I love Ramen noodles, but they are high in salt and high in calories! So I have researched and found a way to make them with less calories and way less sodium with an easy to make homemade ramen spice.
If you are looking for a great noodle dish that is close to Ramen this is for you! I also added in a few red pepper flakes, but if you use A LOT of the spice you won’t need it because of the black pepper. Use this spice to taste, It will last you a long time!!! If you don’t have ground ginger, leave it out! You can buy fresh and freeze and grate in how much you would like in your dish!
I hope you enjoy this Ramen spice dish as much as I did! As you can see it made a fantastic on the go meal for lunch!
- 2tbs of ground ginger
- 1tbs of black pepper
- 2 tbs of garlic powder
- 2 tbs of onion powder
- 1 package of Shirataki Tofu noodles
- opt. 4 oz of lean ground beef
- opt. broccoli steamed
- 4tbs of low sodium chicken broth
- Salt to taste
- Put spices in an airtight container.
- Shake to combine.
- Drain and rinse noodles and set aside.
- Brown meat , and then add in noodles, chicken broth, and broccoli.
- After 3-5 min of cooking taste, and salt to your preferred level.
- If you salt toward the end you will need much less salt.
Sounds great, will certainly make it…. but… uhhh… when exactly do you add the spices? During the cooking or afterwards?
After you cook the noodles
This is great! I’ve been looking around for this because I like making the noodles at home, but it’s so much easier to have a pre-made seasoning to add some extra flavor to my typical miso broth 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

If I was to use this for a single package of ramen noodles, how much would I use? Like a TBLS?
It varies so much by person. I’d say a good starting point would be to “eyeball” what would be half of the standard seasoning packet that comes with it. I say half, because some volume in the packet is taken up with salt, sugar, animal products, and who knows what. (btw… a pinch of sugar greatly enhances the flavor of your diy ramen. It has the same effect on spaghetti sauce, and most commercial sauces include sugar)
No luck with this one. WAY too peppery. Recipe doesn’t even say to add the spice mix.
I agree! This was awful!

Outstanding. I just added about a teaspoon to one cake of Brown Rice Ramen. It was perfect. I used 2 cups of water and added 2 teaspoons of Better than Bullion chicken base and boiled the ramen in that. After the water was boiling I added the bullion and after one minute separated ramen with a fork. Then after 3 minutes I added a teaspoon of the spice and boiled it for another 30-40 seconds and it was perfect! (I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the blend. So just used spices above where the Tofu ramen is listed in the recipe.

Holy heaven sent! Thanks for the spices to make my ramen like store bought! It is a tad peppery, so I will cut that down a bit next time. I made just like Dawn Anderson’s comments, also with brown rice noodles, adding a little salt too. It is tasting wonderful! Thank you, thank you!!!
This was terrible. Way too much pepper and I didn’t even use the full amount. Plus the recipe never even says when to add the spices. All bad.
I don’t mean to be rude but, It was terrible. My husband (who will eat anything) got a bit ill after forcing this down. Although I followed the recipe to a T, It was somehow tasteless and WAY too peppery at the same time. Eventually, I attempted to doctor it up and it did taste a bit better after the doctoring but, it was still disgusting.
