Ramen noodle stir fry with a mix of colorful, assorted vegetables and basil stir fried in a delicious savory sauce is all you need for a quick and easy weeknight dinner!
This just happened to be one of those throw together meals that turned out to be delicious. Not too shabby at all for this last minute meal and so much better than take-out!
It’s super easy to change up and customize using your favorite veggies. And the sauce clings just right to the noodles and veggies for flavor in every bite!
So without further ado, let’s stir fry!
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Ramen Noodles – I used these ramen noodles (affiliate link), but you can sub in 100% soba noodles making this a gluten free dish. Alternatively, use regular spaghetti noodles.
- Veggies – Feel free to add in as many veggies as you wish. Keep it simple or use whatever your heart desires. For ease, pick up a frozen stir fry mix or prepackaged in the produce section. Use any combo of snow peas, red or green bell peppers, sliced onion, green onion, mushrooms, cabbage, carrots, celery, broccoli, zucchini & yellow squash, bean sprouts, baby corn, etc. You can never have enough vegetables in my opinion, so overshooting is ok, especially the basil – the more the merrier!
- Tamari – Low sodium preferred, or low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos.
- Pure Maple Syrup – Can sub with a few tablespoons of coconut or pure cane sugar.
- Cornstarch – My fav is this Anthony’s Organic (affiliate link), can sub with arrowroot or tapioca flour.
- Garlic – Use fresh or bottled minced ginger for ease.
- Ginger – Use fresh or for ease use ginger paste.
- Rice Vinegar – Also known as rice wine vinegar, it will add a dose of brightness.
- Red Pepper Flakes – Adds heat, adjust to taste.

Your sauce is amazing. I used the veg I had in the fridge. And ramen noodles. Next time I will try the noodles you use.
Delicious! Made just as written.
Can anyone think of a replacement option for the tamari?
You can use regular or reduced-sodium soy sauce, coconut aminos, or Bragg’s liquid aminos. I hope that helps!
Thank you! I have also had to remove the pepper and garlic from the sauce, and can report that it’s still very tasty!
