This is my take on one of our Japanese favourites. Ramen has totally exploded in popularity in recent years, but what many people don’t realise is that it’s so easy to make at home when you want a warming meal. Chicken stock is great when you’re feeling run-down because it contains immune-boosting minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon and sulphur, which makes ramen such fantastic comfort food.
