If you know me, then you know how much I LOVE Thai food. Which inspired this insanely flavored ramen.

This soup is so good and packed with so much flavor with spicy red curry, creamy coconut milk,, fresh herbs like cilantro, garlic, basil and lime! The perfect meal for a rainy day! This ramen has no meat, but you can pair it with your favorite protein!

Start with fresh veggies. The red curry paired with fresh herbs; chopped cilantro, fresh basil, green onions, ginger, garlic and lime truly elevated everything and brought this recipe to life. It’s the perfect way to get rid of those herbs that are about to go bad in the bottom of your fridge..
