Noods Noods Noods

Because cold Tuesdays call for #noods. And because it’s January and because that undoubtedly means there are heaps of cold Tuesdays ahead of us, I give you the #ramennoodlebowl formula. Because everyone should have the formula for a good nood. Clothing optional.

METHOD

  • Start with a good veggie broth.

  • Add seasonings like soy sauce, tamari, mirin, garlic, ginger.

  • Simmer for a few minutes to let the flavours develop.

  • Add veggies like broccoli, bok choy, carrots, spinach, sprouts.

  • Add your noods, which can be anything at all: spaghetti, udon, ramen, clear rice sticks.

  • Add in your final flavours like lime, miso paste, sesame oil, and herbs like mint or Thai basil.

So here are a few faves:

CREAMY MISO = I cup of veggie broth + slice of ginger, tablespoon of tahini, tablespoon miso, teaspoon of tamari.
SWEET SESAME GARLIC = 1 cup veggie broth + 3 slices of ginger, 1/2 sliced garlic clove, 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup, dash of sesame oil, squeeze of lime
SPICY RED CURRY
1 cup veggie broth + 1 teaspoon red curry paste, 1/2 sliced clove of garlic, 1 slice of ginger, 1/3 teaspoon of tamari
