Vietnamese Noodle Bowls

Below is a concise recipe for SproutChefs to start with, but my hope is to give them the confidence to combine their own ingredients that include the four basic components - broth, noodles, protein and veggies. Flavorings can be added such as herbs, spices, salsas and salt, according to taste.

Vietnamese Noodle Bowls

Serves 4 adults


  • 2 packets ramen noodles, minus the artificial flavor packet, if it has one

  • 4 cups veggie, chicken or beef broth, more can be added if desired

  • 3 cups cut-up fresh veggies such as broccoli, sweet peppers, onions, mushrooms etc..

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces and marinated in teriyaki sauce.

Teriyaki Sauce Ingredients, to Marinate the Chicken:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon, grated fresh ginger


  1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces

  2. Mix all the teriyaki ingredients together in a bowl and add chicken.

  3. Let the chicken marinate anywhere from 20 minutes to 6 hours in the refrigerator.

  4. Cut up the veggies.

  5. Stir-fry each veggie in a tablespoon of sesame oil and set aside. (Each veggie cooks at a different rate, so it is important to keep them separated.)

  6. The chicken should be stir-fried without the marinade.

  7. Once the chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink, add the marinade back in.

  8. Add the veggies and broth and bring to a boil.

  9. Add the ramen noodles and cook for three minutes.

Serve immediately. Sriracha sauce can be served on the side for adventuresome eaters.

Leftovers can keep in the refrigerator for a day or two and heated up in the microwave oven.

There are as many variations on this recipe as there are ingredients in your kitchen. This is a great recipe to experiment with, combing different ingredients together for a satisfying flavor. It’s also a great way to clean out the vegetable drawer of a refrigerator before restocking new ingredients. It’s also an easy meal to make when time is short.

The basic ingredients:

  • Ramen noodles (Minus any flavor packets it may come with.)

  • Cut up fresh veggies

  • A protein - beef, chicken, tofu,

  • Chicken, beef or veggie broth

  • Flavors such as garlic, ginger, herbs, salt, soy sauce, hot sauce etc…
