What are crispy ramen rolls?
These ramen rolls are basically a little crispy bite of heaven. They’re made with seasoned ramen noodles and some fresh vegetables that are wrapped in rice paper and crisped in a pan. I love serving them as an appetizer, or as a side dish like you would an egg roll!
Are these crispy ramen rolls healthy?
They are gluten and soy-free so they’re allergen-friendly, but I definitely consider these more of comfort food, special occasion meal, and not “healthy“. But in my opinion, it is healthy to have balance, so these are really fun to pair with an otherwise healthy meal when you want something fun!

How do you serve these ramen rolls?
I love serving them as an appetizer, or as a side dish like you would an egg roll! They’re best eaten with your hands, so wait for them to cool a bit, or you can try using a utensil if you prefer.
They have a ton of flavor on their own but you can also add a sauce for dipping like…
Can you make these crispy ramen rolls ahead of time?
I find that these are best fresh, but if you have leftovers, you can keep them in the fridge for a day or so and re-crisp in a pan or in the air fryer.
Can you make these ramen rolls in the air fryer?
You can! I would cook it at 400 F for about 6-8 minutes. However, I find these still crisp better in a pan than the air fryer.
- Cook the ramen as directed and strain. Return to the pot and combine with coconut aminos, vinegar, coconut sugar, and seasonings. Stir to combine and season further to taste.
- Dip the rice paper in a large bowl of water for about 5 seconds or until softened.
- Transfer the rice paper to a large plate or clean workstation. Add about 1/4-1/3 cup worth of ramen to the center of the rice paper and top with cabbage, carrots, and green onion.
- Roll the rice rolls by folding in the two corners, then folding up the bottom edge and rolling into a tight roll. Set aside and repeat for all of the ingredients.
- Using a large deep pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Carefully add the ramen rolls and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, rotating with tongs until the rolls are lightly crisp.
- Remove from the pan and allow to cool before serving with a sauce if desired.
