5 Homemade Ramen Bowls Under 500 Calories

Nothing inspires a ramen craving more than a cold, winter day. Stay inside and make your own with one of these five healthy recipes ranging from traditional chicken ramen to spiralized daikon ramen and a “clean-out-the-fridge” version loaded with leftover vegetables. This is definitely not the sodium-laden ramen of your college days.

1. CHICKEN RAMEN WITH QUICK PICKLED CARROTS | MYFITNESSPAL’S RECIPES

A store-bought rotisserie chicken is the key to making this 15-minute ramen. Tip: Make additional pickled carrots to add to salads and sandwiches throughout the week. Recipe makes 2 servings at 1/2 recipe each.

2. VEGETARIAN RAMEN WITH GARLIC GINGER BROTH | THE ROASTED ROOT

Nutritional yeast is the secret ingredient in this ramen bowl, imparting depth of flavor and a velvety texture. For extra protein, top with a soft-boiled egg. Recipe makes 5 servings at 1/5 recipe each.

3. CLEAN-OUT-THE-FRIDGE MISO RAMEN | DAMN DELICIOUS

Clear out the leftover vegetables in your fridge for use in this miso-based, less than 200-calorie ramen. Top with a splash of Sriracha if you like heat. Recipe makes 4 servings at 1/4 recipe each.

4. SPIRALIZED DAIKON RAMEN WITH PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS AND SOFT-BOILED EGG | INSPIRALIZED

With its crunchy texture, daikon absorbs the flavors of this simple, homemade broth. To reduce the carbs even further, swap zucchini for the daikon. Recipe makes 2 servings at 1/2 recipe each.

5. JAPANESE RAMEN | UPROOT KITCHEN

Instant noodles are the shortcut to this ramen, requiring just 5 minutes to prep. By ditching the seasoning packet, the noodles are transformed into a nutritious vegetable-packed soup.
