Ramen is one of those things you think you can’t have when you’re eating “healthy,” but this high protein, Gluten Free Shrimp Miso Ramen changes all that. Think savory ramen broth full of noodles, complete with plump shrimp and a jammy egg on top! Pure heaven and perfect as a post-workout meal.

Did you know? Shitake mushrooms have a smoky flavor and are high in iron, making them a great vegan substitute for bacon.


The base of this recipe is Fortune brand’s Gluten Free Red Ramen Noodles by JSL Foods in Shoyu flavor. I am so happy to be working with this brand! Fortune Gluten Free noodles are brand NEW to market, shelf-stable and can be found in the Asian section in grocery stores (Albertsons, Von’s, Lucky’s, Safeway, Carr’s, Dierbergs Markets and Cub Foods).

Unlike most gluten-free noodles, these taste authentic, cook easily and don’t disintegrate when you cook them! My hubby loves Asian noodles, so he promptly asked if these could be part of our regular meal rotation 😉 JSL Foods is always coming out with new stuff, so be sure to keep up with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

The broth is everything when it comes to ramen. This broth combines low-sodium vegetable broth, miso paste, coconut aminos, and sriracha hot sauce. The miso paste really does add a lot, but if you can’t find it, just use an extra three tablespoons of coconut aminos. The coconut aminos can also be swapped for gluten-free tamari sauce or reduced sodium soy sauce. I like coconut aminos because they’re Paleo, lower in sodium, and a little sweeter than the others.

For add-ins, I went with shiitake mushrooms, baby bok choy (Chinese cabbage), garlic, green onion, shrimp, and soft-boiled egg. Feel free to use any kind of mushroom, or other veggies too! Oh and I highly recommend using raw peeled and deveined shrimp with the tail off. Chicken or tofu would work great in this recipe, too!

Go ahead and dress up your ramen further with more sriracha, more coconut aminos, add some fresh cilantro or mint… whatever you like… it’s your bowl 😉

Here is the printable recipe for this Gluten Free Shrimp Miso Ramen! I hope you’ll rate and comment below if you try it.

    Still on that soup kick and this one's a goodie! I made this Chicken Wild Rice Soup dairy free, gluten-free, macro-friendly, and loaded with flavor. It took several tries to perfect this soup, and it's a winner! It's got hearty wild rice, tender shredded chicken, delicious mushrooms and fresh herbs all in a thicker cream broth.

    I am feeling in the Valentine's Day spirit a little already (and always craving chocolate) so I made some vegan Protein Ferrero Rochers! They have a chocolate hazelnut filling with a roasted hazelnut in the center, surrounded by crushed vanilla wafer and coated in vegan milk chocolate. You can also roll them in crushed hazelnut like I did for extra crunch! While these aren't super high in protein, they offer a little boost. These chocolates are also lower in sugar, higher in fiber, and overall BIGGER than the world-famous Ferrero Rochers.

    I just love a good minestrone soup. However, minestrone is lacking in protein, at least not enough to make a balanced meal... so this High Protein Minestrone Soup was born! It's got Italian spices like basil and oregano, diced tomatoes in flavorful broth, tender pasta, kidney beans, chickpeas, carrots, celery, onion, fresh garlic, and Italian seasoned ground turkey for some extra protein. This soup is comforting, nourishing, and very filling! Bonus - it's also gluten free, dairy free, and macro-friendly.
