In most cases, traditional ramen would be out of the question on a ketogenic meal plan, but rest assured you will never have to go without this warm and cozy soup ever again. Replacing the noodles with veggies or shirataki noodles will help reduce those carbs and keep you in a fat burning ketosis mode. A huge bonus to making this dish right in your own home is you can control ingredients, making this one of the healthiest bowls of soup you will ever have.
Some of the ingredients in this dish are:
- Bone broth
- Chili Paste
One of the reasons why this ramen is so healthful is the use of bone broth as the base. This specific type of broth is made up of a very specific type of collagen only found within bones and connective tissues.
What are the health benefits of collagen?
#1 Leaky Gut
The abundant collagen found within bone broth can help improve symptoms of leaky gut and digestive issues such as IBS. Amino acids such as proline and glycine heal damaged cell walls found within the stomach lining. When these gaps are sealed, inflammation and bacteria in the stomach is reduced.
#2 Healthy Skin
Collagen is responsible for the formation of elastin and other compounds within the skin that keep it looking youthful. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging.
#3 Joint Health
Collagen is found within all bones, joints, skin, tendons, cartilage, and bone marrow. As we age, cartilage begins to break down. The collagen found within bone broth will help replenish and restore that cartilage. The amino acids found within collagen helps reduce pain, inflammation, and better joint mobility.
So the next time a recipe calls for some type of stock for the liquid, replace it with bone broth as this recipe has done. You will reap far more nutritional benefits and your dishes will have a much deeper and rich flavor.. Also, the addition of vegetables, spices, and seasonings in this ramen make this one of the healthiest bowls of soup you will ever have. It is easily customizable and works well as meal to use up vegetables that are on the verge of spoiling.Print

What are these noodles and where do I find them please
Hi Denise, shirataki noodles are made from konjac yam. It’s available at any health foods stores or some grocery stores.
What type of Shirataki noodles? Fettuccine?
Hi Leslie, it’s spaghetti noodles.
My girlfriend and I made this last night for the first time.
We were both *very* pleased by the way it turned out.
The only significant adjustment we made to the recipe was excluding ginger, (since neither of us are fans of that) and we used Swanson beef broth instead of being unable to find bone broth at the last minute.
We used 2 packs of shirataki noodles, rinsed them well, then boiled them for several minutes to help soften them up a bit, before being drained and combined with the broth, the flavor of which transferred well to the noodles.
Along with the other listed ingredients, we added (to the broth) some leftover steak, (thinly sliced) and some medium-size shrimp to round out the protein.
We garnished the ramen with hard boiled egg slices, green onion bits and sesame seeds.
We’re already looking forward to making this again!
Next time though, we’ll probably go with low-sodium soy sauce and skip the teaspoon of salt, since the broth is already plenty flavorful and salty.
We were almost surprised by how much of fiery kick was generated by just *one teaspoon* of chili paste. We both enjoy hot & spicy food, but next time we might bump the chili paste down a notch.
This is a meal that’s very easy to get creative with.
I was wondering if anyone has stored & eaten leftovers of this? I travel and am wondering if this is something I can make ahead and travel with (in a cooler of course) and heat up at meal time
