I have something to admit. One of my favorite comfort foods is ramen.

There’s something about noodles cooked in a spicy savory broth that’s just so comforting. And right now, I feel like I’m in need of this.

This version of ramen is filled with sliced kimchi, which gives the soup a sour fermented flavor that’s unique to kimchi. If you’ve had kimchi before, you know what I’m talking about. I also love adding mushrooms to the soup because it takes on the flavor. Of course, you have to add soft boiled eggs to top off the bowl of ramen. It’s not the same without.

In a medium pot, add chili oil over low to medium heat. Once the chili oil has heated, add gochugaru or Korean chili powder and cook for a minute until toasted. Add minced garlic and cook until aromatic.

Next, pour in chicken or vegetable stock and stir in soy sauce. Add sliced mushrooms and cook until soft. Stir in sesame oil and chopped kimchi.

When ready to serve, drop two eggs into the soup and leave undisturbed. Stir in ramen noodle and your favorite veggies and cook for a couple minutes until the noodles are to your liking. Transfer the noodles to a bowl. Divide the soup and ingredients between the two bowls.
