This Quick Homemade Vegetable Ramen Soup is the cure for what ails you! It’s loaded with veggies, garlic, ginger and even hot sauce.

If you’re already feeling great, then keep that feeling going by whipping up this nutritious soup for an easy lunch or dinner. You’ll be glad you did!
Bring the Heat
The first time made this vegetable ramen soup, I had a wicked cold along with a sinus and ear infection. Ugh! A rich brothy soup just sounded so good to me. I threw all of this together and then topped it with about 1/4 cup of hot sauce. LOL! I couldn’t taste anything due to the cold, so I just kept pouring it on. It was sooo good. 🙂
Now that I’ve made it a few times since then, I find I don’t need quite as much hot sauce, but a few shakes never hurt anyone and it really does add a great flavor.
30 Minute Meal
I used store bought vegetable broth which allows this soup to come together in less than 30 minutes, but feel free to use homemade if you prefer.
I’m glad I have leftovers of this ramen soup in my fridge right now because just typing this up is making me crave a big bowl.
