Is Ramen Keto?
Traditional ramen uses noodles made from wheat flour which are not keto-friendly and contain higher amounts of carbohydrates and calories.
Our version of ramen is made with shirataki noodles which contain almost no net carbs. The broth is made by using chicken/beef broth and coconut aminos or soy sauce, which are both low in carbs and calories as well.
Keto Ramen Ingredients
You'll only need a total of 10 healthy ingredients to make this delicious low carb keto ramen soup.
- Shirataki noodles - you can grab konjac noodles at most stores and there are a huge variety available on Amazon.
- Broth - you can use chicken or beef broth for this recipe.
- Spinach - fresh spinach leaves.
- Mushrooms - button mushrooms or your favorite variety.
- Eggs - free range organic eggs if possible.
- Sesame oil - you'll need toasted sesame oil.
- Soy sauce - opt for low sodium soy sauce if you're worried about sodium intake. Can be substituted for amino acids as well.

- Sauce - we used a garlic chili sauce for this ramen.
- Radish - optionally top your keto ramen with slices of fresh radish.
How To Make Keto Ramen
Follow these four simple steps and you'll have a fresh bowl of keto ramen noodle soup in just 20 minutes!
To get started, bring a pot of water to a boil and add the eggs for 8 to 10 minutes until hard boiled.
In the meantime, heat the toasted sesame oil in a saucepan or wok and add the ginger and garlic chili sauce. Mix together to combine and then throw in the button mushrooms and spinach. Continue to cook over high heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
Rinse the shirataki noodles in a colander with cold water for 30 seconds. Add the chicken or beef broth, shirataki noodles and soy sauce to the saucepan of wok and then bring to a gentle simmer. Continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the noodles are fully cooked.
Portion the keto ramen into two bowls and top with sliced hard boiled eggs and fresh thinly sliced radish. Serve hot and enjoy!
- It is important to rinse the shirataki noodles well before cooking them, as this will help to reduce the fishy smell.
- Add the spinach and mushrooms to the broth just after seasoning it.
Best Topping Suggestions
This quick, easy ramen recipe is a favorite in the keto community. So healthy, delicious with lots of variations! Here are some topping ideas to make it your own:
Protein - feel free to add your favorite protein to your ramen as well. Leftover chicken, browned ground pork/beef, pulled pork, shrimp and tofu are all great options.
Red pepper flakes - to give it an extra kick!
Green onions - work well as a main ingredient or garnish.
Fish sauce - an excellent addition to any ramen because of its umami flavor.
Sesame oil - you can add sesame oil to give your ramen that toasted sesame flavor.
You can store the keto ramen components separately in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. It's best made fresh and I don't recommend you freeze it.
