Today we are making veggie ramen. This is what we would call “un batazo” in Costa Rica. It’s one of those recipes that for some weird miracle ended up delicious on the first try. So let’s get started. This is what you will need to make two portions: a piece of ginger the size of your thumb, a handful of celery leaves, porcini mushrooms (I’m going to be using dehydrated ones because I couldn’t find fresh ones), a big carrot, bok choy (if you can’t find bok choy you can use chard but it takes a little bit more time cooking, and the taste is a bit different), soy sauce, some kind of vegetable stock (I will be using these cubes), ramen and you can add a piece of nori and scallions to garnish. So we’re going to stat by adding the amount of water you’re supposed to use to cook the ramen and putting that to boil. If you’re using liquid vegetable stock add the vegetable stock instead of the water. Peel the ginger. Chop the bok choy or chard and separate the stems. Chop the carrots and if you’re using fresh mushrooms chop and separate the stems. When the water comes to a boil add the ginger, chard or bok choy stems, the mushroom stems, celery leaves, and a bit of soy sauce. Let that cook for a while and then add the carrot and the bok choy or chard. After those have cooked for about 4 minutes, add the mushrooms and if you’re using cube vegetable stock, add those as well and let that cook for 3 or 4 minutes or until the mushrooms have cooked. Now strain the soup and set the vegetables aside. Check how much soup you’re left with and add water until you have the amount you started with. Now put the stock in the pan. I’m going to be adding half because I’m cooking for two and separating ramen after cooking it in the same pot is impossible. When the soup boils, add the ramen and cook them according to the instructions in the packet. Ramen noodles by themselves are vegan but the flavour packets they come with aren’t so be sure not to use those. And now the ramen is ready, just serve it and top it with the cooked vegetables and if you have things to garnish it, go ahead and add those as well.
