i will admit it, i am a noodle-holic. i love them. buckwheat, semolina, rice, you name it i love ’em. my fav go to recipe quick ramen noodles. i love the ramen noodles themselves, however i hate the powdery packet of doom that they come with. so i make my own broth. this broth takes its inspiration from the one and only mark bittman. he is wonderful. his tome how to cook everything vegetarian is a staple in my kitchen. this is a broth that is wonderful when paired with noodles, tofu, setain what have you. the recipe is mostly improved with what i have on hand but keeps the same basic structure. the only thing that is actually measured out is the water. everything else is to taste.
- 1 1/2 c water
- organic ketchup (don’t judge until you have tried it!), make sure there is no added sweetenter
- soy sauce or tamari
- vegan worcestershire sauce
- hot sauce
throw all ingredients in a small sauce pan and taste as you go until you get the combonation that you like. turn the burner on high, throw in your noodles and cook away.
noodles and broth are such a great last minute meal that i can throw together after a day at work when i have no idea what to make. warm, tomato-y, salty with just a little bit of heat from the hot sauce. wunderbar!
