Spring Vegetarian Ramen
with soft-boiled eggs / snap peas / coleslaw mix

Active: 45 min Total: 45 min

A key element of a good bowl of ramen is rich, flavorful broth. Shiitake mushrooms give this version, which was last featured in 2016, just the right amount of umami flavor. Top the finished dish with crisp snap peas and soft-boiled eggs.

Make

  1. Heat Dutch oven with sesame oil (the portion for the stock) over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots and saute until golden brown, ~2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant, ~1 minute. Add shiitakes, stock, miso, and ponzu. Reduce heat to a low-medium and simmer broth while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Bring a small saucepan of water to a low boil. Add eggs to boiling water and boil for exactly 7 minutes (this will yield cooked whites and runny yolks, so boil a minute less or more if you like your eggs cooked differently). Transfer eggs to a colander and run under cool tap water. Set aside until cool enough to peel.
  3. Add noodles and coleslaw mix to simmering broth and cook until noodles are tender, 4 to 6 minutes.
  4. Heat a skillet with sesame oil (the portion for the ramen) over medium heat. To heated oil, add snap peas and a pinch of salt. Saute until peas turn bright green and are warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes (be careful not to overcook or they will lose their crunch). Transfer peas to a serving bowl.
  5. When noodles are finished cooking, taste broth and season with additional miso, ponzu, or a bit of hot sauce if you like spice. (Don't skip this final seasoning step because there is variation in the flavor and sodium content of stock.)
  6. Peel eggs (hold the eggs under cool running water to help remove the peel if needed) and slice in half. Season yolks with a pinch of salt.
  7. Ladle noodles, coleslaw mix, and broth into serving bowls. Top each bowl with snap peas, eggs, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over the finished dish. Enjoy!

So delicious! Although I didn't find the vegetarian version to be that filling.

My 9 year old (me) gives it 5 stars and my mom gives it 4. super delicious although mom says it was too many steps & dishes. She wants to make the original version next time instead of Paleo. I got mine minus pork with ramen- she got zucchini & pork. Lots of dishes & steps!

This was legit. I loved it!! I used a miso infused broth because I couldn't find miso paste in my area. I also used shitake mushrooms that were in a jar instead of dried ones. Super Savory and yummy. The pork literally fell apart.

Pork was good, broth was good. Didn’t care for the peas in it.
