Oh how I love me some Ramen Noodle Soup. It’s quick, easy, and tastes yummy! It makes for a perfect late night snack, cold day soup, or quick on the go meal.

While Ramen Noodle Soup can be a quick and delicious meal, it’s often very high in sodium. Following is a healthier Ramen Noodle Soup Recipe that is just as quick, and super filling.

You can use a package of Ramen Noodles (minus the seasoning) as the recipe suggests. Or for an even healthier Ramen Noodle Soup, check out these Hakubaku Organic Ramen Noodles. They are authentic Japanese wheat noodles, and are super delicious.

Adding a variety of vegetables, and omitting the seasoning that comes with packaged ramen, makes this a healthier ramen soup. The best part about this soup is that you can use your favorite vegetables, or whatever vegetables are in season. Use this base recipe to create a variety of different soups.

Servings 2


  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 2 medium carrots rough chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth – I use low sodium
  • 1 package of ramen noodles – omit the seasoning
  • 1 cup snap or snow peas – frozen is fine
  • 1 cup kale – spinach, or other leafy green
  • .5 tsp salt
  • .5 tsp black pepper
  • soy sauce, sriracha, turmeric, or any other seasonings you might like


  • Heat olive oil in a stock pot over medium heat.
  • Add onions and carrots and cook until vegetables start to brown.
  • Add garlic, being careful not to burn.
  • Add chicken stock and bring to a low boil.
  • Add 1 package of ramen noodles, without the seasoning packet.
  • If using frozen snap/snow peas, add them now.
  • When the noodles are cooked (approximately 3-5 minutes) add fresh snap/snow peas and leafy greens.
  • Add salt, pepper, and any other seasonings to taste. (Adjust to your preferences.)


I like to add a variety of different herbs and spices to my soup. Some of my favorites are turmeric, ginger, and curry powder. You can use fresh turmeric and ginger, or dry/powdered.
