In Japan, chefs spend up to 24 hours simmering their ramen broth to perfection. Lucky you: If a craving hits for the chewy noodles and nutty, sweet flavor of this northern Japanese classic, you can have it steaming in front of you in 30 minutes. Normally, you'd have to scour specialty markets to find white and red miso, premium ramen noodles, seasoned bamboo, togarashi spice blend, and sesame oil. But Rachael Lake's easy kit includes those, and everything else you need (except for your choice of protein) to make this umami-licious soup.
The box's contents are shelf-stable, so no worries about wilting or spoilage. If you'd like to customize with fresh ingredients, the easy-to-follow recipe card tells how. Low in effort, high in satisfying flavor, it'll impress everyone you make it for, including you. Makes four adult servings. Hand assembled in Sunnyvale, California, from global ingredients.
