As a chef who is always cooking dinners for others, I’m often rendered too tired afterwards to cook anything for myself requiring substantial effort. As a result, instant ramen has come to my rescue on many occasions. Having that base of noodles and a flavorful broth at the ready within minutes is so helpful on those late evenings.

I doubt I will ever get tired of eating ramen, but I do like to play around with it so it always feels interesting. For starters, doctoring it up with things like fresh vegetables, tofu, eggs and herbs gives ramen a homemade touch and adds a welcome pop of color and nutrients. I also like to mix things up by making a ramen stir fry as an alternative to soup!

This Spicy Miso Ramen Stir Fry is a great example of how you can get creative with ramen in a very short amount of time. It’s perfect for busy weeknights when a quick meal is called for. We start with Annie Chun’s Spicy Miso Ramen Bowl with fresh, quick cooking noodles and a deliciously spicy miso sauce packet. The sauce is mixed with a few other simple ingredients and stir fried with the ramen noodles, broccoli, bell peppers and cashews. Scallions and sesame seeds on top give the dish tons of texture and flavor.

How to make this Spicy Miso Ramen Stir Fry

First we saute the vegetables with some garlic in a skillet. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl and add water and the ramen noodles to the same skillet. Since these noodles are fresh they only need a couple of minutes to cook! The water will be mostly evaporated by the time the noodles are done.

While the noodles are cooking, the miso sauce packet is combined with soy sauce, honey and cornstarch and added to skillet with the noodles. Add the vegetables back to the pan and toss everything together, cooking until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Lastly, transfer everything to a bowl and top it with cashews, scallions and sesame seeds.
