doctoring ramen soup
Any ramen soup ideas - what do you add to it to make it your own? I add poached eggs, but I wondered if there are any new ideas out there.
eggs - poached or scrambled and then stirred in with the noodles
veggies - gai lan or bok choy, boiled briefly in soup alone after ramen noodles are cooked and removed
processed cheese - sounds disgusting and haven't tried but my friend likes to add it
frozen veggies (carrots/peas/corn)
You can also crack the egg open into the pot of ramen to let it poach in the soup. If the soup is very hot, you can do this in the bowl.
You may want to pull back on the amount of soup base you put into your ramen as well. It's mostly salt, so if you're adding other flavorings, especially if they contain salt, you know...
Scallion ginger oil is always nice as well. Use any neutral-flavored oil and slowly heat one or two slices of ginger and some scallions in the oil for a while. The oil will take on the essence of the scallion. Keep it refrigerated as it will go rancid.
eggs(slightly scrambled and stirred in raw), grated ginger, frozen peas, dried mushrooms(shitakenas black), hoisin sauce, thin sliced chinese sausage, leftover shredded chicken, green onions, grated carrots, mung bean sprouts,whatever is lying around(within limits)
