Ramen Miso Soup with Enoki Mushrooms and Baby Bok Choy

After a long day at work on Friday, I made ramen miso soup to kick off the weekend. I had a hot date with Karl that night, so I wasn’t able prepare a big meal. On our date, Karl took me to the Stanford Theater on University Ave because The Sound of Music was playing! He knows I love the Sound of Music, so I’m pretty sure he was trying to earn some brownie points. In our relationship brownie points has a literal meaning…do good…earn brownie points…get fresh baked brownies. It’s a flawless system. 

I was in need of one of those “one pot/pan” meals – a meal that requires only one pot or pan to cook in. This dish is just that, plus it’s incredibly delicious and takes no time to make (which is important when you’re already starving after work). Your local asian market will have everything you need to make this ramen miso soup.

Dashi | Sprig and Flours

This is what dashi looks like. I warn you, it smells and looks like fish food, but don’t be afraid, it is delicious in miso soup. 

Enoki Mushrooms | Sprig and Flours

Slice off the bottom to get rid of the roots, then separate the mushrooms into smaller clusters.

Cooked Ramen Noodles | Sprig and Flours

Divide the noodles into medium size bowls. If you’re making this for two (like me), store the leftover noodles in the fridge in the a ziplock bag until you want to have it again.
