Lazy Day Ramen Broth

Not every meal can be a scratch made masterpiece of cookery, especially if you’re running low on spoons (thanks chronic illness, you’re a real gem) and finding it difficult to get through the day.

This is an easy recipe that I like to make myself when I’m feeling blue or overwhelmed, comfort in a bowl. You can make this just for the broth, can boil some noodles in it, or sometimes I like to simmer dumplings in it.

Lazy Day Ramen Broth: Makes 2 Cups

  • 2 tsp chicken base (I use the Better than Bouillon Reduced Sodium)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice wine
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Korean red chili flake (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 tsp minced ginger (I mince all my ginger at one time and freeze in an ice cube tray)
  • 1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
  • 1 cup water

Simply blend all of your ingredients together in a blender and simmer on the stove. Cook some ramen noodles in this, simmer some dumplings, or just drink as is. Try adding it to other recipes as well! (It makes for some really good rice.)

If you’d like to make a bigger batch and freeze some for another day, go for it! And remember, fed is best.
