Ramen is the BEST. And, I’m not talking that packet stuff. I mean, what’s in those seasoning sachets anyway? Scratch that. I don’t want to know. It’s probably best that way.
Anyhoo. Homemade ramen. Sooo different. Basically, this is what you’re dealing with:
- Piping hot bowl of noodles.
- Loaded with fresh, good-for-you veg.
- Topped with a hit of protein (oh hey there, perfectly boiled egg).
- And (the best part) a totally slurp worthy, mushroom broth.
So we have established yum factor is high. But, the other thing you should know. Making ramen from scratch. Not hard at all. This whole delicious bowl of yum. 15 minutes. Start to finish. And in this case. Fast doesn’t mean flavourless. A good hit of mushrooms, gives the broth a full, rich, indescribably delicious flavour, in minutes. Literal minutes. If you’re anything like me (and I know you are) you will be slurping the last bits right from the bowl. I mean, who even cares if someone is watching? That amazingly good.
The other great thing about this recipe? Healthy without even trying. Plus, it’s awesome for people with special diets. It’s the best kind of vegetarian food. Warm and comforting AND it won’t leave you hungry. Want gluten free ramen? Use gluten free noodles and swap the soy sauce for tamari. Need it to be dairy free? Lucky you. This dish was born that way.
Guys, You might not have known it. At least until now. But, you need Mushroom Ramen in your life. It can brighten the darkest day. It’s healthy without tasting healthy. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s the perfect bowl of soup.
And after you make it. Come back. Let’s talk about how good it was. I’m thinking: Mushroom Ramen appreciation society. Will you be a founding member with me? Let me know.
