Key Ingredients of This Recipe

Ingredients Quick Homemade Miso Ramen
  • Chicken
  • Udon Noodles – these are chewy Japanese noodles made from wheat flour, water, and salt and are thicker than soba noodles. I prefer these as they keep their texture and will not be pushed to the background by any of the other ingredients. You can also use rice noodles, glass noodles or yet even spaghetti.
  • Stock – since I have chicken in this ramen, I used chicken stock. You can use any stock you prefer.
  • Scallions – a shallot can work as well or any other onion for that matter.
  • Ginger – fresh and grated or alternatively use ginger paste.
  • Garlic – same for garlic. Use fresh garlic, minced or garlic paste.
