Japanese Noodles

  • 3 cups of vegetable nage (or light chicken broth)
  • Somen, Ramen or other Japanese noodles
  • Tempura fried mixed veggies (see tempura batter recipe)
  • Tofu sliced into bite size bits
  • For topping: a few drops of toasted Sesame oil, Soy Sauce, chopped cilantro or green onion, and hot sauce if desired (I use Sriracha)

Heat the broth up to a boil and add the noodles, reduce to a simmer and cook like any other dried pasta to desired consistency. Pour noodles and broth into a bowl. Add veggies and toppings. In Japan, slurpping indicates a delicious dish so eat the noodles and bits and if you enjoyed, slurp up the broth.

Don’t know about the US but just discovered organic miso paste and brown rice miso in jars in the supermarket (Sainsburies); Makes miso and ramen even easier and gives that authentic flavour. Finally the retail giants are catching on the japanese flavour, although I’ll still be making a trip to the chinese supermarket for other items. 🙂
