I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw carton-packed Ramen Soup products in a supermarket store. Are Ramen so popular in Australia as the biggest supermarket chain is keen to develop such products? If you a Ramen enthusiast, you should know that Ramen Soup is easy to make yourself. At least, my family’s Miso Ramen Soup is easy.


Makes

4 Servings

Ingredients

1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 small piece Ginger *finely chopped
1 tablespoon Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) *optional
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1200ml Chicken Stock *I calculate 300ml per serving
1 teaspoon Dashi Powder *I use Bonito type
1 to 2 Spring Onion *lighter colour parts, cut to 10cm in length
3 o 4 tablespoons Miso
2 to 4 tablespoon Mirin for sweetness
Soy Sauce *for adjusting the saltiness

Method
  1. Heat Sesame Oil, Garlic and Ginger in a pot over medium low heat. When aromatic, add Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) and stir, then add Chicken Stock, Dashi Powder and Spring Onion(s).
  2. Bring to the boil over higher heat, then simmer for 30 minutes or until flavours are all well combined. Add Miso and Mirin, and adjust the saltiness with Soy Sauce as you like.
  3. Place rightly cooked Ramen noodles and your favourite toppings (my favourite toppings for Miso Ramen are stir-fried Vegetables and Roasted Pork), and enjoy immediately!!!
