My cousin recently made homemade ramen and sent me a photo and I instantly wanted to recreate it and make it my own. We used prawns and soft-boiled eggs to give it some extra protein. The perfect dinner for a cool evening in, instead of going out for dinner.
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1tbsp freshly grated ginger
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1/4 lb shiitake mushrooms (or brown/white mushrooms)
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 packages of Soba noodles (or whatever noodles you prefer)
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 1 carrot, grated
- 2 tbsp chopped chives (or green onions)
Heat 1 tbsp sesame oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook. Whisk in chicken broth, mushrooms, soy sauce and 3 cups water. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until mushrooms are soft. Stir in noodles and cook through. Stir in spinach, carrot and chives until spinach begins to wilt. Serve immediately.
