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.
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
