3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms (oyster or crimini)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 thumb of ginger, peeled and grated
2 teaspoons sesame oil
6 cups chicken broth
3–4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons of Sambal Oelek Chili
A healthy squirt of sriracha (more if you like it spicy)
2 cups baby bok choy
2 packages dried top ramen (discard seasoning packets)
1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 cup thinly sliced cooked chicken (breast or thighs)
- Saute vegetables and aromatics: In a large dutch oven or stockpot, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add carrots, red pepper and mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Add minced garlic, ginger and sesame oil and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
- Pour in liquids: Add broth, soy sauce, sambal oelek chili sauce and sriracha, and bring broth to a slow simmer. Taste test broth and add in more soy sauce or sriracha to your liking.
- Add bok choy and noodles: Stir in bok choy (reserve some for topping) and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add dried ramen noodles to the simmering broth and cook for 2-3 minutes.
- Garnish and serve: Top soup bowls off with thinly sliced jalapeños, green onions, sesame seeds and cooked chicken.
- Chicken: I seared two chicken thighs seasoned with salt and pepper until cooked through to 165 F. You can also use leftover rotisserie chicken, pork belly or a soft boiled egg for extra protein.
