Easy Homemade Ramen

Thom Hackett

Servings: 4



The easiest ramen you will ever make in less than 30 min from start to finish. And it's so much tastier (and healthier) than the store-bought version!



1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
4 cups chicken broth
4 ounces shiitake mushrooms
1 tablespoon soy sauce, or more, to taste
3 (5.6-ounce) packages refrigerated Yaki-Soba, seasoning sauce packets discarded*
3 cups baby spinach
1 carrot, grated
2 tablespoons chopped chives

Cooking Method

1.       Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.

2.       Whisk in chicken broth, mushrooms, soy sauce and 3 cups water.

3.       Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until mushrooms have softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in Yaki-Soba until loosened and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes.

4.       Stir in spinach, carrot and chives until the spinach begins to wilt, about 2 minutes.

5.       Serve immediately.


*Yaki-Soba is ramen-style noodles and can be found in the refrigerated aisle of your local grocery store.
