Trend Spotting with BHG: Ramen
Ramen is the new comfort food! With rich broth, chewy noodles, and a choice of meat and veggies the flavors combine to create satisfying soup with a global history.
The definition of comfort food is changing, and it now includes ramen. I am Halley Ramdeen, food editor with BetterHomesandGardens.com. Now, ramen is a traditional noodle dish from Japan. It includes broth, meat, veggies, and ramen noodles. Now, the broth is the most important part. And it's really difficult to make at home. But you can use chicken stock or beef broth, and then stir in some extra flavor. I like sriracha sauce, maybe a dash of mirin, or even add some soy sauce. You can even stir in a spoonful of miso. Now, if you're gonna work with the packaged ramen that you get at the store, check out the web for some really great ideas. Look to bhg.com for more fun soup ideas.
