You will fall in love with this healthy ramen with rice noodles, spicy tofu, a lot of veggies and soft-boiled eggs! It’s Meatless Monday today, which is a little reminder for you that if you care about your health and environment, consider going meatless for at least one day in a week.

 

Meatless Monday, an international non-profit health movement to reduce meat consumption in the world, states that skipping meat for at least one day a week can reduce the risk of heart diseases, obesity, diabetes and cancer, as well as restraint the carbon footprint caused by cattle breeding, saving non-renewable energy resources and fresh water.

 

I support this initiative and help promoting it (see the Meatless Monday recipe of the last week).

And I think that this is the case of homemade healthy ramen I made today. Rich milky miso broth, thin gluten-free rice noodles, a lot of veggies, spicy tofu, and a soft-boiled egg on top… It’s so delicious that it’s worth all the efforts and time you put into it.

 

How To Make Healthy Ramen with Rice Noodles, Tofu and Veggies

 

No worries, it’s not hard to make. Moreover, you might already have most of the ingredients on hand or find them in your local grocery store. If not, Amazon would be a great help.

 

You’ll need dried mu-err mushrooms (shiitake would fit as well), tofu, eggs, dark miso paste, unsweetened soy drink, mirin, gluten-free soy sauce (tamari), rice noodles, sesame oil, any hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, ginger, lime, hot pepper, sesame seeds and veggies (I used bok choy, carrots, spinach, leek and Chinese red cabbage).

 

It might seem like a lot but believe me, once you have these ingredients at home, you can make so many delicious meals you couldn’t think are possible to make at home. Every ingredient is justified, so don’t be overwhelmed, it’s not too much of work at all.

 

In fact, you only have to make a broth, fry tofu, carrots and leek, chop the rest of the veggies, boil eggs and noodles and put it all together! You can upgrade the toppings I used and use any veggies you have on hand. Here is how to make the best healthy ramen step-by-step:

Sounds good, but since you are advertising this as a gluten-free meal you really should specify that the miso paste and Worcestershire sauce need to be gluten-free. Both of these condiments often contain gluten so it could be confusing for anyone not used to cooking gluten-free.

Also, is there a substitute for the Worcestershire sauce for people (like me) who live in countries where it is impossible to buy a gluten-free brand?

Thank you for pointing that out. I've made changes to the recipe. As for the Worcestershire sauce substitutes, try using fish sauce or a mix of soy sauce and ground anchovies. You can also make it yourself or order on Amazon. Hope it helps.
