From the Test Kitchen

We love fresh ramen. The springy, tender noodles and endless array of toppings make Japanese soups delicious and exciting. But when the weather is warm, we don’t always want a hot meal. That’s why we’re pleased to bring you our recipe for hiyashi chuka, a cool, brothless ramen dish traditionally served in summertime. You’ll top it with fresh tomatoes, corn, cool cucumbers and one of our signature summer spice blends.
