Several months ago we got backyard chickens! Only one of our ladies has started laying so far, but even just one egg a day is enough to where I’m already trying to come up with different ways of using them. This ramen was perfect with an egg!

Vegetable Ramen with Egg

Vegetable Ramen with Soft-Boiled Egg

Ingredients
4 cups vegetable broth
2 tbs soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 packages instant ramen noodles (flavor packets discarded)
eggs
Any vegetables you like, some suggestions are:
bok choy
shitake and/or oyster mushrooms
sweet corn (frozen or canned)
carrot
green onion

Directions:

1. The eggs can either be soft-boiled, or they can be poached into the soup itself. If you prefer to poach them in the soup, skip to step 2. If you prefer to soft-boil them, boil some water in a pot, add the eggs, and let them boil for about 6 minutes. Remove eggs from water and let them cool. Once cooled, peel and cut in half.

2. Mix the soy sauce and crushed garlic into the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.

3. Add vegetables to the soup and boil for 5-7 minutes.

4. Add the ramen noodles. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring to separate them.

5. If you are poaching the eggs: Reduce heat to low. Carefully crack eggs into the pot. Cover the pot and poach the eggs for 3-4 minutes.
