A flavorful golden curry ramen that's quick and easy to make. Vegan, oil-free, gluten-free, and ready to eat within 30 minutes.
Curry ramen! I’m so excited to bring you this recipe because I’m enjoying it so much right now. It’s currently late March and 47 degrees out here in the Seattle area, so we’re still needing our warming soups. Plus, I love curry and I love ramen, so bringing them together makes me happy. And this Quick Curry Ramen is such an easy way to eat a lot of vegetables, too. To give you a clear idea, the picture below shows the ingredients divided into four servings. That’s how much veg you get - and it’s ready within 30 minutes!
With all the goods in this soup, it’s pretty filling. The best kind to fill up on, by the way - packed with nutrition. No need to have any sides for this meal. It does comfortably feed six people, maybe even eight. With four of us, including my husband who, as an athlete, is known to eat everything before it can be leftover, we actually had a little left for the next day even after he went back for seconds. So when you’re bordering on hangry, fill up on a big, comforting bowl of this nutritious curry ramen!
If you don’t have these exact veggies on hand but would like to make this soup, simply swap the veggies in this recipe with those you have. It’s fine! This would be great with different mushrooms than the little beech I used here, too. How about shiitake or button? Same with the noodles. Try spaghetti! This recipe is forgiving and fantastic.
