You know what I have decided?

30 Minute Chicken Ramen with Miso Roasted Brussels Sprouts + Ginger Butter | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

I’ve decided I am subconsciously preparing to get my wisdom teeth pulled by making as many soups as possible

UGH. Yes, I did say get my wisdom teeth pulled. I know, I know, what a drag. My dentist back in Ohio actually told me like five years ago that I really need to have them pulled. I went into denial mode and instead I waited, and waited. I didn’t go to the dentist for five years, even though I was feeling slight pain. I waited some more and then finally, I went to the dentist yesterday. Unfortunately, my wisdom teeth did not disappear. They definitely need to come out within the next six months…and it’s gonna be $395 a tooth. Ahhh, what?!?

Apparently when you hit the ripe old age of 22, you get kicked off the parents dental insurance and you’re all on your own. Like just kicked to the curb. Errrr. Since I work for myself, that means I need to pay my own dental.

Really?

Life as an adult…it just keeps getting better and better.

The first available time slot for my wisdom teeth was December 19th. NOOO. I couldn’t get my wisdom teeth pulled on the very same day my entire family is flying in for Christmas. I mean, the doc said I had to “take it easy” (what does that even mean?) for a few days. A few days! I can’t sit still for five minutes, let alone a few days.

And definitely not in December. I just couldn’t.

So January it is. New year and a couple fewer teeth. Yahoooo!

But umm, really, $395 + $395 = $790 big ones. I can buy so much with that. Think of all the pretty dishes….oh or maybe think of the two pairs of boots I am dying for. Yes, I would SO rather spend that money on boots. Wisdom teeth, you officially stink!

Anyway, my teeth really have nothing to do with this soup, other than the fact that I plan on making this the day I get my teeth pulled. The doc said soft foods only…polenta, mashers, soup and ahhh hot chocolate! Cool, cool, I can do soft foods!!

Ok but really, this 30 Minute Chicken Ramen Soup.

I have to give my self a big high-five cause I was able to make an easy version for you guys. And well, you all know that’s kind of a big deal for me! I can’t lie, I like recipes with steps and easy recipes don’t really come EASY to me. But I did it, and this soup is so GOOD!

Hello, ginger butter!!

And roasted brussels sprouts, my favorite! No seriously, they are my favorite. I have them almost daily in the fall and winter months.

Here’s the deal, the brussels sprouts roast while the soup cooks making this meal QUICK. And the chicken + noodles just go right into the soup, saving you about a zillion pots and pans.

I’m telling you, this recipe is a real winner. And aside from the butter, this recipe is light and healthy. I mean let’s be real, you know I could convince you that this butter is semi-healthy since it’s loaded with ginger, which we all know fights off almost all things bad. Meaning, if you have a cold or are feeling a little run down, this is the soup you NEED in your life.

Plus, there are new studies out that say that butter might not be bad for us after all, maybe even good for us. If you’re interested, check out what Bon Appetit has to say.

While I adore the soup, the brussels sprouts are my favorite. I also love the salty flavor the miso leaves. It’s perfect and when used as a topping for this ramen?!?

Ahh, it is the best!

I’m not sure much beats a delicious AND quick ramen. Especially on a dark and rainy day, like today 🙁 Thinking it’s time for a another bowl!

Ingredients

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ramen

  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth or veggie broth
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms OR 2 cups button mushrooms sliced/chopped
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
  • 1/2-1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders or small chicken thighs*
  • 8 ounces frozen spinach thawed
  • 4 packs Ramen noodles seasoning packets discarded
  • 4 soft boiled eggs
  • toasted sesame seeds for serving
  • sliced carrots green onions, jalapenos + fresno chilies, basil, cilantro + limes, for serving

Ginger Butter

Instructions

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • On a large baking sheet, toss together the brussels sprouts, olive oil, miso paste and pepper until the brussels sprouts are well coated. Spread the sprouts in an even layer and roast fro 20-25 minutes or until the brussels sprouts are lightly charred and caramelized. I like to toss my sprouts around halfway through cooking. Depending on how you cut your brussels sprouts, they may cook quicker or slower.

Ramen

  • Place a large soup pot over medium heat and add the sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Cook 30 seconds to 1 minute and then slowly pour in the chicken broth. Add the mushrooms, soy sauce and sambal oelek. Bring the soup to a boil, add the chicken and then simmer for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken from the soup and add the spinach. Shred with two forks or your hands. Return the chicken to the soup along with the ramen noodle. Cook until the ramen is just soft, about 2 minutes.
  • To make the ginger butter, combine the butter and ginger in a small pan set over medium heat, cook until the butter is melted and the ginger is fragrant.
  • To serve, divide the soup among the bowls. Top with soft boiled eggs and sprinkle the eggs with pepper. Add the sesame seeds and roasted brussels sprouts. Drizzle the bowl with ginger butter. Enjoy hot!

Notes

*I like using a 1/2 pound of chicken. To make this vegetarian, just omit the chicken. **Once you add the ramen noodles to the soup, the soup needs to be served immediately or the noodles will soak up all the broth.

  1. the product was delicious, but this took me closer to 1 hour 30 minutes to complete, even beginning with a pre-cooked, smoked chicken. i did add one extra step – cut some grilled corn off the cob & added the kernels at the end, used the cobs in the broth. i added some extra liquid at the end, too, because the flavor was plenty intense and i wanted more broth. lovely bowl of ramen, all told, but i should not have expected this to be a quick dinner. i would consider this more of a project dinner.

  2. Hi – this recipe looks amazing! I’ve never used miso paste before and didn’t realize how clumpy/paste-y it is. Am I supposed to blend it with the olive oil first, before mixing with the Brussel sprouts so that I can get it to evenly spread? Can you please explain the process? Thank you. 🙂

    1. Hi!! You can just simply toss the Brussels with the miso as directed. It will evenly coat that way and then kind of melt into the Brussels as they roast. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks so much!!

    1. Have you ever been on a food blog before? Like, ever? This is kind of how they work. How hard is it to scroll down to the recipe?

  3. I am VERY excited to try this out! I do have a question, though – is there any sort of replacement I could use for the sambal oelek? I can’t find any at the grocery stores closest to me. And (as much as it pains me to say it), will it be okay without the ginger? I love ginger, but I’m allergic to it and can only use it in very, very small quantities; the amount called for here would be too much for me.

    1. HI!! Just use a good pinch of crushed red pepper flakes. Yes, it will be fine without the ginger. Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

  4. I will be requesting this when my wisdom teeth come out next Friday. Thank you for the recipe!

    Also, as another poster mentioned, you should still be eligible for your parents health insurance. My daughter is 23 and still on ours. (Thanks Obama! No, really though, thanks!) It might be worth checking into. Good luck with your extractions. Once it’s done, we’ll never have to worry about those pesky wisdom teeth again! I will try to remember to post back in a couple of weeks and tell you how easy and painless it was.

  5. OMG. I just made this veganized, and it was AMAZING! YUM! Definitely going into our rotation. Thank you!

    I made it with fake chicken, No-Chicken chicken broth and sans the eggs.

  6. This looks amazing! Definitely going to try this once it gets a little colder 🙂 and I feel you on the wisdom teeth – I WORK at the dentist and still have mine. Oops.

  7. I just made this for my husband for dinner tonight – it was unbelievable!! Can’t say it took me 30 minutes, so many moving parts with toasting sesame seeds, boiling eggs, etc – but even the little extra effort was so worth it. The miso and the ginger butter add such a wonderful savoriness to the dish. The broth was perfect. This is going on the repeat list for sure!

  8. With Obama care most dental insurance follow the age 26 rule. Check to see if u can be added to their plan. Usually does not matter if you are a student, married or etc

  9. this looks amazing!! and don’t be afraid, in most cases it’s so fast to pull it. mine took 5 min and then it was out 🙂 good luck <3

  10. Made this tonight. SO good. Added 3 more cups of chicken broth and made a sub for white miso paste cuz I couldn’t find any in a regular grocery and had no time to go to an Asian one. Lots of prep work but comes together quickly and that flavor….yum

  11. After all day in the kitchen, I need a quick meal like this! Love the miso roasted brussels – they look perfectly crispy! 🙂
