When I think of comfort food, I think of a steaming hot bowl of spicy sesame ramen. This dish is the perfect combination of savory, spicy, and umami flavors, and it’s so easy to make! All you need is a few simple ingredients and you can have a delicious meal in no time.
I recently made this dish for dinner and it was a hit! I started by preheating the oven to 350°F and then chopping the green onions and cilantro (if using). I then minced the garlic and grated the ginger, and set them aside. I heated a large skillet over medium-high heat and added sesame oil. Once the oil was hot, I added the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes and cooked for 1 minute until fragrant. I then added the soy sauce, rice vinegar, vegetable broth, and ramen noodles to the skillet and stirred to combine all ingredients together. I reduced the heat to low-medium heat and simmered for 5 minutes until the noodles were cooked through.
I divided the ramen into two bowls and topped with chopped green onions and cilantro (if using). The result was a delicious and comforting meal that was full of flavor. The noodles were a deep golden brown color, with flecks of red pepper flakes and green onions scattered throughout. On top of the noodles were two sprigs of cilantro, adding a bright green pop of color. On the side of each bowl was a small dish of sesame oil, soy sauce, and rice vinegar, allowing each person to customize the flavor of their ramen.
If you’re looking for a delicious and comforting meal, I highly recommend trying this spicy sesame ramen. It’s sure to be a hit with your family and friends!
