Ramen noodle soup with Dale's seasoned soaked egg


1 tbsp + 1 tsp. sugar

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 cup Dale's Reduced Sodium Blend, divided

4 large eggs

1 tbsp + 1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 tbsp finely chopped garlic

2 tbsp peeled, finely choped fresh ginger

6 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth

1/4 cup Dale's Reduced Sodium Blend

3 cups shredded red cabbage

1/2 tsp kosher salt

3 tbsp rice vinegar

4 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced

4 3 oz. packages ramen noodles, seasoning packets discarded

Chili-garlic paste (optional), for serving


Place 6 tablespoons of water in a medium bowl.

Microwave for 30 seconds on high, then whisk in 1 tablespoon of sugar until completely dissolved.

Stir in the vinegar and ¾ cup Dale’s Reduced Sodium Blend.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil.

Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare a large bowl with ice water.

When finished cooking, transfer the eggs to the ice bath.

Peel the cooled eggs and transfer them to the Dale’s mixture.

Submerge completely by placing a small plate over top.

Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.

Remove the eggs from the Dale’s mixture.

Set aside. (These can be held in the refrigerator, out of the liquid, for 1 day.)

In a small bowl, toss the cabbage with the rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon of sugar, salt and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.

Massage with hands to dress the cabbage.

Set aside for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a large pot over medium heat.

Add 1 tablespoon sesame oil, then the garlic and ginger; cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the broth and Dale’s Reduced Sodium Blend.

Stir well to combine.

Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Once the broth is simmering, add the ramen noodles.

Reduce heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the eggs to reheat, simmer 1 additional minute.

Divide noodles and eggs into 6 bowls.

Top evenly with marinated cabbage, scallions and chili paste, if desired. (Eggs can be cut in half lengthwise before serving)
