Ramen is a popular Japanese noodle soup dish known for its rich broth, chewy noodles, and various toppings. Here's a basic recipe for making ramen at home:


  • 4 cups (960ml) chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups (480ml) water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine) or rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 packages of ramen noodles (about 7-8 ounces or 200-230g)
  • Toppings: boiled eggs, sliced green onions, sliced bamboo shoots, sliced mushrooms, nori (dried seaweed), cooked sliced pork or chicken, corn kernels, spinach, etc.


Prepare the Broth:

  • In a large pot, combine the chicken or vegetable broth, water, minced garlic, sliced ginger, soy sauce, mirin or rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Cook the Ramen Noodles:

  • While the broth is simmering, bring another pot of water to a boil. Cook the ramen noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain the noodles and rinse them under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.

Prepare the Toppings:

  • Prepare any toppings you'd like to add to your ramen, such as boiled eggs, sliced green onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, nori, cooked sliced pork or chicken, corn kernels, spinach, etc. Arrange them on a plate for easy assembly.

Assemble the Ramen Bowls:

  • Divide the cooked noodles among serving bowls. Ladle the hot broth over the noodles, making sure to distribute the garlic and ginger slices evenly. Arrange your desired toppings on top of the noodles and broth.


  • Serve the ramen hot, garnished with additional sliced green onions or sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy immediately.


  • Feel free to customize your ramen with your favorite ingredients and toppings. You can add or omit toppings based on your preferences.
  • For a vegetarian or vegan version, use vegetable broth and omit any animal-based toppings.
  • To add extra flavor to the broth, you can also simmer it with additional aromatics like onion, leek, or dried shiitake mushrooms.
  • Ramen noodles cook quickly, so be sure to keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking.
  • Leftover ramen can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave before serving.
