Spicy Korean “Ramen” Noodle Soup

To make garlic paste, put 2-3 garlic cloves in a mortar, add a dash of salt and pound to a paste. I used Mini Chicken & Cilantro Wontons from Costco's. For an extra spicy version, substitute cabbage kimchi for baby bok choy and stir in more red pepper paste.

Noodle Soup

  • 6 cooked gyoza or wontons
  • 2 cups cooked soba noodles

  1. Mix together Spicy Red Pepper Paste ingredients in a small bowl. You will only need 2 teaspoons for this recipe so reserve the rest.
  2. Bring chicken broth and 2 teaspoons Spicy Red Pepper Paste to a boil over medium heat. Add bok choy and break eggs into broth to poach. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for a minute. Add gyoza (or wontons) and cooked soba noodles. Cook for 3 minutes to heat gyoza and noodles through.
  3. Divide soup, noodles, vegetables, eggs and gyoza between two bowls. Sprinkle with scallions and serve.
