I’ve been experimenting with making a dish that tastes like ramen. I wasn’t quite sure how to get the miso, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil combo just right. But then of course Tasty videos came to the rescue. You know the ones that you watch on Facebook over and over again. This one made a miso broth by just heating up chicken stock and then pouring it into a bowl with some miso and mixing until the miso dissolved. It seemed easy enough so I gave it a try!
Don’t get me wrong, I love ramen noodles. But from time to time, or really most of the time, we are all looking for ways to make our favorites healthier. And for this dish, replacing ramen noodles with spaghetti squash is not only simple, but looks and tastes good too.
I added in some seaweed snacks (I found them at Trader Joes) and my ultimate favorite, an egg, and it brought this dish to the next level! p.s. don’t mind my unsuccessful 6 minute egg this go around. I was in a rush and didn’t have time to make another.
