Ramen Rice Ball

These ramen rice balls are the perfect packable food for lunch boxes, on-the-go meals, or quick snacks. Spicy ramen noodles are wrapped in seaweed and stuffed with a jammy ramen egg – a surprise treat in the center!

Onigiri, or Japanese rice balls, are a staple in bento boxes typically served for lunch. Balls of rice are wrapped in nori and often filled with meat, seafood, and/or vegetables. Rice balls are a fun finger food to enjoy on the go.

If you don't know how to make the perfect ramen egg, it's a good skill to have in your wheelhouse. Essentially, you boil eggs for 6-7 minutes and then place in an ice bath before peeling.

Once your ramen egg is prepared, it's time to make the noodles. Cook just the noodles in a package of Mike's Mighty Good Kimchi Ramen. While the noodles are cooking, prepare your sauce. Mix MMG kimchi soup base and
seasoning oil packets, plus gochujang. Add in noodles when ready.

Lay a large sheet of nori on a flat surface. Layer ramen noodles and
peeled egg in the middle, and top with more noodles, leaving a good edge of nori for wrapping. Wrap the sides of the nori around the noodles and egg to form a ball. Cut down the middle and serve with toasted sesame seeds on top.
