  • Broth Ingredients:
  • Bones , fat, and skin of one whole roasted chicken
  • 6 large garlic cloves roughly chopped
  • ½ tablespoon roughly chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 cup chopped fresh white onion
  • 8 and 1/2 tablespoons concentrated miso broth
  • 2 and ½ tablespoons pure seasame oil
  • 5 cups water
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Other Ingredients Needed:
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 packs of ramen style noodles
  • 8 ounce can or about 1 cup of fresh sliced bamboo shoots
  • 2 bundles of fresh bok choy (white stems cut off)
  • 14 ounce can or about 2 cups of fresh bean sprouts
  • 2 to 3 cups of sliced cooked chicken

  1. Place all of the broth ingredients into a large pot. Bring the broth ingredients to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover the pot of broth with a lid and cook on low for about one hour.
  2. After the broth has cooked, strain the broth using a strainer.
  3. Place the strained broth back into the pot. Bring the broth to a boil.
  4. Add the ramen noodles to the broth. Cook the ramen noodles as directed on the package. While the noodles cook, add your eggs to a pot of water and boil for 4 minutes, then remove the pot of egg from heat and let the eggs sit in the water for another 3 to 4 minutes to get a soft boiled egg.
  5. When ready to serve, add the sprouts, bamboo shoots, bok choy, and cooked chicken to the ramen soup, and allow the vegetables and chicken to heat through.
  6. Peel eggs, cut eggs in half, and place half of an egg in each serving.
  7. Garnish with diced green onions, and other optional garnishes.
