Great recipe for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. This super simple recipe takes ramen noodles out of the college dorm and transforms them into a nourishing bowl of soup that has impressively authentic flavor. Miso paste, soy sauce, and ginger give chicken broth a flavor makeover that tastes so good, you may want to sip it by itself! Here, we pour it over whole grain ramen noodles topped with fresh green veggies, shiitake mushrooms, a tasty carrot and garlic mixture, and chopped turkey breast. A hardboiled egg is the finishing touch.
