Avocado Ramen Recipe
1/2 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp. ground ginger
3 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
32 oz. reduced-sodium chicken broth
16 oz. dried ramen noodles
1/2 c. shiitake mushrooms
4 sheets seaweed snack
2 Avocados From Mexico, sliced
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
1/3 c. cilantro, chopped
3 green onions, thinly sliced
Salt to taste
To soft-boil the eggs, place them in a small pot and cover with about 1 inch of cold water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover pot and remove from heat. Let stand for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes, peel the eggs and slice them in half. If they are still hot, run under cold water until manageable.
Heat the oil and butter over medium heat in a large pot until butter is melted. Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the soy sauce, chicken broth, and mushrooms. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 8 minutes or until mushrooms are soft. Season broth with salt to taste.
Add ramen noodles to broth and cook as directed, usually around 2-3 minutes. In the bottom of each serving bowl, place one sheet of seaweed snack. Divide noodles between serving bowls and place atop the seaweed snacks. Add broth to each bowl, leaving room for generous toppings.
Top each serving with half an egg, avocado slices, jalapeño slices, cilantro, and green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy!
