Ingredients

RAMEN BROTH CONCENTRATE

  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha
  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha

VEGETABLES, EGGS, AND SOBA NOODLES

  • 4 portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free tamari
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 bundles (6½ oz) soba noodles (buckwheat noodles)
  • 2 cups steamed greens (broccoli, broccoli rabe, kale, etc.) or packed raw spinach
  • Black sesame seeds (optional)
  • Minced fresh red Thai chili (optional)
  • 4 cups (1 cup per serving) just-boiled water from the kettle, for serving

Instructions

  1. For the broth concentrate, steam the sweet potato until tender, about 10 minutes. Add to a blender or food processor along with 1 cup water, bouillon powder, miso paste, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha to taste, and then blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a jar and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  2. For the vegetables, eggs, and soba noodles, preheat the oven to 425°F and bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Toss the mushrooms with the sesame oil and tamari. Place the mushrooms on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, until shrunken and deep brown. Set aside.
  4. Carefully place the eggs in boiling water and cook for 6 minutes. Fill a medium bowl with cold water. Once the 6 minutes are up, use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the pot and place them in the bowl of cold water to help loosen the shell, keeping the boiling water on the stove for the noodles. Gently peel the eggs, being careful not to break the white or the yolk will run out (they’re not as sturdy as hard-boiled eggs), and set aside. Then, cook the noodles in the reserved boiling water according to package directions, until tender. Drain the noodles, rinse with cold water, drain again, and set aside.
  5. To assemble, for each serving, add ½ cup of broth concentrate to a large jar or airtight container or build at home in a bowl. Top the broth with a portion each of noodles, mushrooms, steamed greens or spinach, a peeled whole egg, and sesame seeds and chili to taste. Seal and store refrigerated.
  6. When you’re ready for lunch, for each serving, pour 1 cup (enough to cover) of boiling water over top, seal, and let stand for 3 minutes to reheat fully. Open the lid, give the soup a gentle stir, slice the egg in half with your spoon, and then eat.

Notes

GO PLANT-BASED To make this meal vegan, use vegetable bouillon and replace the egg with cubed smoked tofu.
