What You will Need to Spruce Up Your Instant Ramen
Honestly you can always spruce instant ramen even if its with a few ingredients. These are the ingredients that make this packaged ramen from ok to a bowl of deliciousness!
- Instant Ramen - I usually get my ramen at the Asian market and you can use whichever brand you like. I prefer the spicy ones.
- Make your own broth - I use Vegetable Broth paste to make my own broth. I add it to 8 cups of water to make the ramen.
- Seasonings - I use about 1 tbsp. of adobo (find my recipe here) and 1 tbsp. of the packet of seasoning from the ramen. I try to cut the sodium intake this way.
- Veggies - I like to add Spinach and Carrots. Also you can add Bok Choy, Arugula, Corn, Radishes, Napa Cabbage, Endives, Avocado, the options are endless.
- Protein - While you can keep your ramen vegetarian or vegan by adding Tofu or meat substitute. I like pork belly, and pork or chicken katsu. For this recipe I swapped the katsu for Gorton's Seafood Beer Battered Fish Fillets. They are a great option and are good for the environment too. They are sustainably caught. Visit their website: www.gortons.com for availability at your local grocer.
- Toppings- These are a must for a great ramen. I add boil eggs, scallions (using the green and white part), cilantro and red pepper flakes. You can add fried red onion flakes, cheese, avocado, sriracha.
- Sesame oil - I use pure sesame oil. You want to use high quality sesame oil.
Cooking & Putting Together The Ramen
- Begin by placing 4 Beer Battered Fish fillets in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook according to directions.
- In a 4 qt Dutch oven, pour water, broth, seasoning, scallions and cilantro.
- Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add Ramen Noodles. Simmer until noodles are cooked. (do not overcook or they will turn into mush)
- In a bowl add noodles and broth.
- Top with boiled eggs, cilantro, scallions, carrots, spinach and red pepper flakes. Drizzle additional Sesame oil.
This serves 2 people. You can always double the recipe.
