Gluten-Free Ramen Recipe

This recipe calls for medium-boiled eggs and blanched baby bok choy (you can blanch it with the noodles for 2 minutes), so plan accordingly. Also, to make the broth in a pressure cooker, add 10 cups of water and the chicken bones, shiitake mushrooms, kombu, apple cider vinegar, carrots, garlic, ginger, and green onions to the insert (do not add the tamari). Cook at high pressure for 45 minutes, then quickly release the pressure. Remove the lid and switch to the sauté function. Add the tamari and boil until the broth has reduced by 1 to 2 inches, about 30 minutes. You should end up with about 2 quarts of broth.

    But how do you make gluten free ramen? I look all over the internet and it only show regular recipes that are already gluten free like this one called ramen, but never do they show you how to make ramen. I wouldnt need a recipe if the solution is go to a restaurant or just buy processed pre-made food.

    Hello, this looks delicious! I was wondering what advice you had for making it vegetarian (or pescatarian)? Thanks!

    Hello, Eloise! Is there a broth you like to use? I would use that, if so, instead of water. And of course skip the chicken bones and the egg, if desired. Let me know if you try it and what you think!
