Ramen That's Way Better for You
Whether you're eating wallet-friendly, Styrofoam-bowl-style ramen or something handmade by a Japanese chef, the base for the noodles is probably wheat flour. This vegified version is a filling alternative you'll have to try to believe. It calls for zucchini, which tastes light and bright, yet the dish has plenty of oomph, thanks to some powerhouse ingredients: miso paste, soy sauce, sesame oil, scallions, ginger and shiitake mushrooms. You can add tofu, quinoa, a soft-boiled egg, pork belly or shrimp for protein, if you'd like.
