Ramen is often regards as unhealthy food. Since a bowl of ramen contents regularly so much salt, grease, carbohydrate and MSG. According to a website, the calories of ramen are vary, from 550 kcal to 1500kcal. The calorie mostly depends on slices of roast pork. Saltiness depends on the soup. Carbohydrates come from definitely the soup. I understand those elements make a bowl of ramen guilty pleasure.
I've been testing healthy ramen in these days. Ramen cooking has been popular since I've started to give a cooking classes. My recipe is quite healthy and the ingredients can be obtain universally. My ramen recipe is pork ramen, I believed pork is necessary ingredient to produce "Umami" in the soup. However, some people don't eat pork because of the custom and religious reason. I'd like to offer ramen which everybody could enjoy cook and eat together.
Chicken ramen is great for healthy choice and more likely acceptable ingredients for many people.
The ramen looks like Tonkotsu, Hakata ramen, actually I used soy milk and miso for the soup. The topping is cooked chicken breast and scallions.
This ramen tasted great! I will up the not-guilty ramen recipe later.. someday!
