The ramen certainly looked delicious, but when we brought the first packet of noodles to our lips, we weren’t sure what to expect from such an unorthodox combination of ingredients. However, we didn’t have to worry as everything blended together harmoniously with the grated garlic adding a fantastic depth of flavor against the acidity of the yogurt making each bite light and refreshing.
The fresh cucumber, sesame, and chopped walnut added textural accents to the whole dish, while the parsley tied it all together beautifully. It was a truly fantastic meal, and we think even fresh dill would be another great optional addition to increase the level of herbal goodness in the dish.
