Quick ramen noodles

Quick ramen noodles

A speedy ramen recipe for when your stomach is rumbling, but time is against you. The dashi stock in this creates that bold umami taste distinctive to Japanese cuisine. Made using kombu kelp and bonito fish flakes, dashi adds depth of flavour, whilst the white miso paste brings a light and mild taste to the broth.
