Elevating Ramen Noodles: A Twist on a Classic Packaged Comfort Food

A humble bowl of ramen noodles has always held a special place in my heart. My college days were filled with jazzed-up bowls of ramen mixed with grilled chicken and frozen veggies. So, naturally, this evolved into a more “sophisticated” version: Shrimp and Broccoli with Ramen!

What To Put In Homemade Ramen Noodles

Toppings for ramen noodles are one of my fave things, you guys. It started back in college. I would legit grill some chicken or steak, slice it up, and toss it with 3-minute ramen noodles + frozen stir-fry veggies. The best idea, Here are some more ideas and tips for your best homemade ramen!

  • Protein: Add in other proteins like diced chicken, beef, tofu, or even a soft-boiled egg to give your ramen a hearty boost.
  • Veggies: Toss in various vegetables like spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, or corn to add flavor.
  • Spice It Up: Add heat with chili oil, sriracha, or crushed red pepper flakes for a spicy twist.
  • Umami Boost: Add a spoonful of miso paste or a dash of fish sauce to give your broth a deep, umami flavor.
  • Aromatics: Garlic adds a lovely flavor to the shrimp, but don’t stop there. You can add ginger, scallions, or lemongrass to the broth for more depth of flavor.
  • Gourmet Garnishes: Top your ramen with sliced green onions, sesame seeds, or a sprinkle of furikake (a Japanese seasoning blend) for added texture and taste.

Storing Leftovers

  • Keep cooked ramen in a sealed container, and it’ll stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days, or you can freeze it for up to 3 months. It reheats nicely from frozen, too!

  3. This was better than I thought it would be. I added Baby Bella mushrooms and sautรฉed them with the shrimp. It was a good addition to the recipe.

  4. I made this tonight & it was delicious! I used 1/2 everything as I only made it for me. I sauteed the shrimp in olive & sesame oil.

      1. I just made this tonight and it was sooo good!! My boyfriend gobbled up two bowls of it! Lol. I added yellow, red, and orange sweet peppers, half of a green bell pepper, baby carrots, and a purple onion instead because its all we had, but was still so flavorful! Its hard to believe that all it is is garlic and butter. Finally I have a use for those abandoned ramen noodles. Yum, yum, yum!

  6. Everyone enjoyed this meal! Added some bite size pieces of chicken breast, carrots, diced sweet peppers, and broccoli slaw instead of broccoli florets! Have to sneak the, in at my house for the picky eaters! Thank you for an awesome recipe!
