If you need a very simple to make dinner – this is it! Ginger Ramen is so simple but so full of flavor. The combination of just a few ingredients meshes so well – your family is going to think it took you all day to make. This is the perfect soup to make after a long day as the weather gets colder. It will warm you up and make you feel all cozy inside. It is also really budget friendly, as the small number of relatively inexpensive ingredients don’t add up to a high cost.

I usually like to use Rice Ramen by Lotus Foods, but our stores have been out of it lately. So I just used the old standby – Top Ramen. I just set the powder packets aside and use the bricks – which makes it even more budget friendly. You can use whatever type of ramen you usually do. You can also make this with glass noodles or thin spaghetti noodles – which ever you have on hand. Just be sure to adjust the cook time accordingly.

Some people prefer to have more components to their ramen bowls. The simplicty of this ramen recipes is what makes it so perfect for weeknight meals. However, you could certainly add in a few extra ingredients. If you want to add some heat – a jalapeno cut in coins would work. If you want more veggies, I would suggest sliced mushrooms or bean sprouts. Want it to be more hearty? You could add in more chicken or some tofu.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
