Yummy Ramen

So i love ramen. Especially right now where it is still winter and we are expecting another dump of snow tomorrow. My entire family loves ramen when it is this cold and i have a super easy recipe. 

First i cut up my vegetables. i put shitake mushrooms, onions, carrots and chives. But you can put whatever’s in your fridge or whatever is your favorite. I usually put a little oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion and mushroom. I buy the carrots in the bag that are already thinly sliced. 

You can put leftover meat or i just buy either cooked brisket or cooked pork and saute it in a pan with chinese five spice and a little peanut oil. 

i have my veges and meat in seperate bowls. i have little kids so its easier for picky eaters. 

Broth - super easy. In a pot, put one and a half tablespoon of miso paste, one chicken bouillon and water. If you like it spicey you can add some siracha sauce or chili garlic paste (my favourite). You can leave this simmering on the stove. 

When you’re ready to eat then i boil my ramen (that way it doesn’t get mushy or sticky). i can never find the right noodles to use. So i buy the steamed noodles in the cold section and boil it with a little baking soda. it helps give it a nice ramen like texture. 

And then assemble! Ramen at the bottom, then veges and meat and i pour the broth over it. Garnish with chives or cilantro. 

BEST WINTER MEAL EVER. no matter how much i make we never have left overs. Hope you try it and enjoy!

I'm out of likes right now, but that looks AMAZING!  So much better than when I do the store bought cheap raman noodles!  Being fair I will doctor mine up with the carrots, onions, and mushrooms.  The other thing that I do is when it's boiling cracking an egg or two into the soup and stirring that into the soup.  

If you don't mind my asking, where are you from, because that looks incredibly authentically Asian... but just watch you're from Iceland, or Africa or something...

Thanks! Sorry I took so long to reply. We’ve been on holiday in Mexico for the past week and the resort we were at had the option to unplug. So we did. But I’m actually flying back right now and I Told the hubby i couldn’t wait and needed to know the price of xrp so I got wifi onboard. I nearly started screaming when I saw the price. I literally shoved the iPad in the hubbys face and started clapping. The other passengers looked at me kinda weird. Sorry...I just had to share...I’m so excited! I bull runs. They are awesome. 

Okay...so back to the recipe. I like the idea of dropping an egg into it...will do that next time. We’re originally from the Caribbean but have been living in Canada for more than a decade. So no....it’s not authentically Asian, but it is a hybrid Caribbean/Canadian/whatever recipes I find in YouTube and I mash it all together.
