For the Noodles
- 200g ramen noodles
For the Toppings
- 2 The Very Good Butcher Smokin’ Bangers, cooked as per package instructions (1 per bowl) (Very British Bangers can be used too)
- 1 cup corn

- greens of the green onion
- Into a medium-sized pan heat sesame oil over medium heat. To the pan, add the garlic, ginger, whites of the green onion and cook till fragrant.

- Season to taste with some salt and white pepper (optional) if needed.
- Cook your ramen noodles and instructed on the package, strain well, and set aside.
- To assemble, add the noodles to a deep bowl, cover in soup broth, and top with corn, kimchi, bangers and the greens of the green onion.
Sesame Oil: If you do not have sesame oil use pure vegetable oil or olive oil.
Broad Bean Paste: If you cannot find a broad bean paste, use hoisin (vegan) sauce in it’s place.
Miso Paste: This fermented soybean paste is magical and highly recommended in this recipe. You can use red, yellow or white. Any will work but will each lend different flavors to the dish. I used white. i Soy Sauce: If you are gluten-free, use Tamari. If you are looking for something with less sodium, use coconut aminos.
Toppings: There is no wrong way to top this. Have fun with it and add what you and your family enjoy.
Storage: If you have leftovers I suggest storing the noodles and soup separately. The soup will last up to 1 week in the fridge in a jar or container. To recook, I recommend making new noodles with toppings and using the leftover soup. You may need to double the batch to have leftovers. If you want to freeze the soup, use the same method. Separate the ingredients, reheat, cook noodles, and top. Will last in the freezer for 2 months in a tightly sealed container or mouldable bag.
