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!

  1. Hi Brandie,
    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.

    I enjoy Ramen noodles without the packet and just cook the noodles then put butter and sprinkle Parm. cheese on them! Yummy!!!

    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.
