I am sorry I forgot to mention it is also good to use miso for this recipe instead of chicken or other broths. You don't need to use dashi broth but it is a good addition. But, check to see if you can find dashi broth that does not have MSG. Dashi can be made at home with konbu (kelp) but don't let it boil or it will get like gel. Bonita (tuna) flakes and firm to medium firm tofu are delicious additions to this kind of ramen recipe with a sprinkle of the minced scallion (green part only). Read More

added egg and it came out nicely. this is definitely something for someone who is broke and just tired of regular ramen. it is very sweet and recommend adding just a bit more of the seasonings to balance it. Read More

I would definitely cut the amount of each ingredient in half. It was very overwhelming. But could be really good Read More

This has a good base idea but you should probably tweak it a little bit. Someone else said to add egg which worked great and added another layer of flavor. I added some red flakes and cayenne pepper because I knew it was going to be too sweet. It was not so sweet to the point that it's bad but the syrup is pretty potent. I would recommend putting even less syrup than is called for. Nonetheless I finished the whole bowl and personally really enjoyed it. I will probably be making it again because it's better than plain old ramen. Read More

I was not a fan of it!!! The spices didn't mix well. the cumin and maple syrup was very too overpowering, even when reduced in half. I've tried altering the recipe multiple times, but still didn't like the flavor. Read More
