Homemade Vegan Miso soup with Ramen noodles
When you hear Miso Soup, you may be thinking about those convenient comfort-food packets down at the corner store, stuffed full of MSG and dehydrated vegetables. Tasty, certainly, but not exactly what we’re looking for when we talk about Miso Ramen. It turns out this flavorful Japanese dish is one of the healthiest and easiest meals to make at home. Our version of Miso Ramen Soup is cruelty-free and packed full of protein, vegetables, and probiotics for your gut health. It’s also quick and easy to prepare. If you’ve cooked up some homemade vegetable broth ahead of time it will add a delicious flavor as your soup base, but you could use store-bought broth if you prefer as well. So the next time you’re craving some hot salty soup, stir up a batch of our homemade Miso Ramen Soup rather than opting for the packaged kind. You won’t be disappointed!
One of the key healthy ingredients in Miso Soup is the miso paste itself. Miso is one of the healthiest foods you can add to your diet, especially if you have IBS. The paste is made from soy beans that have been aging and fermenting with salt, koji, and rice or barley, resulting in a rich flavor. If you’re a little uneasy with the idea of eating an aged and fermented food, read this article about how beneficial fermented foods are for your gut health! In a nutshell, the fermentation process encourages the growth of healthy bacteria and enzymes in your gut while fighting harmful bacteria. Miso also contains all the essential amino acids, making it a complete protein, which is good news for vegans everywhere. The distinct taste of miso adds delicious flavor to Miso Ramen Soup, especially with the fresh ginger. Ginger, as you may know, is also a digestive aid because it stimulates the digestive juices in your mouth and gut. Together with the fermented paste, our Miso Ramen Soup boasts some glorious health benefits for vegans, those with digestive problems, and everyone else!
