You guys! I’m so excited to share this post with you! Because HELLO GORGEOUS! I had so much fun shooting this. Plus this recipe is absolutely divine. I must admit, I am a sucker for those cheap ramen packages. Granted I haven’t had one in 10+ years, but man I can still imagine how it tastes like it was yesterday. For some reason those and cup of noodles are just so delicious to me. However, they are terrible for you. Have you seen the ingredient list on those things? Horrible. You probably can’t even pronounce half of the crap. Not to mention the amount of sodium in there.
That’s where I come in. HOMEMADE ramen! Genius right? Totes. You get to control what you put in this – but the best part? This is 100% natural and 100% delicious. Using fresh ingredients like onion, ginger, chives make this next level. Also have I mentioned how much I’m in love with tofu? What? Who says that? This girl. We started buying it maybe a month or two ago and had only had it in stir fry. So delicious. I wanted to make this vegetarian, but wanted to amp up the protein. Solution? Tofu! So yum! Of course if you aren’t vegetarian or don’t like tofu you don’t have to use it in the recipe you can easily omit or add chicken instead. Either way I hope you’ll give this a try. Best of all I had enough to share with another family AND save some for myself (which was convenient considering I had a little tummy bug the day after I made it). So delicious! Make it, love it, and then tell me about it!
