Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Ramen noodles — Cook the noodles according to the package instructions and rinse them under cold water to prevent them from sticking together.
  • Soft-boiled eggs — Bring a pot of water to a boil and gently lower the eggs into the water. Cook for 6 minutes, then transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Peel the eggs and slice them in half.
  • Shiitake mushrooms — Remove the stems and slice the caps.
  • Nori seaweed — Shred the seaweed into small pieces.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use a pressure cooker to save time and infuse the broth with more flavor.
  • Customize the toppings to your liking, such as adding corn, bamboo shoots, or bok choy.
  • Use low-sodium chicken broth to control the saltiness of the dish.
  • For a vegetarian version, substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth and omit the chicken thighs.

Serving advice

Serve the ramen hot, garnished with additional green onions and nori seaweed.

Presentation advice

Arrange the toppings in an aesthetically pleasing way, such as placing the soft-boiled eggs in the center and arranging the shredded chicken, bean sprouts, and shiitake mushrooms around them.
