Easy Ramen Recipe | Veg & Non-Veg

Anyone who knows me is well aware that I am a lover of noodles… any form of noodle dish is my go-to! One of my favourite recipes I enjoy making time and time again is my ramen recipe. It is one of those dishes that works for all the family and is great all year round. I also think it fills you up the perfect amount and leaves you feeling full but without feeling heavy and like you need a nap.

I'll hold my hands up and say that it isn't super healthy but it can definitely be chopped and changed so the recipe is more stripped down and healthy. I just like how adaptable the recipe is, it can be veggie or non-veg and can be served with a variety of sides – Chinese-style chips, spring rolls, prawn toast or prawn crackers. Anyway, here is the recipe so you can recreate it too.

Serves | 2 people

Prep time | 15 mins

Cook time | 30 mins


For the ramen:
2 noodle nests
1 vegetable stock cube, diluted in some water.
Carrots, chopped
Mangetout, chopped
Baby corn, sliced in half
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, grated
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh ginger, grated (just less than 1 inch)

To garnish:
Sesame seeds, toasted
Spring onions, chopped
Coriander, chopped
Chilli powder and flakes, as needed
Boiled eggs, sliced

Optional extras // chicken, prawns or tofu. 


1. Prep your veg, chop the ginger and garlic and boil eggs.

2. In a large pan add 1 tbsp of oil followed by the garlic and ginger and let them brown slightly.

3. Then add the soy sauce and stock water. I measure the water by the bowls I'd be eating in, so add 1 for each person and a little extra as the water evaporates.

4. After a few minutes add the veggies so they can boil through. If I was adding meat, I'd cook it separately and add it in at this point too.

5. Season with salt, pepper and chilli powder as needed.

6. When the veg is almost done pop the noodle nests in so they can boil too.

7. When complete, dish up in a bowl with some soup and noodles and top with toasted sesame seeds, spring onions, coriander, sliced boiled egg and chilli flakes. It is now ready to serve!

Enjoy and do let me know how you get on!
