Homemade Ramen Bowl
This past week we were craving the creativity of making something new for dinner and decided to give a try at ramen bowls - and let me tell you, they we
And surprisingly easy!
Here's what you need:
Ramen noodles - 4 packages
Rotisserie chicken (or any kind of shredded chicken) - enough to your liking
Bok Choy - 3 full leaves cut into quarters
Mushrooms - to your liking
Carrots - cut thinly to your liking
Cucumber - cut thinly to your liking (this is a garnish)
Broccoli - small pieces to your liking
Green Onion - three cut for the broth, one for garnish
Cilantro - chopped for soup and garnish
Bone broth - 4 cups
rice vinegar - 1/4 cup
coconut aminos (or your soy sauce preference) - 1/2 cup
oyster sauce - 2 1/2 tablespoons
fish sauce - 1 1/2 tablespoons
chilli garlic sauce - 1 1/2 tablespoons
ginger - to your liking (we used ground)
garlic - 4 minced cloves
sesame seeds (optional)
Here are the steps:
1. Cook the ramen noodles separately in a pot of boiling water. Personal preference, we do NOT use the seasoning pack that comes with the ramen just because we try to be as healthy as possible and those seasoning packets are NOT your friend - but I'll leave that for another day. Once the noodles are cooked, strain and coat with olive oil so they don't stick together and set aside.
2. In large pot, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sweat out the minced garlic and green onions. Then add the carrots, broccoli and mushrooms to sauté.
3. While that's cooking, in a separate bowl mix the rice vinegar, coconut aminos, fish sauce, oyster sauce, chili garlic sauce, and ground ginger and whisk until combined.
4. Once the veggies are slightly cooked but still look like they have a "crunch" to them - add the mushrooms and then add the bone broth, 1 cup of water and the liquid mixture you just made of the sauces and ginger. (If you'd like my homemade bone broth recipe, that's also posted on my site and that's what we used!)
5. After that is combined and simmering, add the precooked chicken to the broth!
6. Let all of that simmer in the broth for up to five minutes and then you're ready to serve! Plate the noodles in a bowl first, then pour the soup/broth over the noodles and there you go! Garnish with a little cilantro, green onion, sesame seeds, maybe even some lime and there you go!
