A Spiralized Ramen
Whether you're eating Styrofoam-bowl-style ramen or something handmade by a Japanese chef, the noodles themselves are probably made from wheat flour. This vegetable version is a satisfying low-carb stand-in you have to taste to believe. It uses spiralized zucchini as the noodles, which are 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 and a soft-boiled egg or shrimp for protein, if you'd like.
