It’s December, and the food world has gone crazy for roasted root vegetables and peppermint desserts and mulled drinks and all things Christmasy. I am not immune to this- but as well as being happy and festive, December can be a time for being freezing cold and getting ill- and roasted candy cane parsnips aren’t gonna do anything for that.
So if you need warming up, here’s a recipe for you. 8 ingredients and 10 minutes are all you need. I’m not going for authentic Japanese ramen here, I’m going for a quick and easy hit of carbs, protein, vitamin c and spice- so you poor sickly folk can get back in the festive spirit as quick as you can.
I call it spicy because the chili and black pepper give it a kick, but it’s pretty mild. If you want it properly spicy, add the seeds from the chili and maybe a little chili oil into the broth.
