Homemade Ramen

My homemade ramen is hot, buttery and comforting yet fast, easy and healthy.  It sounds too good to be true yet here it is, to be enjoyed time and time again with the most minimal of efforts.  You could be from craving to satisfaction in less than 15 minutes from start to finish, depending no how “fancy” you want it to be.

At the base of this easy, healthy ramen is homemade chicken stock.  I regularly make large bubbling pots of the stuff then portion it all out before freezing to use at my leisure.  This base is what really makes this ramen oh so rich and comforting.  Homemade is the way to go and ensures that your noodle soup is the best that it can be with layers of developed flavors.  Today, I chose to jazz it up a bit by heating it with some fresh garlic, ginger and turmeric.  This step is not necessary but really helps to round out the asian flavors.

Speaking of flavors, you really have the freedom to make this your own.  These just happen to be my toppings of choice.  It’s pretty much how I order it when I go out to a restaurant.  You could serve this with braised chicken or pork belly, maybe garnish with cilantro or sprouts and a poached egg or bean sprouts.  I often opt for egg noodles but you could also go the healthier route with brown rice or buckwheat noodles.  It’s completely up to you.  The options are endless but the solid flavor base remains the same when you begin with a tasty stock.  This ramen bowl is also very nice when finished with a drizzle of infused chili oil.  However, my favorite part of this is that it comes together in no time.  It’s also convenient as a vehicle for leftovers.
