Ramen and full-flavored broths is getting more common nowadays and you can see new Asian-fusion restaurants pop up at almost every corner. I reckon we all know how it was/is being a poor student basically living on noodles, but we would really like to encourage you to give Ramen a new chance, cause it can be super tasty and healthy when prepared with the right ingredients.
Ingredients (serves 2)
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1/2 smoked garlic clove, crushed
1/2tbs coriander seeds/powder
1tbs lemongrass, finely chopped
2cm fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 pinch of dried chili flakes
1 pinch ground turmeric
300ml vegetable stock
25g egg noodles
25g bean sprouts
6-8 large uncooked, peeled prawns
Mint leaves for garnish
Preheat a large pan and add the onions and dry-fry until soft. Crush the coriander seeds in a mortar or use the broad side of a chopping knife. Add the seeds and the garlic in the pan and cook for approx. 2 minutes. Add the lemongrass, chilli flakes, ginger and tumeric and stir well. Now it’s time to add the vegetable stock and bring to boil. Reduce the heat, add the noodles and let them cook for a few minutes (take a look at the instructions on the package). Finally add the prawns and cook for additional 2 minutes and stir in the bean sprouts before serving. Garnish with mint leaves or fresh coriander and serve!
