Ramen is one of the first foods I remember making on my own. My mom would let me pick from the many overly processed flavors at the supermarket. I’d go home, heat up a pot of water on the stove and place my brick of noodles inside. Once dissolved, I’d add that packet of flavoring (ahem, msg) and pat myself on the back for “making” my own meal.

Fast forward and I’m still making ramen but in a much more healthy way…

This recipe is full of vibrant veggies and yet it’s still super easy to make at home. It’s also extremely versatile. Don’t have carrots or cucumber? Broccoli, asparagus and a number of other vegetables would be great replacements! Mix and match and have fun with it.
