  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated garlic

  • cup thinly sliced leek (green part)

  • 1 ½ cups thinly sliced cabbage

  • ½ cup enoki mushrooms

  • 4 ounces refrigerated fresh ramen noodles

  • 3 cups water

  • 2 tablespoons miso paste

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onion, or to taste


  1. Crack eggs into a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook until outer edges become opaque, about 1 minute. Turn once; cook until whites are completely set, about 3 minutes; set eggs aside.

  2. Heat sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir ginger, garlic, leek, cabbage, and mushrooms until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in miso paste; gradually whisk in water and bring to a boil. Add in ramen noodles; reduce heat and simmer until noodles soften, about 3 minutes. Season with soy sauce. Divide into two bowls; top each serving with egg. Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions.

Cook's Notes:

I bought my Japanese ramen noodles in the refrigerated section of an Asian market

You can use either red or blonde miso paste for this recipe.

I used a microplane grater to grate my ginger and garlic.
