Ramen is actually the name for the whole dish. So the stock with the noodles. In Japan, they usually add toppings like pork slices and an egg. Also, they always add a piece of nori seaweed (eg. wakame) and spring onions. Toppings like furikake or gomasio complete the dish.
Would you rather skip the pork? We do this too! That’s why all of our ramen recipes are vegan. This proves that you don’t need meat at all to get a soup full of flavour and bite.
What is the difference between the typical Japanese noodles ramen, soba and udon?

You cook ramen in 3 minutes. After a minute or two, gently pull them apart with a fork. Are you making a real Japanese ramen or miso broth? Then cook them for the last 3 minutes.
Do you prefer to prepare them like you do with instant noodles? Or do you only have a kettle at hand and no gas stove? Bring water to a boil, put in a saucepan with a lid and let the “cakes” soak for 8-10 minutes.
