Sometimes all you need is a single ingredient to give instant ramen a bold upgrade. Reach for kimchi to bring an intensely funky, spicy twist to a simple bowl of noodle soup and never go back to kimchi-free ramen again.

Why You Should Use This Instant Upgrade

Consider this just one of many ways to put that jar of kimchi in the fridge to work. The salty ramen broth balances the pungent flavor of the kimchi, while the fermented cabbage adds more texture to the soup. Get ready for a nose-clearing ramen soup experience!

How to Make It

Add the instant ramen along with about one tablespoon of prepared kimchi to a small saucepan, and cook according to the package instructions. Pour into a bowl, top with another spoonful of prepared kimchi, and serve.
