Ramen
 

Ramen Ingredients

2 – 2 1/2 inches fresh ginger minced

3 garlic cloves minced

3-4 TBS toasted sesame oil

48 oz homemade or store bought broth

32 oz room temperature water

1 yellow onion cut In half and sliced thinly

1 packet preferred noodles (ramen or udon)

2-6 soft boiled eggs (about 8 minutes of boiling)

Fixings

Chicken

Mushrooms

Scallions

Shredded carrots

Jalapenos

Mung beans

Bock Choi

sriracha

Directions

1. In a large pot warm sesame oil and add minced garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant (about 2 minutes).

2. Add broth, water and onions, bring to a boil.

3. Meanwhile, In another pot, begin to boil your eggs. I find putting 1 TBS of baking soda in with the eggs helps the peeling process. Cook the eggs for 8-10 minutes and remove promptly.

4. Meanwhile begin to cut up your fixings and prepare them for the soup. For our chicken, we use the chicken from the broth we make but a rotisserie chicken will do the job just fine. As a tip we typically shred 1 large carrot, cut about 4-5 mushrooms, slice 1 jalapeño and one egg cut in 1/2 for each person.

5. By now your soup should be boiling. Add your noodles and cook as directed- usually 6-9 minutes.

To Serve-

1. Use tongs to remove desired amount of noodles for each bowl to be served. Be careful because it’s very HOT.

2. Use a ladle to spoon out the broth and fill bowl about 3/4’s of the way.

3. Add your fixings! Chicken, veggies, hot sauce etc..

I know it sounds like a lot but its not I PROMISE!

Remember this is a base and you can take the base and make it what you want like we did!

Broth

  • 1 Organic whole chicken

  • (Optional) 1 package of chicken feet (for the best outcome and or obtain a gelatin like substance when cooled) can also do backs and necks

  • 4 carrots

  • 4 celery

  • one onion

  • 4-5 Tbs Apple cider vinegar (I eyeball
    It)

Directions

– Fill pot with water (be sure not to over fill) add in all ingredients and let sit for one hour. Then turn oven on, cover and let broth cook for 2-3 hours-

– Turn stove off

-Let cool this is an important part! Don’t skip this!

– Strain and put into mason jars

– Refrigerate, Gel will not form until broth is cool and has been refrigerated.

Broth is good for about 10 days in fridge.

Warm when you are ready to drink or use in your favorite soup recipes, cooking rice, making chili etc..
