Believe it or not, my love for ramen is infinite. This is something I make regularly because there’s nothing better than noodles swimming in homemade broth. Just a bowl of noodle soup with lots of feel-good ingredients. Quick, nourishing comfort food.
This miso and peanut butter flavor combo is made pure by accident, it turned out as a very luscious recipe and I had no choice but to share it with you.
After cooking the broth I added shredded chicken and soba noodles to the bowls, poured the hot broth with spinach and shiitakes, served it with chili flakes and toasted peanuts.
Sometimes a ramen fix is just the right thing, and this happy accident version hits the spot. The addition of miso, peanut butter and runny egg yolks are the key to make it feel more special and interesting, just try it out!
