Meet The Manufacturer: #1344: Lotus Foods Millet & Brown Rice Ramen

Here’s the second of three varieties of this new ‘Rice Ramen.’ This one is a bit different than the last as it boasts a red miso and uses millet and brown aspects for its noodle. What’s really great about these new products is that they’re Vegan friendly and gluten free – lots of people have asked me about gluten and vegetarian instants and I’m thinking these might be a nice one for those folks to try. Let’s check this one out!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Vegan friendly and gluten-free. To prepare, add the noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and simmer for 4 minutes, stirring gently. When noodles are soft, add contents of the soup base sachet and stir in. Enjoy!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added thin sliced pork sauteed with garlic salt, hard boiled egg and green onion. The noodles were neat – they had a great texture and a good chewiness with a slightly lighter gauge than your run of the mill instant. The broth was very nice – a luxuriant red miso that wasn’t overly strong or overly light but just right. Very nice! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 708953601038.
