Red-Curry Ramen Soup

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!

Red-Curry Ramen Soup

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:

  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on low-medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add green beans and saute for approximately 2 minutes.
  3. Add mushrooms and continue to saute for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Set veggies aside, but keep in skillet.
  6. Prepare shirataki noodles according to package.
  7. Once the noodles are done, add them to veggie skillet and mix together.
  8. 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.
  9. Turn heat on a low simmer, and add vegetable broth to skillet. Stir soup and let broth heat up– approximately 3-4 minutes.
  10. Add salt and pepper to soup and stir (add more to taste as needed).
  11. Remove from heat as soon as broth is hot so noodles don’t overcook.
  12. 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.
