Hi Bold Bakers!
When I think of dorm living and what students eat I think about the dried packs of $1 Ramen with “chicken seasoning” inside. Now, I too ate my fair share of noodles while in college simply because they are cheap, filling and easy. I’m going to side step the fact that I was in culinary school at the time and still chose to eat the store bought noodles. But that all led me to create this Microwave Mug Homemade Ramen recipe!
My Homemade Ramen is made with a handful of ingredients that are basics in most kitchens and staples in dorm kitchens, like noodles, frozen veg, soy sauce etc. I bet if you check your cupboard right now you have at least 4 out of 6 of the ingreidents.
If you have a child or friend in college who lives on store bought ramen do them a solid and share this recipe with them. They will thank you, especially when they don’t gain the freshman 15 because they made their own meals.

This Microwave Homemade Ramen is real food fast, not fast food. It is so satisfying to eat something you made that is made with good ingredients.
Microwave the Ramen until the noodles are firm and fully cooked. Feel free to add more seasonings once cooked like fish sauce, more soy sauce etc. The soup is very forgiving, you can get really creative with your ingredients and flavors here.
Cooking time given is based on my 1200W Panasonic Inverter Microwave so your timing might vary. I suggest checking it after 1 minute and go from there.

- 1 cup Chicken stock (or veg stock)
- A few strands of Ramen Noodles (¼ portion)
- 2 tablespoons frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 teaspoons amino acids (or soy sauce)
- ½ teaspoons chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon green onions , sliced
- In a large microwavable mug add in all of your ingredients. Use a large mug as the stock can bubble up while cooking. Break the noodles so they fit in the mug
- Microwave for 2-2 ½ minutes or until the noodles are tender. The timing is based on my 1200W Panasonic Inverter Microwave so yours might vary.
- Serve hot from the microwave. Feel free to add more chili sauce, sesame seeds or any flavors you like.
Pour the hot Ramen into a soup/ coffee canister and take it with you to school. It will keep hot for hours.
