You’ve probably seen the videos in your feed.  TikTok Ramen is a social media star, and it’s no wonder: ramen is cheap, versatile, and, OH, SO YUMMY

When I find myself looking for an easy weekend dinner to throw together or even a quick lunch before getting back to work, ramen’s kind of a no-brainer.

While you might consider ramen to be a Japanese dish, it’s believed to have originated in China and was brought to Japan in the mid-1800s.  There, it was sold by street-food merchants, and today, it’s so popular it’s gone viral – with a few social media tweaks, of course!

This TikTok Ramen meal is one of those ways to take a super inexpensive packet of already incredible ramen noodles and bring it NEXT LEVEL, thanks to all the amazing TikTok additions.

Can I make my own Everything Bagel Seasoning? 

Yes, you sure can make your own everything bagel seasoning with just some pantry ingredients. Mix together 3 tbsp. each of:

  • poppy seeds
  • sesame seeds
  • as well as 2 tbsp. each of the dried onion and dried garlic. 

You can also use Furikake or Fried Rice seasoning as a substitute.

Q & A

What if I’m gluten-free? 

No problem, just use rice noodles in place of the ramen and change the soy sauce to Tamari.

What if I’m out of Ramen Noodles?

Don’t sweat; any Asian noodles will do as a substitutio.  Just remember not to overcook them, it’s better to be slightly al dente.

How can I make ramen healthier?

For the butter, try substituting ghee, olive oil, or avocado oil.  For the sugar, you can use a low-calorie alternative like stevia or even agave or chicory.  To cut some of the sodium, try using Tamari or coconut aminos.

I’m vegan; can I leave out the egg and butter?

Absolutely, I would suggest substituting sesame oil for the butter, but any vegetable oil will work. As for the egg, a vegetable-based based replacer (such as JUST Egg) works great too, or just leave it out altogether.

  1. My new go to snack. So so good.

  2. Recipe is WAY too sweet and tasted like sugar. Would cut down on the brown sugar and too equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar.

  3. Super easy to make and delicious!
