Dive into the world of homemade ramen with these easy and delicious ramen recipes that will also save you time in the kitchen. Whether you crave the salty and savory kick of miso, the soul-soothing warmth of chicken broth, or the umami-packed goodness of shoyu, our roundup has it all. From vegetarian delights to seafood and meat options, there’s a bowl of ramen for every palate and preference.
You don’t need a culinary degree to create restaurant-worthy ramen. And not every ramen broth needs to simmer for hours or days to achieve depth of flavor. A good bowl of ramen can be achieved in your own kitchen with simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry (if you cook a lot of Japanese food).
I make my own ramen all the time because it’s easy, healthier than a bowl of instant noodles, and much cheaper than my local ramen joint.
I like that I get to choose exactly what goes into my bowl of noodles. One of the joys of homemade ramen is the freedom to customize everything – from the type of noodles, the flavor and intensity of the broth, to only using the toppings you like.
Some of the ramen recipes you will find throughout this roundup have been inspired by flavors I’ve tasted in Japan, while others, like the ramen noodle coleslaw, were simply created out of my love for ramen noodles.
