When I think of Ramen noodle recipes, I think of that time in college when I was still learning to manage money and ended up spending my food budget on something silly like a cute outfit. The result? I looked super cute while eating my Ramen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Ha ha!
I have fond memories of eating Ramen, but to be honest, it’s definitely not something I think about when I’m planning weekly dinners and definitely not when I’m planning something fancy. Enter these delicious DIY Ramen Noodle Recipes! Not only will they update your Ramen game, it will change how you view these versatile noodles.
Ramen, it’s not just for starving students.
#1 Winter Chicken Ramen: Six steps. You can handle that, I promise. The result? A delicious, protein filled meal that is perfect for a cold winter evening.

#2 Mason Jar Zoodles! Looking for something Paleo, flavorful, and super trendy? Mason Jar Zoodles are the answer. Not only do these come together super quick, but they look divine. This is a well balanced lunch that you can make beforehand, take on the go, and still feel like you’re eating healthy.
#3 Simple Homemade Ramen: Looking for something that is more traditionally Ramen? This is the dish and tastes like it came straight from a restaurant or yummy food truck. Choosing to get store bought chicken (rotisserie chicken, anyone?) takes the prep time in half and you’re stove to table in 30 minutes.
#4 Gluten Free Instant Ramen: Half my extended family are self proclaimed “Glutards” due to Celiac’s disease. Because of this, every meal we make when we get together either has to be entirely gluten-free or have a gluten free equal. This is an awesome substitute! Not only is the bullion homemade, but it came together fairly seamlessly.
#5 Homemade Ramen with Bacon and Eggs: I’ve mentioned before that we have chickens. Three at the moment. Which means that eggs are always plentiful in our house and I’m in a constant battle to try and figure out how to use them in creative ways. This was an awesome option and not only appeased my bacon loving Husband, but my kids were in love with the colors and the idea of having eggs in their soup.
So, whether you’re looking to up your Paleo game, or you want to dress up all those eggs in the fridge, Ramen noodle recipes might just be your next dinner night hit!
