How to Make Easy Ramen Noodle Soup
So how do you make the BEST, easy, and quick ramen soup? Using your gluten free and amazing Millet and Brown Rice Noodles from Thrive Market (or whatever gluten free ramen noodles you prefer), boil them according to the package instructions. When they are done make sure to rinse in cold water.
While they are cooking, get started on that delicious broth. This broth uses chicken broth (vegetable broth works too if you want it to be vegan) and Tamari soy sauce. Tamari soy sauce is the gluten free version of soy sauce but it is also a richer and darker soy sauce than the regular kind. Honestly, use it even if you aren't gluten free. It's just that good.
In a large sauce pot, saute your veggies (onions, sliced mushrooms, diced carrots, peas...) in some coconut oil. Once those have cooked almost all the way through and are softening, add your broth and Tamari. Heat on medium heat and add your ginger and umami. The umami seasoning gives this dish that real depth of flavor that is so yummy in a homemade real ramen noodle soup.
Serve noodles in a bowl and pour the broth mixture over the top until it resembles noodle soup. To store this away for left overs, keep the noodles and the broth mixture seperate. This way the the noodles don't become soggy and gross.
Enjoy with a soft boiled egg, our favorite- avocado, chicken, pork, fish, or any other delicious toppings you can think of!
