This recipe was a long time in the making! In our Soy Sauce Chow Mein recipe, my dad mentioned that you could use any sort of dried noodle, even ramen noodles. So ever since, I've been curious about what my dad would do using ramen/instant noodles.
The Healthiest Ramen in the World?
Serendipitously, we connected with Tim and the team at Vite Ramen, which is a really, really cool small business that makes, arguably, the healthiest ramen in the world.
I'll touch on their story later, but just know that the noodles we're using, aka Naked Noods, are extremely healthy - they're made with a mixture of quinoa and wheat, and contain TWENTY THREE grams of protein per block, which is insane. To put it in context, that's equivalent to about half the protein you'd get from a typical chicken breast. If you're looking for something more ready to go with seasoning included, then Vite Ramen is a fully nutritionally complete meal on its own with up to THIRTY ONE grams of protein. Their flavor packets are made with real miso powder imported from Japan, real chicken, and etc.
