Vegetarian Ramen Recipe Details:

About 73% of the reason I love ramen and pho is the broth. While traditional ramen and pho broth are slow-cooked over hours, I find a simple garlic-ginger broth with some spices does a mighty fine job of lending flavor to the soup, while keeping the cook time to a minimum.

As you can see, I went the green route, incorporating leek, bok choy, broccoli, and green onion. Add some freshly chopped basil and you’ve If you eat gluten-free like me, simply use vermicelli rice noodles. Done and done.

Let’s discuss protein. The soft boiled egg situation is the perfect addition for a little protein infusion. If you’ve never made soft boiled eggs, it’s easy!

Simply boil the eggs for 4 to 6 minutes, stick them in an ice bath until chilled, then peel per usual. The yolk comes out gooey with mega cream flavor. If you’re up for the animal, you can add raw shrimp, chopped chicken, sliced pork, and/or sliced beef to the soup.
