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.
