  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to boil.

  3. In another saucepan of boiling water, cook the noodles according to packet instructions.
  4. Bring a final small saucepan of water to boil. Add a generous pinch of salt and cook the Tenderstem broccoli for a couple of minutes. Drain and allow it to steam whilst you prepare the rest of the dish.
  5. To make the ramen broth, add the stock, ginger, garlic, spring onion and shiitake mushrooms to a saucepan and bring to boil. Cook for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  6. Slice the cooked chicken breast and add to the broth to heat through (until piping hot).
  7. Add the sliced red pepper and cook for a couple of minutes more.
  8. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  9. Take the broth off the heat and stir in the soy sauce.
