Today I am going to be making “Vegan” Tonkotsu Ramen.

When it comes to Healthy eating, Ramen is the last thing we choose.

But when it comes to Happy Eating, things are a little bit different.

We all love Tonkotsu Ramen; we would enjoy the rich and creamy soup with bouncy noodles.

But it’s high in calories and fat, so we can’t eat it quite often.

So I make a healthier version of Tonkotsu Ramen with “Nikumiso” spicy vegan meat topping.

We can fill both nutrition and satisfaction with this easy noodle soup recipe.

If you make the topping beforehand, it will be ready in less than 10 minutes!

Let’s start Happy Eating with me!
