Sesame Garlic Ramen
- 1lb ramen noodles (equivalent to 5 packages of instant ramen with the flavor packets discarded).
- 1/4 cup tamari
- 1/4 cup oyster or hoisin sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp of chili sauce like sriracha
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 4 cloves garlic
- 3 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- green onions, rinsed and chopped
- 1-2 tbsp sesame seeds
- organic frozen broccoli
- small stock of bok choy
- Boil water and cook ramen noodles of choice, strain and rinse in cold water, set aside.
- At the same time and in a separate bowl, steam or microwave frozen broccoli, set aside. *myth busting - there is nothing wrong with eating frozen organic vegetables. In some cases it can be the healthier choice if fresh organic produce isn't available where you live.
- Chop bok choy, garlic, and ginger, set aside.
- In another bowl, whisk together Tamara, oyster or hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, chili sauce, and water.
- In a large skillet, heat toasted sesame oil over medium heat.
- Stir in garlic and ginger until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Pour in the sauce mixture and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Stir in cooked ramen, bok choy, and broccoli until sauce is evenly distributed, 3-4 minutes.
- Garnish with green onion and sesame seeds.
