Sansai Ramen

A while back, we went to Chopstix in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood of San Diego because Youngest had a ramen craving, and I'm trying to wean her off of the $0.20 a bag MSG-laden crap from the grocery store. I had sansai ramen for the first time, and loved it.

A few weeks later, I was at Mitsuwa market, and spotted a bag of sansai vegetables. I thought, why not make my own sansai ramen? So I picked up the bag o' veggies, some fresh ramen noodles, and a package of fish cake.

Slice and fry up the fish cake (you can't see it in the picture, unfortunately), heat the veggies, cook the noodles, make the broth. There. You now have ramen. Yeah, I cheated and used the packet of concentrated broth that came with the noodles. But it was MSG-free. So there.

Awesome, I love good ramen. I always use the packaged stuff since I don't have a decent asian market around here, but I don't use the seasoning packet either. Well, not much... :D

Hey Bob - I think instead of a Starbucks on every corner, there should be a ramen shop on every corner. I'd be much happier :)
