DIY Ramen Bowls
by Brenda Langton, Tastemaker in Residence - Recipe By: Market Chef Nettie Colón
For the broth:
8 cups of Abrothecary Ramen Broth
2 carrots peeled and sliced thin or mandolin into thin strips
1 small bunch chopped bitter greens, kale, cabbage or bok choi
2 zucchinis sliced thin
any other vegetable of your liking that is available at the farmers market (mushrooms, beets, peas, etc, corn)
For the noodles:
2 packages of Dumpling & Strand ramen noodles (regular or GF)
For the toppings:
1 bunch green onions
- Broth – Bring broth to a boil, then lower heat, add the market vegetables of your choice and simmer, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are cooked to your liking. If needed you can adjust seasoning with a drizzle of soy sauce.
- Noodles: Bring water to a boil. If you want you may add salt at this point. Drop the ramen in the boiling water and gently stir. Ramen will cook in 3 minutes so have a colander or strainer ready to drain the noodles when they are done. Set noodles aside. Make sure to cook noodles closer to time of serving the ramen to prevent from getting cold or sticking together.
- Toppings – Hard boil eggs, green onions, sesame oil.
- Assembly – Portion noodles into 4 bowls, ladle the ramen broth with the vegetables into each bowl and top with egg, green onions, a drizzle of sesame oil and any other garnish that you may like.
