Another classic dish — ramen, done up with some fresh veggie ingredients and made red-curry style to add a little bit of a spicy kick!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 bag of shirataki spaghetti noodles*
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen green beans (either way preferably organic — I also think fresh works better for this recipe but either is still fine)
- 1/4 white onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup scallion, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped (white button or cremini works well — I used white button)
- 1 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
- 2 tablespoons red-curry paste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
What to Do:
- In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on low-medium heat.
- Once hot, add green beans and saute for approximately 2 minutes.
- Add mushrooms and continue to saute for another 2-3 minutes.
- Add in white onion and scallion and continue to saute for another minute or two, until all veggies are tender and white onion is translucent.
- Set veggies aside, but keep in skillet.
- Prepare shirataki noodles according to package.
- Once the noodles are done, add them to veggie skillet and mix together.
- Add 2 tablespoons of red-curry paste to skillet and mix, covering all noodles and veggies. If you want, you can add another tablespoon of the curry paste.
- Turn heat on a low simmer, and add vegetable broth to skillet. Stir soup and let broth heat up– approximately 3-4 minutes.
- Add salt and pepper to soup and stir (add more to taste as needed).
- Remove from heat as soon as broth is hot so noodles don’t overcook.
- Transfer ramen to serving bowl. Bon appetit!
* This pasta is made from the Japanese konjac yam. There are tons of brands out there and you can get a bag for pretty cheap online. They also have different types of noodles — from angel hair to fettuccine. Make sure you get the spaghetti variety, as they are the most similar to ramen, even though they aren’t authentic ramen noodles. I bought mine in a fancy health food spot, so the same size bag I’m seeing online ran me about $6. But I really wanted to try them and bought it on a whim– so live and learn. As I shop around I’m sure I’ll find it cheaper somewhere the next time I buy them. Also, if you buy it online for a cheaper price, depending on your shipping costs, it could end up being around the same $6 I paid anyhow.
