The delicious Japanese soup is something to be enjoyed to it’s fullest. However, the instant ramen packets are not a good representation of the classic ramen, nor are they low-carb. So for this version of a quick ramen – a 30 minute ramen – we will make it as low-carb as possible by using low-carb noodles. Now, you can enjoy an unbelievable broth that comes second only to ramen that takes an entire day to make! This recipe can also be made vegetarian by using vegetable stock instead of chicken broth.
