An authentic bowl of ramen, the classic Japanese soup, requires a flavourful homemade stock. This quick version hits the spot by mixing miso (fermented soybean) paste with store-bought vegetable broth. You'll find fresh ramen noodles in the refrigerated Asian section of your grocery store, but you can also use rice stick vermicelli (about 1/3 inch/ 3 mm wide).

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pkg vegetable broth (900 mL)
  • 225 g shiitake mushroom stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons miso paste
  • 2 teaspoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 280 g fresh ramen noodles
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs peeled and halved
  • 6 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1 strip roasted seaweed cut crosswise in 8 strips

In saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook garlic until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add broth and 3 cups water; bring to boil. Add mushrooms; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in miso paste and soy sauce.

Meanwhile, in pot of boiling water, cook noodles according to package directions; drain and divide among 4 large soup bowls. Top each with 2 egg halves. Ladle soup over top. Sprinkle with green onions and seaweed.
