One of my greatest joys is creating amazing recipes based on childhood favorites! I received a request for a healthy version of ramen noodles and so this is what I came up with. My daughter inhaled this vegan gluten free ramen noodle soup!
When I was in college spaghetti and ramen noodles were staple foods! They are cheap, easy to make and not very healthy, apparently those are the three requirements for anything consumed by college students.
I also think it is important to find ways to create healthy recipes that kids will love to eat! Kids LOVE noodles, there is no doubt about that! My kids love noodles in anything! Ramen noodles are perfect kid food. Obviously ramen noodles are NOT healthy in the package. First, they are certainly not vegan, they contain MSG, white flour and a host of ingredients that shouldn't even be considered edible!
This was truly an enjoyable recipe to create. Of course I think you should add some spinach, carrots, celery, broccoli and other veggies to make this a truly healthy meal, but of course if you leave it as a traditional, yet vegan and gluten free version of ramen noodles it is certainly far healthier than the store bought version!
My greatest hope is that you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!
This recipe was created in response to a request, so if you have a favorite food you want a healthy version of let me know and I will create it for you!
Examples of recipes I've created: Cracklin oat bran, pop tarts, doritos, girl scout thin mints......
