Kujirai Ramen (Quick & Easy!)

Kujirai Ramen. Bouncy instant ramen noodles cooked in a luscious creamy cheesy sauce with runny egg, green onions with optional garlic. This simple ramen hack is so surprisingly flavourful, delicious, and only takes 3 minutes to cook! I also share microwave instructions in the Notes section below.

  • 1 pack spicy soup-based instant ramen (Jin Ramen or Shin Ramen brands work well!)
  • ½ pack instant ramen seasoning
  • 1 pack instant ramen dried vegetable flakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 slices American cheese sliced in half (or sub with normal cheddar cheese)
  • 275 ml water
  • 1 tablespoon green onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced (optional)


  • In a shallow pan (about 10 inches wide), add water, instant ramen seasoning, instant dried vegetable flakes, and garlic. Bring to a rolling simmer over low-medium heat. Do not turn heat past this or it’ll evaporate the water quickly.
  • Once the water comes to a low simmer, add instant ramen. Cook instant ramen on each side for about 20-30 seconds. As soon as noodles are loosened, make a well and crack an egg into it.
  • Cover with a lid to cook the egg for 1 minute. Once the egg whites are opaque, add sliced cheese and green onions. Cook for another 1 minute and enjoy!


Kujirai ramen microwave instructions:

  1. Simply add water, instant ramen with the seasoning, dried veggie flakes and garlic (optional) into a large microwave safe bowl.
  2. Cover it with plastic wrap. Heat it for 1 minute on high. Carefully peel back the plastic wrap and watch for steam.
  3. Then loosen the noodles and make a well in the middle. Crack the egg into the well and poke a hole in the yolk (to prevent it from exploding).
  4. Cover with plastic wrap again and poke some more holes into the plastic to allow the steam to escape. Microwave for another 2-2:30 minutes.
  5. Uncover and layer on the cheese and garnish with green onions. Enjoy!
