Spicy Kimchi Ramen Bowl

Weichen Yan

Have you tried kimchi? Kimchi is a fermented (hello probiotics!) vegetable (usually cabbage and radish) side dish commonly used in Korean cooking. Use kimchi to add flavor to soups, stews, noodles, fried rice, savory pancakes and more. This recipe uses kimchi to flavor plain ramen noodles. The soft-boiled egg serves as an extra sauce: simply mix the runny yolk into the ramen to create a creamy texture. Plus, feel free to add your favorite greens and protein.
