Recipe: Super noodle ramen with kale & mushrooms

Recipe: Super noodle ramen with kale & mushrooms

You rarely get the opportunity to invest time in cooking and do it the right way. And what's better than a wholesome noodle ramen veggie soup on a cold winter's night! Everything you want in bowl: it’s sweet, salty, sour, soft, crunchy and fresh, with a little bit of heat.

So, we did a bit of research and got down to the bottom of it. Jamie does it best, or at least makes it easier for us to cook. The recipe is all his but the photos... and all the cooking(!) was ours.

Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 1 large brown onion
  • olive oil
  • 1 large bunch of kale , (200g),mixed colours if you can get them
  • 2 tablespoons dark miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1 heaped teaspoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 400 g mixed mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 250 g brown-rice ramen noodles

METHOD

  1. To make the broth, separate and peel the garlic cloves, then peel and roughly slice the onion
  2. Heat a splash of oil in a large pan over a medium heat, then slowly cook the whole garlic and sliced onion for 30 minutes, or until sweet and sticky – keep the lid on the pan for the first 20 minutes to keep in all the moisture, then remove for the final 10 minutes so they get a little colour
  3. Add 2 litres of water to the pan. When it comes to the boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 20 minutes
  4. Preheat the oven to 120ºC
  5. Remove any tough stalky bits from the kale leaves, then place a third of the leaves in a low-sided baking tray (this will ensure it crisps up)
  6. Toss it with a little drizzle of oil, then spread the leaves out so they’re not overlapping. Roast for 30 minutes, or until crisp and still green
  7. Strain the broth through a sieve and, using a large metal spoon, squash the onion and garlic to release the flavour back into the pan
  8. In a small bowl, mix both miso pastes and the tahini with a little of the broth to loosen it all up. Stir this back into the main pan and season with soy sauce
  9. Keep the broth warm until everything else is ready
  10. Blanch the remaining kale in your broth for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove with tongs and set half to one side – it is perfect as it is. The other half is going to become the pickle
  11. When the kale for pickling is cool enough to handle, squeeze out all the juice into the broth, and put the kale in a bowl
  12. Scrunch roughly with the sugar, vinegar and a pinch of sea salt, then finely slice and toss through the red chilli
  13. Thickly slice and dry-fry the mushrooms in a frying pan for about 10 minutes, or until they look a bit wrinkly and have stopped releasing water
  14. Pour in the teriyaki and a splash of oil and keep them all moving around the pan for 6 to 8 minutes, or until they have soaked it all up and they are dark and shiny
  15. Cook the noodles in the broth, according to the packet instructions. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan
  16. Once everything is ready, divide the noodles and broth between three-four bowls, along with the mushrooms, pickled kale, blanched kale and crispy kale for the top
  17. Serve with chilli sauce
