The entire world has quickly caught up with Japanese ramen. No matter where you are, you’ll find numerous versions of this preparation, thanks to creative cooks always looking to expand the cuisine. But don’t be fooled – just because everyone loves ramen and loves serving it doesn’t, at all, mean ramen is easy to make. It is arguably one of the most intricate preparations and can take hours to perfect a single bowl. That been said, there are hundreds of versions of this delicacy available all over, making sure every one’s palate is catered to. But if your palate lives as much in your eyes as it does on your tongue, we welcome you to the world of colorful ramen!
You read that right. If you are bored of the same bowl of ramen you have every time you go to ‘that Asian place’, let colorful ramen be your fix. Even though the variant started as a trend – and no wonder it did, the results are Instagram-worthy – the taste is what has enabled these bowls to stay and survive the dynamic world of culinary.
After the first look, you’ll be hesitant to try it out. Something that looks so full of color surely can’t be edible, right?
But rest assured, fellow foodie!
Most of the colorful ramen variants actually use au naturel ingredients for their vibrance – ingredients like carrot, beetroot and, a very welcome addition, spirulina! The rest of the ingredients in these brilliant colorful ramen bowls remain the same; you still enjoy the classic ramen you are in love with.
Only, with a twist. And oh, what a twist!
Just so you know, you don’t ‘need’ to find a restaurant that serves these hearty ramen variants. You can easily prepare it at home. All you need are some (natural) coloring agents and your everyday ramen ingredients. If you’re feeling a little lazy, you can also try including the colorful ingredient in your ready-to-eat clear ramen!
