Quick Miso Ramen (vegetarian, including a vegan option) / Brzi miso ramen (vegetarijanski, uključujući i vegansku opciju)

I’ve got to be honest with you and admit that I’ve been treating my body like a dumpster lately. Pastries, cakes, fried food and the likes have been vigorously clogging my blood vessels. I’ve finally decided that enough is enough and that I need to have something green and light to bring me back to life. This quick ramen was the perfect remedy. Also, should you decide to make it vegan, just add some soft tofu to it instead of the egg and you’ll be good to go.

METHOD:

Wash, peel and chop up onion and carrot. Mince ginger and garlic. Add coconut oil, onion and carrot to a pot on high heat and saute for about five minutes until slightly caramelized. Add in minced garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Give a good stir and cook for just a minute so the spices become fragrant. Add in the veggie broth and bring to a rolling boil, then dump in peas, broccoli and noodles. Season with salt, pepper and soy sauce, then cook for about 5-10 minutes, until veggies and noodles are cooked through.

While the soup is cooking, cook the eggs in a separate pot until medium-done, for about 5-6 minutes. Rinse the eggs in cold water, then peel and cut into halves.

Once the veggies are done to your liking, turn off the heat. Dissolve miso in a bit of broth, then stir everything back into your pot together with toasted sesame oil. Serve each portion of soup with an egg (or tofu if you want to make it vegan) and drizzled with a bit of Sriracha.

Moram biti iskrena sa vama i priznati da sam zadnjih dana svoje tijelo tretirala kao kontejner. Slatkiši, kolači, pržena hrana i slična zla mi veselo plutaju po krvotoku i začepljuju arterije. Odlučila sam tome svemu stati na kraj jer mi je stvarno više trebalo nešto zeleno da me vrati u život, a ovaj brzi ramen se pokazao kao pravi lijek. Također, ovaj recept lako možete i veganizirati tako da umjesto jaja upotrijebite mekani tofu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 8,48 kn po porciji / 33,91 kn za sve)

Za juhu:

2 žlice kokosovog ulja (1,00 kn)

1 velika mrkva (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

Komadić đumbira veličine palca (0,50 kn)

½ žličice čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

6 šalica povrtnog temeljca (3,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznutog graška (1,50 kn)

Vrećica smrznute brokule (7,50 kn)

2 kocke kineskih rezanaca (8,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

1 žlica miso paste (2,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

Dodatno za posluživanje:

4 jaja (6,00 kn)

Sriracha (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte luk i mrkvu. Đumbir i češnjak sitno nasjeckajte ili naribajte. Kokosovo ulje, luk i mrkvu dodajte u lonac na jakoj vatri i dinstajte oko pet minuta da se blago karameliziraju. Dodajte češnjak, đumbir i čili, pa dobro promiješajte i pržite minutu da začini zamiriše. Sada u lonac dodajte temeljac i pustite ga da zavrije, pa ubacite unutra grašak, brokulu i rezance. Začinite solju, paprom i soja sosom, pa kuhajte jedno 5-10 minuta dok povrće i rezanci ne budu gotovi.

Dok se juhica krčka, u posebnom loncu skuhajte jaja da budu srednje-kuhana kako bi ste imali želatinasti žutanjak, jedno 5-6 minuta. Jaja odmah operite u hladnoj vodi, pa ogulite i raspolovite.

Čim je povrće u juhi gotovo, maknite sve s vatre. Miso otopite u malo juhe, pa onda sve to skupa umiješajte u lonac skupa sa sezamovim uljem. Svaku porciju juhe poslužite sa jajetom (ili tofuom ako idete na vegansku varijantu) i pokapajte sa malo Srirache ili kojeg drugog ljutog umaka po vašem izboru.
