CHICKEN RAMEN

INGREDIENTS – serves 2

80g soba noodles
1/2 carrot sliced thinly (I use a vegetable peeler)
handful spinach
75g shitake mushrooms sliced
1 large egg
1 spring onion

FOR THE SOUP BROTH
1 x onion finely diced
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1x chilli
2tbsp dark Soy Sauce 
1tbsp miso paste 
2 anchovies (I use jarred in brine)
1tbsp sesame oil
1 x chicken stock (I used the oxo flavour pot)
small handful of coriander
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt and pepper to taste
600ml water

FOR THE POACHED CHICKEN
3 x boneless skinless chicken thigh
1tsp lazy garlic
1tsp lazy chilli
1 x vegetable stock cube
water

METHOD
1. Begin by preparing your broth. Sauté the onion in oil and add the anchovies. Mix until they ‘dissolve’
2. Add all the remaining ingredients except the lime juice and water and keep stirring for a further 2mins
3. Add half the lime juice and all the water and simmer on a low heat  with the lid on for 30mins
4. To poach the chicken put all the ingredients in a pan and add water so the chicken is fully covered
5. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer for 20mins
6. Once the chicken is cooked remove from the stock and set aside covered to keep warm
7. In the same pan, boil your noodles for the recommended time on the packet
8. Softly boil your egg (mine took 6mins on a rolling boil)
9. Add your mushrooms to the stock pot for the final 4mins
10. Finish your broth with salt and pepper plus the remaining lime juice to taste
11. Serve your noodles with the carrot, spring onion and mushroom on the side before pouring over you broth
11. Half your soft boil egg and place on top

Enjoy : )

Hi! I'm Bea, as well as being new to the world of blogging I have been a food teacher in secondary schools for four years. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. I'll be posting all about travel, food I enjoy, whether it's at a restaurant, a recipe I've trialled or something I have knocked up myself. I will also add a few drinks here and there because let's face it, it's got to be done! I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me. From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reins on occasion from about the age of 11. I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I have 3 bottomless pits I call brothers as well as a fiance and they are more than happy to try what I make and be extremely blunt so I welcome all comments : ) I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no matter if it is a weekday after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face! Please don't hesitate to get in touch, my email is: beasbitesonline@hotmail.com If you have any posts you'd like to see then please feel free to Email me, DM me on Instagram, Facebook or Tweet me and I'll do my best : ) I hope I'll get a chance to chat to you. Bea x
