Vegetarian Ramen Noodle Soup

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).
