5 Delicious Dry Ramen Recipes for Daily Meals

dry ramen header mage

Traditional soup ramen is super-delicious, that’s a fact everyone abides by! There are hundreds of recipes and even more flavors to explore, all around the world. However, some types of ramen are sometimes overlooked in favor of the more traditional ones. Dry ramen recipes are an example. 

Over the years that we’ve been experimenting with ramen, we’ve found that dry ramen is a whole different world, in terms of both taste and texture. To bring you some of our awesome recipe experiences, we’ve compiled our top five dry ramen recipes that you can have as daily meals.

Kimchi Bibim Guksu

Kimchi Bibim Guksu is a Korean spicy kimchi noodle dish that’s common in the local street food scene. 

It’s a noodle recipe that’s made with fully aged spicy kimchi that’s thinly sliced, almost to the thickness of a noodle strand. Although the traditional version of the dish is served cold, it’s adaptable enough to where you can have it as a warm meal too. 

What’s great about this recipe is that you can make it with any kind of kimchi. However, we’re partial towards the spicy kind. You can also make this with delicious immi ramen for a low-carb alternative that tastes amazing. 

Use immi for a perfect low-carb noodle alternative!

Sauteed Chili Ramen

Ask any South Asian person, they’ll tell you how delicious lightly fried chilies can be! This was the idea behind this savory and spicy recipe.

To keep a more manageable heat, we use less intense ingredients such as Thai sweet peppers, Fresno chilies, and Sichuan peppercorns. We also remove the seeds so that the most flavorful part of the chili remains. You can add the seeds if you want more heat. 

Our Spicy ‘Beef’ flavored immi ramen works great for this recipe because it already has the ideal flavor base for you to add on with your choice of chilies.

Ingredients

*These amounts are for two large bowls*

Ramen Noodles: 250 g

Thai Sweet Peppers: 3, large

Fresno Chilies: 3, large

Poblano Peppers: 2, medium

Oyster Sauce: 1 tablespoon

Sweet Soy Sauce: 1 tablespoon

Dark Soy Sauce: 1 tablespoon

MSG: ¼ teaspoon

Instructions

  1. De-seed the chilies and chop them into slivers
  2. Lightly saute the chili slivers until soft and fragrant
  3. Combine the sauces and MSG till they are mixed well
  4. Add the sauces to the sauteing chilies, cook for 3-4 minutes
  5. Cook the noodles according to package directions (pull them out of the water 30 seconds before recommended)
  6. Toss the noodles in with the chili sauce and mix well on very low heat
  7. Take off the heat, garnish with finely chopped scallions (optional) before serving

If you really want to explore different chili varieties in this dish, here’s a list of chilies along with their hotness levels. 

Garlic Tofu Ramen

Garlic is one of our top aromatic ingredients because of the deep, sweet flavor it develops when you cook it. We love tofu because it absorbs flavor so well. Put the two together and you have the perfect recipe to create with noodles.

The amount of garlic used here might sound a little scary at first, but it’s the exact opposite once you cook it. Fried in a little butter, tofu begins to take on the garlic flavor while also developing a crust on the outside. 

If you want just a tiny bit more tang, make it with delicious Tom Yum ‘Shrimp’ flavored immi ramen

Ingredients

*These amounts are for two bowls*

Ramen Noodles: 250 g

Tofu: 1 cup (diced) 

Garlic: 1 cup (finely chopped)

Green Onion: ¼ cup (finely chopped)

Soy Sauce: 3 tablespoons

MSG: ¼ teaspoon

Brown Sugar: 1 teaspoon

Instructions

  1. Saute the garlic and tofu with the soy sauce, brown sugar, and MSG for 3 minutes
  2. Cook the noodles according to package instructions
  3. Take the noodles out of the pot and add to the garlic tofu alongside the green onion
  4. Cook the noodles while tossing with the garlic for 30-40 seconds or until all the liquid dries
  5. Drizzle with some Hoisin sauce (optional) and serve

Maple Soy Noodles

Dark soy sauce and maple syrup are a superb combination because of their deep, rich flavors that develop over time. Cook them in with ramen and you have a delicious savory and sweet combo.

This meal is inspired by the happy mealtime accidents that happened when we were young and tried to cook something for the first time! Even as children though, we realized that mixing soy and maple creates an awesome cooking and pouring sauce.

Depending on your taste, you can try different maple-to-soy ratios to see which one you like best. 

Ingredients

*These amounts are for two large bowls*

Ramen Noodles: 250 g

Dark Maple Syrup: 2 tablespoons

Dark Soy Sauce: 3 tablespoons

Sesame Oil: 1 tablespoon

Garlic: 2-3 cloves (minced)

Green Onion: For garnishing

Instructions

  1. Saute the garlic in the sauces and oil for 30 seconds or until just fragrant
  2. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions
  3. Take the noodles out and toss in the sauce mix
  4. Stir fry till the liquid evaporates and the ramen is coated with the sauce
  5. Top with the green onion before serving

Abura Soba

This recipe is on the fancy side when it comes to dry ramen recipes. However, the classic Tokyo Abura Soba is definitely one of our favorite ramen recipes, let alone in the dry realm.

Also known as Mazesoba, this recipe has toppings that you’d commonly see in soup ramen. These include boiled egg, tofu, green onion, and meat (chashu pork being the most common). 

Because it’s much closer to a traditional ramen dish, you can use savory Black Garlic ‘Chicken’ flavored immi ramen as a substitute for the ramen base, without any modifications to the recipe. 

Try using our Black Garlic Chicken immi as the perfect low-carb ramen base substitute!
