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1/4–1/2 cup + 2–4 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup + 2–4 Tbsp. rice vinegar

2 Tbsp. fish sauce (optional)

2 Tbsp. Thai red curry paste

1 Tbsp. fresh ginger

1 Tbsp. sambal oelek (chili paste)

Juice of 1 lime

1 Tbsp. Chinese five spice

1 tsp. black pepper

2 Tbsp. sesame oil

1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 cups wild mushrooms, left whole (or sliced button mushrooms)

4 packs (3 oz. each) ramen noodles, seasonings discarded

4 soft-boiled or fried eggs (for serving)

Chopped carrots, sliced jalapenos, fresh cilantro, etc. (for serving)

Curry-Roasted Acorn Squash:

1 medium acorn squash, seeded and diced

2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted

1 Tbsp. curry powder

1 Tbsp. white miso paste

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Kimchi Ramen

Healthy Kimchi Ramen RecipePicture courtesy of Divine Healthy Food

 The popular noodle dish originated in Japan, but ramen has spread throughout Asia (and of course to the U.S. too).

What better way is there to add flare to Korean ramen than kimchi? The flavors are also lighter with white rice wine, bean sprouts, and smoked paprika. But depending on how heavy-handed you are with the red chili flakes, this bowl of ramen can get quite spicy!

Serves 2

Ingredients

3 cups water

1/2 cup well-fermented kimchi (plus more to garnish)

1/4 cup bean sprouts

1 Tbsp. mirin (white rice wine)

1 tsp. extra-light olive oil

1 tsp. sesame oil

1 tsp. rice vinegar

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce

1/2 tsp. Korean red chili flakes

1/4 tsp. Himalayan sea salt

Few sprinkles Szechuan peppercorns

Sweet & Sour Pork Noodles

This version of ramen ditches the packet completely.

You can still use the block of noodles if it’s more convenient, but it’s better to grab some thin egg noodles instead. They have similar macros, but egg noodles tend to contain more macronutrients like magnesium and niacin because they’re made from multiple ingredients, not just wheat flour.

Despite the name, egg noodles won’t boost protein. So if you want a more filling meal, double the roast pork in this recipe.

Serves 2

Ingredients

Ramen:

8 oz. egg noodles

1/4 lb. roast pork, sliced into thin pieces

2 Tbsp. oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

4 oz. (about 1 cup) bean sprouts, roots removed (optional)

1/2 Tbsp. oyster sauce

Salt to taste

Pork Marinade:

1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1/4 Tbsp. sesame oil

3 dashes white pepper

1 tsp. garlic chili sauce

Crock Pot Beef Curry with Ramen Noodles

Instant ramen noodles are ready in minutes, making it hard to trade in the easiness of eating them for time in the kitchen. But with this recipe, you can replace one convenience with another by using your slow cooker.

All you have to do is put beef and seasonings into the pot, and then cook on low all day. Before serving, add coconut milk, chili paste, and the ramen noodles. The final result tastes like a Thai curry rather than salty packaged ramen.

Serves 6

Ingredients

3 lbs. boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 2” cubes

3 Tbsp. fish sauce

2 Tbsp. brown sugar (or palm sugar)

3 Tbsp. red, panang, or massaman curry paste

1 Tsp. curry powder

1 Tbsp. ground turmeric

2 cups water

1 can (14 oz.) unsweetened coconut milk

3 Tbsp. ground fresh chili paste (optional)

3 package (3 oz. each) instant ramen noodles

Miso Ramen with Avocado & Tofu

This vegan ramen is like a California roll in a bowl. But this recipe comes from Takatoshi Nagara of NYC’s Mr. Taka Ramen, where you can order this – only overloaded with even more fresh produce like zucchini, mushroom, and leeks.

In fact, this vegetarian ramen can help you use up the best of the farmers’ market, which varies depending on what’s in season.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 large avocado (about 1/2 cup mashed)

1 tsp lemon juice (plus more to taste)

3/4 cup water

1/3 cup unsweetened soy milk

2 Tbsp. white miso

Salt to taste

2 tsp. canola oil

3 square slices firm tofu, blotted dry with a paper towel

Soy Sauce Noodles

When you just need a single-serving of ramen that’s almost as easy as stirring in the included packet, remember this recipe. These simple noodles hardly need any seasoning – just chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, and a touch of sugar.

You can enjoy this bowl of ramen as is, or blanch some veggies in a separate pot. That just means to boil them for about 5 minutes and then rinse the vegetables in cold water so that they don’t overcook.

And like most ramen dishes, you can also add an egg.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups chicken stock

1 Tbsp. soy sauce (or more to taste)

1/2 tsp. granulated sugar

1 Tbsp. chopped green onion

1/2 block ramen noodles, seasonings discarded

Easy Homemade Ramen

Upgrading from packaged ramen to the real deal can be intimidating. Now you have to mince garlic and are responsible for your own seasonings. But never fear! This easy ramen recipe is a great place to start when you’re feeling like a noob in the kitchen.

All you need is a big stockpot or Dutch oven. Heat up some oil in there, add ginger and garlic, and once you begin to smell them cook, whisk in the liquids. Add mushrooms to cook, and when they begin to soften, toss the noodles in the pot. The greens go in at the last minute to wilt.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 Tbsp. sesame oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger

4 cups chicken broth

4 oz. shiitake mushrooms

1 Tbsp. soy sauce (or more to taste)

3 packages (5.6 oz. each) Yaki-Soba noodles, seasoning packets discarded

Roasted Shrimp, Corn & Bacon Ramen

Instant ramen doesn’t have enough flavor for you? That’s because those seasoning packets usually contain little more than bouillon, salt, and MSG. But that’s not the only reason to upgrade.

This homemade ramen is more of a Sunday dinner than a weeknight meal since it takes a couple hours to cook, but the promise of shrimp and bacon noodle soup will motivate you to make it soon.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Dashi:

2 sheets (about 3/4 oz.) kombu (dried kelp), rinsed

1 1/2 oz. bonito flakes

Ramen Broth:

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

12 oz. large shrimp, peeled and deveined

4 scallions, green parts thinly sliced, white parts left whole

8 (about 3/4 oz.) dried shiitake mushrooms

1 Tbsp. mirin

2 tsp. seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay)

15 oz. fresh ramen noodles

4 oz. thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2” strips

2 ears corn, kernels removed (or 1 cup kernels)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Ramen Noodle Chicken Salad

healthy ramen salad recipePicture courtesy of Eating Well

Ramen noodles are usually cooked for a savory soup, and yet they can be used in other dishes too. Here they bulk out an Asian slaw with cabbage, carrots, and green onions. There’s also chicken breast to make this a whole meal.

This is an easy chicken salad to cook because the meat is boiled with fresh ginger and salt. The noodles are crumbled and toasted with almonds and sesame seeds – just don’t wander away from the oven in case they burn.

Then you just have to whisk together the dressing (or shake it in a jar), shred the chicken, and mix it all together in a big bowl.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 package (3 oz.) ramen noodles, seasonings discarded

1/4 cup slivered almonds

1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

1 1/2 tsp. canola oil

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat

3 slices fresh ginger (about 1/4” thick)

1/2 tsp. salt

3 Tbsp. orange juice

3 Tbsp. cider vinegar

5 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce

5 tsp. granulated sugar

3/4 tsp. toasted sesame oil

2 cups shredded green cabbage

1 medium carrot, shredded

Simple Miso Ramen

healthy shrimp ramen recipePicture courtesy of Cook Fearless

If there’s only one thing that stops you from eating instant ramen, it’s probably the lack of protein. You’d be better off eating stir-fry or just a sandwich stuffed with deli meat. But this from-scratch ramen is easy to make, and it includes four ounces of your favorite protein.

Use this ramen recipe to repurpose a leftover roast, or prepare a simple marinade to sauté some shrimp, chicken breast, or tofu to add to the bowl.

Serves 1

Ingredients

Protein:

Juice of 1/2 lime (or small lemon)

4 oz. shrimp (or another protein, like tofu or chicken breast)

Dash of coarse salt

Freshly ground peppercorns to taste

1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Broth:

1 package (3 oz.) ramen noodles

1 Tbsp. miso paste

2 tsp. soy sauce

2 green onions, chopped (optional)

1/4 cup fresh sprouts (optional)

2 Tbsp. chopped parsley, cilantro, or basil

1 large egg, hard-boiled or cracked into the ramen

Thai Coconut Surf & Turf Ramen

Cooking any surf and turf will require a little extra work in the kitchen. But you’ll be rewarded with two – or more! – kinds of protein in one glorious meal.

Since ramen is a staple of Japanese cuisine, it’s a wonder we don’t add seafood to it more often. This recipe uses four different kinds, plus enough high-quality beef to add flavor. It’s the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink of ramen with not just noodles but rice too.

In the end, you’ll be rewarded with an unbeatable high-protein ramen bowl.

Serves 6

Ingredients

1/2 lb. mussels, cleaned and rinsed

1/2 lb. scallops, muscle removed

1/2 lb. clams, cleaned and rinsed

Chashu Pork for Ramen

healthy pork ramen recipesPicture & recipe courtesy of Much Ado about Fooding

Real ramen isn’t about just the noodles but all the other awesome stuff in the soup. It’s worth taking the time to make an amazing pork roast to go with your homemade ramen.

Since it’ll get braised in the oven, the first step is to boil the liquid – a mix of soy sauce and sake with ginger, garlic, and onions. Add two pounds of pork shoulder or pork belly, and then it goes in a low-temp oven to cook for 3 to 4 hours. To make sure it marinates evenly, flip the roast over every hour.

Serves 8

Ingredients

2 lbs. boneless pork shoulder

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 cup mirin

1 cup sake

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 bulb garlic (about 12 cloves)

6 green onions, roughly chopped

3” fresh ginger, peeled and quartered

2 shallots, halved with skin on

Ramen Noodle Omelette

If you love to make instant ramen, there’s no reason to stop there. Those simple noodles can be turned into an awesome omelette rather than making soup.

By taking your favorite flavor of ramen to the next level with this omelette, you’ll be adding the nutrition of two eggs. You can also mix in cherry tomatoes, which add vitamin C, or customize this with other veggies.

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 pack chicken ramen noodles (or flavor of choice)

1 Tbsp. cooking oil

2 Tbsp. onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley

Spring Ramen Bowl with Snap Peas & Asparagus

healthy vegetable ramen recipePicture courtesy of New York Times / Andrew Scrivani

The best part of tossing out the seasoning packet that comes with ramen noodles is that you can replace it with the freshest veggies of the season.

That could mean a broth full of asparagus and snap peas, which are used in this recipe. Since spring veggies tend to have a delicious but mild flavor, you can add depth to this ramen with roasted seaweed (nori) and shiitake mushrooms.

Serves 4

Ingredients

8 oz. asparagus, preferably thick stalks

4 dried shiitake mushrooms

2 large garlic cloves, smashed

4 squares kombu (about 2” each), or 2 longer sticks

2 Tbsp. white (or yellow) miso paste

1 tsp. fine sea salt (or more to taste)

4 oz. sugar snap peas

8 oz. dried ramen noodles

2 squares toasted nori (about 2” each)

4 large hard-boiled eggs (optional)

Zest of 1 small lemon

Spicy Shoyu Ramen

To make spicy ramen, simply add more heat. And if you’d rather make a mild version of this recipe, look for a regular chili bean paste, like Sichuan douban jiang.

Can’t get ahold of either version? You can make your own according to your preferred spice level using broad beans (aka fava beans), fresh chilies, herbs, and oil. Wait at least two weeks for the mixture to dry, and then your homemade chili bean paste will last for a couple years.

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 packages (3 oz. each) ramen noodles, seasonings discarded

1 Tbsp. sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. chili bean paste

2 cups chicken stock

2 cups dashi stock

    Hi Mike, these look super delicious but I heard that the noodles (especially the instant ones) are to be avoided since they are simple carbs with high GI. This is why I try to avoid noodle dishes when I eat out and try to stick with rice/potato/etc

    Or can I still practice IIFYM with having these kind of dishes once in a while? Thanks.

    • Thanks!

      It might be an issue if ALL you ate was ramen noodles for your daily carbs but so long as you get the majority of your daily calories from nutritious, unprocessed foods (basically foods you cook and prepare yourself) you can work in some “treats” and be totally fine.

    Hey Mike, how would you respond on this study on HMB: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10606212 ?
    I’m about to start intermittent fasting and weightlifting in a fasting state so precerving muscle is going to be crucial.

    HMB looks very controversial. Do you think it’s a good idea supplementing both 3g of calcium HMB and 3g of L-Leucine before a workout to be on the safer side?

  • Danyal Naqvi

    Hi mike thanks for the article. on an unrelated note however im currently doing BLS and i get 6 reps on my first set and when i increase the weight i get 3 reps twice. any thoughts?

    • YW! In that case, stick with the lower weight until you can get 6 reps on all 3 sets. At that point, you should be able to go up in weight and get at least 4 reps on all 3 sets.
