Spicy Peanut Ramen

by Yejiskitchenstories

A quick 15-minute meal made with a creamy spicy peanut broth, and bouncy noodles, finished with a drizzle of spicy chili oil.

What you’ll need:

  • Dried shiitake mushroom: for the base of the soup broth. It adds so much umami and depth to the soup.
  • Ramen noodles: you can use any noodle of choice, I chose to use fresh ramen noodles from the refrigerated section of the Asian store.
  • Creamy peanut butter: for that creamy factor for the soup.
  • Dashi soup stock: this is optional, but adds extra depth to the soup.
  • Chili oil: optional, but I like to add a drizzle for some heat!

How to make this Spicy Peanut Ramen:

  1. In a medium-sized pot, heat the dried shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, and water. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to a simmer. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until the dried mushrooms are completely rehydrated. 
  2. In another pot, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the ramen noodles according to the package directions. Drain the cooked noodles and set them aside. 
  3. In a bowl, add the peanut butter, dashi soup stock, chili oil, and 2 cups of veggie broth. Stir to combine and create a silky soup. Season with salt to taste. 
  4. Add your cooked ramen noodles to the soup and garnish with your toppings of choice! Enjoy!
