Feel good vegetarian miso ramen

Feel good vegetarian miso ramen

"I developed this recipe to be the closest version of the restaurant ramen I’ve come to love so much for its ability to pick me up no matter the weather or the mood—and eating it reminds me of all the equally enriching conversations I’ve had in crowded ramen restaurants. Ramen is a varied, complex Japanese soup that chefs spend years mastering, so 100% truly authentic, this recipe is not. Instead, here’s a recipe that you can achieve at home with less ingredients, in a relatively short amount of time. Thanks to countless hours spent researching (including on the Youtube channel ‘Just One Cookbook’ by Nami, who gave me the decisive tip for the creamiest possible of vegan broths: soy milk) and even more hours spent testing, I’ve arrived at this vegetarian recipe, one that I’m happy with and I hope serves you as much! You can find dried kombu, dried shiitake mushrooms, and dried or fresh ramen noodles in most Asian supermarkets. While you’re there, I recommend picking up Gomasio, Japanese toasted sesame salt, which is excellent for finishing the dish!

    In a frying pan roast the sesame seeds until golden brown. Add to a food processor and pulse or grind finely with a mortar and pestle. Finely chop ginger and garlic, slice scallions into fine rings, separating the whites from the greens. Slice the fresh shiitake mushrooms and slice cut the pak choi lengthwise into quarters. Soft-boil the eggs by adding them to a saucepan boiling water and letting cook 6.5 min. before draining, and cooling under cold running water.
