Step up your instant noodles game with this simple Sundubu Ramen recipe. Filled with extra flavour, kimchi, soft tofu, and an egg, this comforting recipe is sure to fill you up with only a few simple ingredients! Done in 15 minutes or less!

Recently, I saw a TikTok where a dietician said, “think of eating healthier as adding more to your diet instead of taking stuff away,” and I’ve decided to live by that motto! This simple recipe adds extra wholesome and nutritious ingredients to instant ramyun (aka ramen), which is, while comforting and easy, not super healthy.

This recipe combines two household favourites: sundubu jjigae (tofu stew) and instant noodles. It comes together in a fraction of the time and will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make sundubu ramen.
  • sesame oil — I use pure sesame oil as I’m sautéing the kimchi in it. For extra sesame flavour, feel free to finish the dish off with a splash of toasted sesame oil.
  • kimchi — add as much or as little kimchi as you like. I try to add more since it’s good for you.
  • garlic — I highly recommend using minced garlic (not store-bought) for this. I usually have frozen garlic on hand for ease. All you have to do is mince a bunch of garlic at once with a food processor and you’ll have garlic ready to go!
  • water — for the soup base. No need to use a broth because the seasoning packets will add flavour.
  • instant noodles and it’s seasoning packets — I use Samyang Ramen but Shin Ramyun is another favourite, especially Shin Ramyun Black.
  • gochugaru — I add some gochugaru (Korean red chili pepper powder) for some extra heat. You can omit it if you’re not a fan of spice.
  • extra soft tofu/silken tofu — also known as sundubu (also spelled soondubu), this tofu is extra silky and has a velvety texture as the tofu has not been pressed.
  • egg — just one egg is enough for me. I love adding a raw egg directly into the hot soup as it’ll cook it. You can also mix it super quickly into the soup to give the soup a creamier texture.
  • green onions — the more green onions, the better!
