Kabocha Squash + Avocado + Cabbage
Kabocha, a winter squash also known as Japanese pumpkin, is an unexpected ramen mix-in—and it gets bonus points since it doesn't need to be peeled (though you can swap in peeled butternut or acorn squash, pumpkin or sweet potato). Volger also tosses thinly sliced green, savoy or Napa cabbage (uncooked, so it doesn't get soggy) into this gingery ramen soup, and tops it with wedges of avocado for a colorful meal that's perfectly balanced.
