Mushroom & Bok Choy Ramen Bowl with Ginger Mushroom Broth

Mushroom and Bok Choy Ramen Bowl with Lotus Foods Ramen

Try this mushroom and bok choy ramen bowl for a delicious meal, made in less than 30 minutes. This is the kind of meal that looks impressive, but really can be thrown together in a half hour.

It’s the perfect ramen bowl to cozy up to on a cold week day and will leave you feeling nourished from the inside out!

This recipe is all about the mushrooms

Mushrooms are all the rage right now when it comes to superfoods, due to their impressive nutrient profile. They are an excellent source of B vitamins (hello, energy), and are the only vegan, non-fortified source of vitamin D, a nutrient best known for as something we get from sun exposure.

Mushrooms are also anti-inflammatory and have been studied to be a powerful cancer fighter. To sum it up, mushrooms are one of nature’s finest SUPERFOODS!

Mushroom Ramen Bowl with Ginger Mushroom Broth full of anti-inflammatory and immunity boosting nutrients!

In this mushroom and bok choy ramen bowl recipe, we make homemade mushroom broth, which I first attempted during my Culinary Rx course. Okay, wait, don’t lose interest, yet. I promise, it sounds way more intimidating than it actually is!

The broth takes all of five minutes to throw together and the rest of the time, it’s just doing its thing on the stove while you get some cleaning done, catch up on the ‘gram, or sneak in the latest episode of your current binge.

If you don’t want to make your own broth, I’ve got a compromise for you. Heat eight cups of store-bought mushroom broth (found at Whole Foods or local health store) in a large pot on the stove by simmering for about 30 minutes, adding in the fresh ginger slices and miso paste. Store-bought broth kicked up a notch!

Don’t forget the miso

Pssssst… if you haven’t heard of miso paste, here’s the 411. Miso is fermented soybeans (good for gut health!) and adds a salty flavor to foods. It’s most commonly used in Asian cuisine, and I’ve used it here on the blog in this Asian Quinoa Power Bowl with a Ginger Miso Dressing.

This warming bowl of goodness is not your average cup of ramen. It is packed with flavor and nutrients to keep you healthy during the cold, winter months! I used the purple potato and brown rice ramen from Lotus Foods, but any of their ramen flavors would be delicious.

Description

Try this mushroom and bok choy ramen bowl for a delicious meal, made in less than 30 minutes. This is the kind of meal that looks impressive, but really can be thrown together in a half hour.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 16 oz. package cremini (baby bella) mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 16 oz. package shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 small bok choy, roughly chopped
  • 6 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 packages Lotus Foods ramen noodles
  • For the ginger mushroom broth:
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1” piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 2 16 oz. packages cremini mushrooms, halved
  • 10 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons miso paste

Instructions

  1. To make the broth, heat a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and saute for a few minutes in a Tablespoon of olive oil, until fragrant. Add the mushrooms and saute for another few minutes. Pour the water in the pot and stir in the miso paste. Bring to a boil, then a simmer for 45 minutes to an hour (to let the flavors develop into a hearty broth!).
  2. When the broth is finished, strain the liquid (or scoop out the ingredients with a fine-mesh strainer). Keep the broth at a simmer and add the ramen noodles to the pot. Cook for about 4 minutes, or until separated.
  3. Meanwhile, saute the cremini and shitake mushrooms in a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, or until the mushrooms begin to turn golden brown.
  4. When ready to serve, distribute the mushrooms, ramen noodles and bok choy evenly into four bowls. Pour a few ladles of broth into each bowl, wilting the bok choy a bit. Garnish with cilantro and green onions!
