Ramen


Ramen is a delicious Japanese dish that can be made at home with just a few simple ingredients. It is a great meal for any time of day and can be easily tailored to your own taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 litre of water
  • 2 chicken breasts (skinless, boneless)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of mirin
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 4-6 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 package of ramen noodles
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Method

1. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside to cool.

2. In the same pot, add the onion, garlic, carrot, celery, and olive oil. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.

3. Add the soy sauce, mirin, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.

4. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

5. Add the ramen noodles and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until tender.

6. Add the beaten egg and green onions. Stir to combine.

7. Serve the ramen in bowls and enjoy!

Potential changes & improvements:

-Feel free to add other vegetables to the pot, such as mushrooms, bok choy, or bean sprouts.

-If you want a more flavourful broth, you could add a piece of konbu seaweed or some dried mushrooms.

-For a more hearty meal, you could add some cooked pork or shrimp.

Works Well With…

Ramen pairs well with many other dishes, such as rice, salad, or tempura.

Common Mistakes:

-One common mistake is to overcook the noodles. Be sure to cook them just until tender, as they will continue to cook in the hot broth.

-Another common mistake is to not add enough water to the pot. Be sure to add enough water so that the vegetables are covered and there is enough broth to cook the noodles.
