How about a quick 10-minute recipe as we close in on the end of the week?
*not the most kid-friendly dish, as there are a lot of spices involved*
We recently stumbled upon a newer restaurant in town called The Slurping Turtle. It’s an Asian inspired spot with a menu full of sushi, dumplings and more… but their speciality is ramen.
We’ve been craving it ever since we went, but with 4 kids it’s not incredibly convenient to get out as often as we’d like.
Ramen is tricky to me. I’ve attempted many recipes from some of my favorite cooks and seem to always screw it up … or it’s not as flavorful as I’d like. I saw a similar recipe to this one on IG and adapted it to make it my own.
This recipe only takes 10 minutes, it’s full of flavor and be served plain or with protein. Last night I added butter garlic shrimp in our dishes, but you could also do a teriyaki tofu.
If you want to make it more mild you can certainly tone down the red chili paste. Enjoy! And don’t forget to let me know if you make it!
