Throw away the package ramen! This homemade slow cooker ramen recipe is super healthy and versatile. You can add or omit whatever veggies you like.
This recipe came from Instagram. I was toodling around on the Flavor God instagram page when I saw someone ask for a slow cooker recipe using the Flavor God seasonings. I was all over that of course. Plus I had all the ingredients. I had been meaning to make a ramen noodle dish sometime this week. What I didn’t know was which seasonings or spices to use. When I saw the Flavor God post, the light bulb went off. Duh. I have 21 of Flavor God’s seasonings. Yes you read that correctly, 21. I’ll get in to which are some of my favorites in another post. Back to the ramen. Homemade ramen is WAY healthier than package. Throw that seasoning package away! It’s full of crap. Pardon my french.
A large 6 or 7 quart slow cooker is best for a recipe like this. Anything smaller, I suggest you cut the recipe in half.
This is one of those slow cooker meals that cooks the majority of its time without the main ingredients. It tastes great and your house will smell fantastic but it’s not much to look at until it’s finished cooking. My husband did not care for the kale. To be honest, I kind of used it as filler and because I wanted to use it before it went bad. Personally I liked it but I can see how it’s not for everyone. I encourage you to use the vegetables you like. As I stated previously, you add the main ingredients at the end. The ramen and seafood all go in the slow cooker the last 15-20 minutes. Depending on how your slow cooker heats of course; mine usually cooks shrimp in 10 minutes or so.
