Heya guys an gals,<br><br>
I gotta know...is there a vegetarian ramen? and i need it to be ABSOLUTE sure, like explain me all the ingredients please. thanks ;D<br><br><br>
also, is El Paso (see <a href="http://www.meijer.com/assets/product_images/styles/xlarge/1001029_046000721835_A_400.jpg0" target="_blank">red</a> and <a href="http://www.wegmans.com/prodimg/012/200/046000861012.jpg" target="_blank">green</a>) vegetarian? I've stopped using it, my biggest worry is it contains chicken in some form(fat, flavoring, broth). i've stopped using it, but if it is vegan/vegetarian, thats great, cuz tortillas baked in it taste pretty nummy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br>

Top Ramen Oriental flavor is vegetarian, but I know myself and a few other members of this board use normal ramen noodles and vegetable broth.

The El Paso Enchilada sauces are vegetarian too: <a href="http://www.walmart.com/ip/Old-El-Paso-Mild-Green-Chile-Enchilada-Sauce-10-oz/10313186" target="_blank">http://www.walmart.com/ip/Old-El-Pas...10-oz/10313186</a><br><a href="http://www.walmart.com/ip/Old-El-Paso-Medium-Enchilada-Sauce-10-oz/10313187" target="_blank">http://www.walmart.com/ip/Old-El-Pas...10-oz/10313187</a><br><br>
If you are concerned with trace ingredients I would contact the company about the "natural flavor" ingredient, otherwise these are all veg.<br><br>
Here is the ingredients for the Oriental flavor Top Ramen: <a href="http://www.meijer.com/s/nissin-top-ramen-ramen-noodle-soup-oriental-flavor-24-packages-3-oz-ea/_/R-118597" target="_blank">http://www.meijer.com/s/nissin-top-r...-ea/_/R-118597</a>

You just have to get used to reading labels. Chicken fat/broth will be listed as such. If you're not sure about an ingredient, you can check it on <a href="http://www.vrg.org/ingredients/index.php" target="_blank">the VRG guide to food ingredients</a> or google it (but consider the results carefully -- only trust something that seems authoritative). And, as luvourmother said, if something is still ambiguous, you can write to the company (or google and see if someone else has).

If you look at the kosher section, the Tradition brand of vegetable cup noodle in the styrofoam cups are vegetarian. I don't care for it myself so I usually get Top Ramen or the Taiwanese vegetarian (usually steamed shiitake or mushroom flavor) brands from Asian markets when I could find them.

Thanks guys, the thing im most iffy about is the "natural flavoring", i know that is a potential red flag :/<br><br>

Dang, ramen enchiladas sounds tasty. To the kitchen!<br><br>
Wait, I don't actually have any ramen noodles ...<br><br>
I know you weren't talking about COMBINING them, but sounds like a dandy experiment.

I always drained the noodles and then stirred the powder into the wet noodles, so it came out like a noodle dish instead of a soup.
