HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE RAMEN:
Ok. So, we could divide recipe into three parts: cooking bok choy, preparing broth and assembling soup.
Bok choy could be prepared many ways but for these recipe we will make a quick stir-fry with sesame oil, garlic, ginger and splash of water.
The broth is an essential part of the whole ramen. We will add shiitake mushroom, sry mushroom powder, umami seasoning, soy sauce and vegetable broth.
About tofu: I would suggest to go with a firm or medium firm. It will compliment the broth and whole dish.
