A DELICIOUS RAMEN RECIPE
Ramen noodles will take on the flavor of whatever you simmer them in. So I’m using a flavorful vegetable broth along with some red curry paste. This was kind of an experiment for me because I’ve never really used curry paste before. But I saw it in the Asian food aisle of my grocery store and started reading the ingredients on the back.
WHAT IS CURRY PASTE?
It’s nothing mystical. It’s just ground red chilies, lemon grass, pepper and garlic and some other seasoning. The more curry paste you add, the spicier your soup broth will become.Red curry paste can usually be found in the Asian food aisle of your grocery store. Can’t find red curry paste? Just go with tomato paste and if you want to spice it up, stir in some red pepper flakes. 🙂 This turned out amazing!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

- vegetable broth
- ramen noodles (throw away the seasoning packets)

HOW TO MAKE RAMEN NOODLE BOWLS:
In a large, wide-bottomed pot or a dutch oven, sauté red peppers, carrots, garlic, and green onions in sesame oil over medium heat until soft. Remove from pot and set aside.
In the same pot, boil vegetable broth, then drop in noodles. Cook over high heat until they soften and break apart.
Then pour vegetables back in. Stir in red curry paste, reduce heat to medium, and let simmer for 20 minutes. If your liquid begins to boil, turn heat down to medium-low.
When fully cooked, serve in a bowl and top with additional sliced green onions.

Is there a way to remove the skins from peppers without roasting them? I love peppers but can’t eat them anymore because of the skins. Thanks so much.
Hi Kris, the only way I know how is to roast them. You could try to just use a vegetable peeler and see if that works!
Can I substitute chicken broth for vegetable broth?
It is the best thing I ever tasted in my life!!
Love it!! Thank you Jalia!
I enjoy Ramen noodles without the packet and just cook the noodles then put butter and sprinkle Parm. cheese on them! Yummy!!!
I like these kinds of soups very much. It reminds me trip to China and Vietnam. It should be spicy.
Hi! If you want to feel less ‘bad’ about your ramen use Koyo brand! Organic and a good amount of protein. Also, the packets are really good. A bit of sodium but all natural/organic ingredients.
