Perfectly tasty, those Keto Ramen Chicken Noodles are filled with flavors all over. Add whatever you want and make it as colorful you wish, it will never be the same as last time. Loved by all, those Keto Ramen Noodles are a must on a regular basis.
What is Ramen?
Ramen is a Japanese whole meal in one, which consists of noodles, soup, various Japanese veggies, sprouts, and some protein. Topped with Broth and spiced up with soja sauce. it gives you not only look, but as well a feel and taste of Asia.
In the last century, it has become a very popular type of dish all over the world.
Especially popular are prepacked instant noodles. Here all you have to do is boil the water, add spices and the dry version of noodles. This you can now see in every single shop and it is pretty famous with our young generation or people, who do not have time to cook or are just not bothered. It also costs only a few pennies and can be taken to work or eaten anywhere on the go.
Are Keto Ramen Chicken Noodles as good as they Look?
In our previous lifestyle, we used to go with my husband for lunch to one restaurant only. And that is because the ramen, they used to serve, was just perfect. Throughout the whole winter, I used to order a big bowl of ramen and they used to warm me up instantly. I just so loved them.
After our Low Carb transformation, I have kind of left them be. But every time I have walked around that restaurant, I could not stop refreshing my memories they serve.
But for some reason, I had no idea I would be able to make them at home. Until one day, when I had a cold and needed something really warm and a bit spicy. On top of that, I was so hungry. So I needed something really warm and filling. And since we have shirataki always at home, I thought that would be a better option as a plain Bone Broth. I have made my first kind of bone broth with noodles soup. Later on, I have seen someone adding an egg into the soup. And so on and so on. In the end, we do make those Ramen Noodle soups on a regular basis as a normal dinner option. Always a winner.
What are Shirataki Noodles?
Shirataki noodles are a perfect replacement in Keto or Low Carb Lifestyle instead of a normal noodles made from flour. They can be used exactly the same as any other noodles, in dishes you normally used them in.
Made from Konjak Roots, they do not contain any carbohydrates and therefore can be added in any amount. They do not even contain many calories or anything else. So use it as much as you can to fill you up.
Shirataki Noodles are sold in a water packed container, where you have to make sure to rinse them properly before use. The liquid, they are in, is with a really strong fishy flavor and if not rinsed properly, you will never touch them again.
I normally wash them under the hot water and add into the desired dish. Let it cook a bit with the dish, where they will soak up all the perfect flavor from a dish and will be irresistible.
I have also made a whole post about various Low carb and Keto Pasta Alternatives.
For a rice replacement, we use normal Shirataki, but for noodles options, I have found Tofu Shirataki, which are a bit tastier and more to our liking. They do contain minimum carbs from Tofu and a bit of calorie, but since we are not doing this lifestyle because of weight loss, it really does not matter.
Tofu Shirataki are much softer compare to pure shirataki or Miracle noodles as some calls them. Also, the color is not completely see-through, but are a bit on a whiter side. Or I would say, almost the same as the real pasta looking ones.
Where do you buy Tofu Shirataki Noodles?
First time I have discovered Tofu Shirataki actually exist, was when we lived in Doha ( Qatar). Bought them once, tried them and we all fell in love with them. In Doha, I used to buy them on a regular basis in a regular supermarket and had them at least one to two times a week. Sweet or Savory, you name it.
I used them as a replacement of any noodle dish. A great advantage was, that at that time, they had all of the different variations and shapes. As I can recall, they had 5 different shapes, from soup noodles through more softer compared to a pure thin to tagliatelle up to a rice version.
Back to Europe
Later on, as we have moved back to Europe, I have kind of thought that is it. I will never see them again. I have seen all of the Miracle Noodles in healthy shops. But all of them were just a pure Konjak shirataki, which we have already stopped liking.
Then once I have gone to Naschmarkt here in Vienna, which is a Food market, where you get goods from all over the world. I have discovered them again in Asian shops. You have no idea how excited I was. And you can as well just imagine how many I bought.
As I am used to and have seen it on several occasions, once you find something you love, it will not be sold forever. And the same I thought of those Tofu Shirataki. So our fridge used to be filled with them really fully. And I was so right. Since there was not a big demand, they have stopped shipping all of the varieties and stayed only with Soup Noodles.
Excitement moved to disappointment
In the beginning, I was really upset, but in the end. What can I do? I am glad they at least have one variation. We can never get spoiled enough, Can we?
And if I really, really need tagliatelle or any other shape I just use different vegetables. Just look at those perfectly made Asparagus Tagliatelle Noodles. Also, Zucchinis are a perfect choice for noodles. I mean varieties are what we are after at the end. A whole post on different variations of Keto or Low Carb Pasta for you.
Or you can make your own Noodles. As an example are our Keto Fiber Noodles we have made just recently.
Bone Broth as a liquid Base for Keto Ramen Chicken Noodles Recipe.
Since I do have Bone Broth at home all the time and make it on a regular base, making ramen with it is just an easy and a quick choice.
Although on the pictures, it might look really difficult it is not. Not at all. And you can use your chicken leftovers from the previous day if you like. All you have to do is assemble the plate with shirataki and veggies you wish. Add boiling Bone Broth into it and garnish with boiled egg and few pieces of avocado. That’s that. That is all you need and your dinner is more thane perfect.
7 Steps on how to make Keto Ramen Chicken Noodles Recipe.
Let me not disappoint you with so much writing and let us go straight into a step by step instruction on how to make this lovely Ramen dish in our Low Carb and Keto Lifestyle.
First Step: Prepare all of the ingredients.
Those do not need to be exact. The most important are noodles, Bone Broth, something green, something mushroomy, protein such as beef, chicken or poultry, and a few Chinese veggies to give it the feel and look.
Second step: Rinse your Shirataki
This part is extremely important. As I have already mentioned, most of the Shirataki Noodles are packed in a liquid. This liquid has got a very strong fishy smell. If you do not rinse them properly, you will transfer that smell onto your dish and it will not be pleasant.
So again, Rinse entirely. I do rinse it normally under the hot water, to make sure all of the liquid they were packed in, is gone fully.
Third Step: Roast Shirataki
Roast the Shirataki Noodles on a pan with a bit of oil. This will give the noodles more pasta like taste and once ramen is assembled, it tastes much much better. I sometimes add a bit of salt and pepper, especially if I do know, I am going to eat them separately.
Fourth step: prepare your protein
You can use leftover meat from the previous day, or just take a few pieces and cook them on a pan as you would normally for any other dishes.
Fifth Step: Boil your veggies
Place all of the veggies you are planning to use into the boiling water and let it cook for 1-2minutes. This will make them softer and will give them a lovely green color. If you are using mushrooms, which are bigger, place them at first, since those needs to be cooked a bit longer.
Sixth step: Rinse all under cold water
Once your veggies are softer, place them into a strainer and quickly run through with cold water. That will retain the color and the veggies will stop cooking immediately. The last thing you want is to have overcooked veggies in this recipe.
Seventh Step: Assemble
Now it is time to assemble it all. Make sure all of the ingredients (except avocado) are warm and your broth is boiling hot.
Have a look at the video I have made for more detailed assembly.
Can you store Ramen noodles?
I personally like to make them fresh, since using various Chinese mushrooms, eggs, and avocados, will not even look nice in a few hours. But I buy Chinese of the ingredients in bulk and take every evening a few pieces from each to have it fully fresh. And mushrooms, eggs, and avocados need to be fresh as well. Bone Broth is stored in the fridge or freezer, so that is always ready.
And if not, in an Instant Pot, you can have Bone Broth done in mere as 2 Hrs.
