Gluten-Free Shoyu Ramen

January is such a cold month, especially, in some places where the snow has truly piled up high. Thankfully, here in Phoenix, Arizona, we don’t have snow! Even still, however, it’s still super chilly for us thin-blooded native Arizonans. So, no matter where you are, here is a nice warm soup recipe to help you get to Spring! Enjoy unique and delicious flavors from Japan in this authentic Gluten-Free Shoyu Ramen.

Japanese food has gained popularity in the United States with tasty dishes like sushi, miso soup, and ramen. As well, personally, I love Japanese food! Ramen is one of my favorite dishes (after sushi!), but it’s usually a very gluten-heavy dish. From the wheat noodles to the gluten in soy sauce, it has really hurt my gluten-sensitive body in the past. This recipe is a good one if you are like me, a gluten-free foodie.

Ingredient Hunting

In this recipe, some ingredients may not be on your regular shopping list. However, they can be easily located at your local Asian Market and possibly even your regular grocery store. If you prefer, you can also find some of these ingredients on Amazon. For the Sautéed Lotus Root, the original recipe author has a recipe that I have linked if you want to be adventurous!

Author: Remy Park



  • 4 cups Veggie Broth
  • 1-2 pieces Dried Kombu seaweed
  • 6-10 Dried Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 1-2 tbsp Tamari or Liquid Aminos


  • 1 serving Gluten-Free Ramen Noodles
  • 1/4 cup Shimeji Mushrooms or mushrooms of choice
  • 1 serving Tempeh or Tofu grilled
  • Other Veggies of Choice bok choy, corn, spinach, carrots, etc.


  • 1/3 cup Sautéed Lotus Root
  • 1 sheet Nori seaweed
  • Shichimi Togarashi Japanese pepper spice
  • Scallions to top
  • 1 tsp Toasted Sesame Oil


  • In a saucepan, bring veggie broth to a boil, and add dried kombu and shiitake mushrooms. Allow to boil for about 10 minutes on low heat, and steep while you prep your ingredients. If you have time, let ingredients steep in advance for extra flavour.
  • When ready to serve, heat on low and add tamari to taste. Try to avoid bringing broth to a boil once tamari is added.
  • Boil ramen noodles and shimeji mushrooms and strain.
  • To serve, add noodles to a serving bowl, and toppings like mushrooms, lotus root, tempeh, and any additional veggies.
  • Pour soup over top of noodles.
  • Garnish with scallions, shichimi togarashi and nori. Enjoy!


Tip: I recommend not cooking noodles far in advance or saving cooked noodles for leftovers, as the texture will not stay in tact.
Original Recipe:

The original recipe author notes that the shiitake and kombu are being used to infuse flavor into the broth. The longer it is allowed to steep, the deeper and richer the Ramen broth will become. This makes it taste more like the traditional and proper way authentic Shoyu Ramen should taste.

I hope you enjoy this yummy Ramen recipe! Check out my past recipes for more healthy cooking inspiration. Come back next week for some delicious salad dressings!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
