Now we present our staff 5 favorite quick ramen noodle meal ideas:

1. Creamy Mayo Style Ramen

Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise is not like regular US mayonnaise as it starts with Japanese egg yolks to get its base. Japanese mayonnaise has a much smoother custard-like texture. This ramen hack is so yummy and smooth it will make you love ramen in a whole new way!

How To Make (takes 5min)

  • Start with Shoyu or Shio Authentic ramen for this.
  • Cook the ramen noodles for 1:30 minutes but leave out the soup packet
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the soup packet, about 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic, a healthy squirt of Japanese mayo, and an egg.
  • Once the noodles are done, pour the boiling water from the pot into the serving bowl with the soup mix, egg, and mayo paste.
  • Stir for about a minute to get all the flavors melded.
  • Top with chopped scallions or some furikake if you like. Enjoy!

2. Fast & Easy Vegetarian Dan Dan Noodles

Dan Dan the only way we can.

DanDan noodles typically have some protein as part of the recipe, but, being we like to eat light during the hot summer months this works! Use our Umami Shoyu ramen kit to make this tasty and fresh.

What you need:

  • 1pk Kaedama noodles
  • Chopped green onions
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon Hoisin Sauce
  • Shredded cucumber
  • 4 tablespoons of sesame oil

How to make:

  • Cook noodles 1:30min, drain all but 3 tablespoons of water
  • In a separate pot, heat up the oil.
  • Use a heatproof bowl and add in the rest of the ingredients (but not the cucumber)
  • Add oil slowly to a heatproof bowl while stirring the ingredients
  • Add noodles and keep stirring until everything is mixed up well.
  • Top with cucumber, additional sesame seeds, or cilantro if you prefer.

3. Quick Pad Thai

Pad thai typically includes some sort of protein (like chicken or tofu). Our version is much easier and quicker and takes about 4 minutes. To get the chicken flavor, use our Authentic Shio Ramen kit.

Awww…(you know.)

How to Make

Microwave for 1:30-2:00 a mixture of:

  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4-1/3 cup coconut milk
  • pinch of fresh minced ginger
  • Sriracha
  • and the spice packet

Cook the noodles for 1:30. While the noodles are cooking, make the microwaved sauce. Stir 1/2 way through cooking in the microwave. Once the noodles are done, add the mixture to the noodles. Top with cilantro and some crushed peanuts. Enjoy!

4. Red Curry Noodles

5. Pan Fried Noodles (stirfry)

Get the pan or wok out for a single dish that is easy to make using our Shio Ramen kit. We have to admit that making a late-night stirfry is the quickest way to clear the hunger pangs. In fact, we have a set of small pans in the test kitchen for single-serve meals.

How to Make

  • Cook the noodles for 1:00 and drain water, set aside.
  • Heat up a small skillet and add 4 tablespoons of sesame oil (or canola oil).
