    uhmmm, chicken broth would invalidate the vegetarian tag. Good grief…

    This soup is not vegetarian. It calls for chicken broth. Obviously, vegetable broth can be used here, but it is the principle that you’re labeling the recipe as vegetarian and it clearly includes a non-vegetarian ingredient. That said, I think it sounds like a lovely recipe, and I look forward to trying it.

    Hi Angelina and Allison, thanks for bringing this to our attention. As you mentioned, vegetable broth may be substituted for the chicken broth to make this a vegetarian dish. We have updated the recipe accordingly and apologize for the confusion. Hope you enjoy!

    Tomatoes? How can you call this ramen? Just call it spaghetti. This is kind of insulting to asians everywhere.

    I had made the same mistake once unintentionally about chicken broth in a vegetable soup. I offered it to a vegetarian telling her it was just vegetables. While she was eating it she casually asked me what were the ingredients. When I started telling her, she dropped her spoon and started to cry. I had no idea what was wrong. Then she told me anything with chicken broth in it is NOT vegetarian.Now I get it.Lol

    How is it insulting to Asians Peter? I’m Asian myself and I don’t find any problem with this recipe. It’s totally normal for a cook to make changes to recipes.
