Amp up packs of ramen with this easy, quick garlic butter ramen recipe - served meatless or with your choice of meat and hard-boiled eggs!
My entire family is obsessed with anime and manga. We watch anything and everything - and read it too! We particularly love Naruto and ramen is featured a lot in the original series (I have yet to watch Shippuden). So this means we have been trying a ton of ramen recipes lately. I think this one is not only the tastiest, but it's the easiest and I think it is everyone's favorite. I absolutely love it because it's buttery and garlicky with fresh ginger and zucchini. That's just plain heavenly if you ask me. Plus it has basil too! I mean this recipe was made for me, I tell you what! The original recipe does not have any meat, but when I first made this (I've made it a few times now and it's already on the meal plan for November), I decided to saute up some pork cut into strips in a little skillet while making the ramen. Yes, I did end up with another dirty pan, but it didn't take any longer to make the recipe and it was such a wonderful addition to it. I know we will eat this recipe often :)
What you need:
- 2 to 3 packs ramen noodles, discard seasoning packet
- 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 4 cloves minced garlic
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- 1 Tbsp. white or red miso paste
- 2 small zucchini, spiralized or grated
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
- 4 hard-boiled eggs
- Toasted sesame seeds for serving (optional)
- Tofu, chicken, beef, or pork, seasoned and cooked (optional)
- Boil ramen noodles in a pot of salted water for 2 to 3 minutes; drain.
- Meanwhile, add butter and garlic to a large skillet and cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often.
- Add ginger and miso and cook for 1 more minute.
- Add zucchini and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes.
- Add ramen noodles and toss. Remove from heat.
- Add soy sauce and basil and toss.
- Divide between bowls and top with eggs, seeds, or meat.
While the pictures are ugly (I will definitely have to remedy that asap), the recipe for these Garlic Beef & Broccoli Noodle Bowls is mouthwateringly awesome! It's another quick weeknight meal recipe that you will want on rotation. I really would love to try this Tonkotsu Ramen from Binging with Babish - who is one of my favorite food Youtubers (Foodtubers?).
