Pork ramen is one of the most beloved flavors you see in most ramen bars, but sometimes packaged versions can feel heavy and rich or too salty. These 10 healthy pork ramen recipes will leave you feeling satiated – and they all feature protein and veggies to keep you full and provide some nutrients.
Pork ramen, or tonkotsu ramen, was invented in the 20th century in Kurume, Japan. This ramen is typically rich, creamy, and salty, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be healthy! With a variety of veggies, herbs, and proteins, a pork ramen bowl can be full of nutrients, too.
Plus, these recipes use Mike’s Mighty Good ramen, which is made with organic noodles, not too much salt, and ingredients you can pronounce. Healthy ramen doesn’t necessarily need to taste healthy. We have two pork ramen flavors – classic pork tonkotsu and spicy pork tonkotsu.
