Whenever we go to visit our extended family, we always try  to go to our favourite Ramen Noodle Restaurant called Ajisen Ramen. I decided to try to make a similar soup. It turned out pretty delicious and quite easy to put together.

INGREDIENTS

1 package ramen noodles (20 ounces)

5-6 cups organic vegetable broth

4 garlic cloves minced

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tbsp safflower oil

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp rice vinegar

4 tbsp soy sauce

1 package enoki mushrooms separated

4 cups shiitake mushrooms sliced

4 cups baby bok choy – rinsed and pealed into pieces ends slices off

6 green onions sliced fine

4 organic eggs hard boiled

4 cups frozen corn

1 package firm tofu cut into small square cubes

DIRECTIONS

In a pot heat safflower oil and sesame oil. Sauté the minced garlic and ginger powder on low heat for a few minutes. Add in vegetable broth, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Then add in mushrooms and baby bok choy. Cook for 5 minutes. Add to the broth green onion, frozen corn and tofu. While broth is cooking, in a small pot place eggs with water and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes and then place eggs in cold water. In a kettle boil water. Place ramen noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water on top of noodles. Let stand for 3-4 minutes and then drain noodles in a strainer. Add in ramen noodles and hard boiled eggs into the soup and continue cooking for another 10 minutes until hot. Take ramen soup off stovetop and serve in a large bowl. Enjoy!

I recently bought the summer issue of the Rachael Ray Every Day Magazine for July/August 2016. I found a simple recipe for a cold gazpacho soup that i decided to try. This soup is light and refreshing on a hot summer’s day. A must recipe to try if you like tomatoes. The original recipe called for tomatillos but i substituted them for  regular tomatoes instead. i also didn’t add the bread into the soup.

INGREDIENTS

5  large tomatoes roughly chopped

1 avocado pitted and scooped out of skin

1 small sweet onion roughly chopped

2 large celery sticks roughly chopped

1/2 english cucumber peeled and roughly chopped

1/2 cup flat leaf parsley or cilantro

1 large jalapeno chile roughly chopped

Juice of one lime or 1/4 cup of lemon juice

1-2 large garlic cloves

2 tbsp olive oil

sea salt to taste

1 handful of ice cubes

DIRECTIONS

Puree all ingredients together in a food processor or blender. You might have to do it in two batches. Season with salt. Serve as a side dish or as a main meal with a piece of  your favourite bread. Enjoy!
