Soymilk Ramen with Katsu Chicken

I first tried a soymilk ramen at the Shoryu restaurant in Soho last December. Having looked into how to recreate it, I couldn’t believe that this broth has no meat stock in it at all and relies on vegetarian ingredients for its intense flavour. It is quite a rich broth, due to the soymilk and […]

Festive Turkey Curry Ramen- with all the trimmings

It had to be done. What to do with all those leftover bits of Christmas dinner that have been sat in the fridge for a few days? Inspired a little by Bridget Jones’ Mum’s turkey curry buffet, when you’re a little fed up of eating the same Christmas dinner for days after the main event […]

Winter Warming Chilli Chicken Ramen

The perfect way to use up Sunday roast chicken and veg, this has a warming kick of chilli from Korean gochujang paste. For something a bit different, I have used brussels sprouts as a topping. Cook the stock with the chicken bones for as long as possible, preferably a few hours or an hour or […]

Using miso and fresh ginger for flavouring the broth, it is perfect to warm you on a cold evening. Using hoisin marinated chicken for the meat topping was inspired by a […]

Halloween-inspired “Van Helsing” Ramen

A bowl of this garlic-laced ramen, with a broth flavoured with black mayu (black garlic oil) and topped with garlic chips, will keep […]

Curry Ramen

A curried dashi broth topped with chicken, menma and spinach. I am a big fan of any type of curry; Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian…the list is endless. So combining ramen noodles with a classic Japanese curry roux is always going to be a winner in my books. Again this is inspired by a dish I […]

Chilli Miso Ramen

A miso broth flavoured with fresh chilli and topped with a simple chicken topping, this is a more extreme version of the classic miso broth, with the chilli giving a clean heat. Depending on how hot you like your meals, you can add extra chilli or even add a few dried red chillis to the broth. The […]
