What makes this ramen so delicious is all the toppings that provide a crunchy contrast to the silky warmth of the noodles and broth. If you don’t have all of our suggested toppings on hand, get creative—fried onions, raw bean sprouts, seaweed (nori), even roasted peanuts, all work!
We made this recipe vegetarian, but you could replace the tofu with shredded chicken and the vegetable stock/broth with chicken broth.
We’re celebrating National Curry Week in the UK with a new recipe for Thai Curry Ramen. It will take you less than 30 minutes to whip up a restaurant-worthy meal!
