15-Minute Garlic Butter Ramen

This recipe is so easy and soo delicious! Garlic, butter, ramen? What’s not to love? For anyone who doesn’t love cooking and wants a fast easy meal to prepare this is for you! The only comment I have is that it was a bit salty but you could probably cut down on the soy sauce and adjust to taste. Otherwise, definitely going to be one of my go-to recipes in the future!

Time: It actually took me 20 minutes to prep but maybe now that I know how to make it I can shorten it to 15 minutes πŸ˜‰

I got this recipe from Half Baked Harvest Super Simple Cookbook which you can get HERE. However, I found recipe on her website that is very similar. See below or HERE.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ramen noodle packs, seasoning packet discarded*
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger peeled + grated**
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste***
  • 2 small or 1 medium zucchini spiralized or grated****
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 4 soft boiled or fried eggs
  • toasted sesame seeds for serving

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook ramen noodles according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often to ensure the garlic is not burning. You want to slowly caramelize the garlic in the butter.
  3. Add the ginger and miso paste and cook another minute.
  4. Add the zucchini and cook 2-3 minutes.
  5. Toss in the cooked ramen noodles and remove from heat.
  6. Add soy sauce and basil. Toss to combine.
  7. Divide the noodles among bowls and top with eggs and sesame seeds.

Notes:

*I just used Mr. Noodles.

**I used 1 teaspoon dried ground ginger

***I have never been able to find this in grocery stores. I’ve read you can substitute soy sauce but there is already enough in this recipe so you could just omit the miso paste.

****You could use any vegetable here such as spinach.

Equipment Required:

Miso Beef and Ramen Noodle Peanut Stir-Fry

This dish is so flavourful and delicious!!! Ramen has become my new favourite thing to cook after discovering Half Baked Harvest. This homemade stir-fry is so so flavourful and colourful! It is fairly high on prep time due to the shredded and dicing of vegetables but the end result is soo soo worth it!
