From the Test Kitchen

This stunning ramen dish gets its incredible depth from black garlic—or garlic aged under special conditions, softening it and transforming its piquancy into a robust, molasses-like sweetness. Its sweet and earthy notes infuse our noodles and broth, complementing hearty shiitakes and velvety soft-boiled eggs. Green beans, blanched to heighten their verdant flavor, add an element of satisfying crispness. We’re seasoning the dish with furikake (a Japanese condiment typically made of crushed, dried seaweed and sesame seeds) and—as a garnish for the eggs—pure, delicate sea salt, provided by Jacobsen Salt Co.

Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs and cook for exactly 6 minutes. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Refill the pot with salted water and heat to boiling on high. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs. Set aside in a warm place.

While the eggs cook, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps. Peel and mince the black garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Snap off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; carefully slice in half lengthwise.
