Immune Boosting Ramen
Laura Bond, Serves 1
Research suggests that bone broth can help soothe the stomach while boosting your immune system (Rennard BO, et al. Chest. 2000). For extra protein swap the egg for wild salmon or organic chicken.
- 300-500ml bone broth (organic)
- Portion of Thai rice noodles
- 3 cm fresh turmeric, finely chopped
- small knob of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 small onion
- 2 shiitake mushrooms
- 1 tsp tamari soya sauce
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 organic egg
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- Coriander (optional)
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook according to packet instructions. Drain, rinse in cold water and set aside. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil in a pan then add the onion, stir for 5 minutes before adding the mushrooms, ginger and turmeric and sauté for a further 2 minutes. Add the bone broth and bring to the boil, turn down the heat and add the pak choi, tamari and fish sauce and simmer for a further 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and in the pot you used to cook the noodles, poach the egg. Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to the boiling water and crack the egg into a small cup. Make a whirlpool in the pot and pour the egg in. Cook for three minutes for a perfect poached egg. Pour the broth into a ramen bowl over the noodles and top with the poached egg and coriander.
