Easiest and Quickest Ramen Recipe

This is a classic comfort food dish, packed with flavour from the chilli, garlic and ginger and topped with tofu and veg for crunch. It can be made in bulk and frozen for those days where you need something instant and delicious.

Recipe Breakdown:

Ginger, Garlic & Chilli- They key ingredients for a delicious base, adding a little spice, heat and depth. You can grate the ginger or finely chop. For this recipe I finely grated the ginger and minced the garlic.

Tofu- Firm tofu works best if you want to fry before adding to the broth, however if you’re making it all in one pot, a silken tofu will also work. Top tip, save some of the crispy fried tofu to add back into the bowl just as serving as this keeps it nice and crispy.

Broth- This is just a simple stock cube and boiling water, then once mixed with the ginger, garlic and chilli, it’ll add loads of delicious flavour. If you want to make this a little bit more traditional, add finely chopped up nori sheets or a tbsp of brown miso paste.

Ramen (Noodles) – Traditionally they are the skinny wheat noodles to be classed as ramen however we’re not fussy so please use which ever noodles you can get your hands on. It’ll still be delicious whether they’re ramen, udon or even rice!
