Use homemade broth (chicken, veggie, or miso) or even just water for a cleaner base. Season with soy sauce, kimchi paste, or gochujang for a flavour explosion.

Ditch the typical instant noodles, instead use rice noodles or spaghetti for a different mouthfeel and mood.
Swirl in a spoonful of peanut butter, tahini, or even leftover mashed potatoes for a rich and creamy texture.
Move beyond using just chilli flakes. Try using fresh ginger, garlic, sriracha, kimchi, or a spoonful of chilli oil to add excitement to your taste buds.
Add a little lemon or lime juice, which gives the dish a fresh and vibrant flavour that balances out the richness of the dish.
Top your ramen with a spoonful of pesto or chimichurri for a burst of herbal flavour.
