  1. Cook the ramen with the kimchi. In a large soup pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the ramen cakes, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook until they're soft, but slightly undercooked -- about 2 minutes. Add the kimchi and brining liquid, and stir to blend.

  2. Add the eggs. Keeping the heat on low, crack the eggs into broth, a good few inches apart. Cover the pot with a fitted lid to poach the eggs -- this should take 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Serve and garnish. Use a ladle to add the the soup to two large serving bowls, spooning the egg on top last. Garnish with a sprinkling of Togarashi and serve!

Recipe Notes

You can find ramen cakes in most Asian markets, but you can also use Top Ramen (really). Just discard the flavor packet.
