Ramen soup it seems is the latest popular soup to go out and eat.
For the gluten free folks ramen soup is not something we could eat.
Well, now you can!
Lotus Foods makes a few varieties of gluten free ramen now, and in fact I recently found a big package of it at Costco.
This soup is best when you’ve allowed it to simmer for at least an hour. This allows the larger pieces of lemon grass, ginger, chile and lime to really infuse the broth.
This would be a good soup to serve when you have company for you could put a variety of garnishes and add-ins in small bowls on the table and your guests could add what they want.
