When I started eating lots of vegan recipes, at first it seemed daunting. How would I feed myself? But i quickly realized they can be some of the most creative, delicious and beautiful recipes out there!
Fast forward to today, and i’ve devoted my life to inspiring people to eat lots of vegetables in delicious ways. My forte? Veggie-packed recipes that are tasty, healthy, and pretty simple to make. You have 3 chances per day to eat yummy foods plant based. Why not start now?
This “Vegan Miso Ramen” makes eating food plant-based fun, healthy, and most importantly: delicious!
- 6 cups filtered water
- 1 1/2 tbsp vegan bouillon paste (I used vegetarian “Beef”)
- 3 green onions
- 3 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- 1 can slices bamboo shoots (8 ounce can)
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 1/2 tbsp miso paste
- 1/2 cup spinach, roughly chopped
- Small bunch cilantro, for garnish
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 4 ounces Cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 2 ramen noodle packets (each 3.5 ounces… toss out the seasoning packets and only use noodles)
- 1/2 container firm tofu (7 ounces), cubed
- 1 1/2 tbsp corn starch
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Avocado oil or coconut oil
Bring water to a boil then add bouillon paste, garlic, ginger, sliced bamboo shoots and green onions to a boil. Boil for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare toppings. In a large pan heat 1 tsp coconut oil or oil of choice. Add frozen corn, mushrooms and spinach and sauté for 3 minutes or until all cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
For the Crispy tofu place tofu cubes on a large plate. Season tofu will salt then evenly dust the corn starch over to tofu. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add 1 1/2 tsp avocado oil or coconut oil. Add tofu and cook for 1-2 minutes on each size of the tofu cube. On the same pan make room for the avocado, slice avocado and cook on both sides for 1 minute! (I used a grill pan, so if you want the grill marks, go for it!)
Add the miso paste to the broth and ensure it fully dissolves. Simmer for 2 additional minutes then place a strainer over a large bowl.
Return the strained broth to a large pot, bring broth to a boil then add ramen noodles, cook for 3 minutes or until noodles are cooked (may vary depending on brand of noodles and directions on the package.)
Divide noodles between two bowls, add the spinach,avocado, corn, crispy tofu, mushrooms, chopped cilantro and a slice lime. Enjoy!
