Ingredients

  • 1 block super firm tofu fried
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp white miso
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 48 oz. vegetable broth (6 cups)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 8 oz. ramen noodles
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  • Fry the tofu ahead of time or while the ramen is simmering. You can follow these instructions on how to fry tofu.
  • Sauté green onions, mushrooms and garlic with a bit of olive oil in a large skillet or dutch oven for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the soy sauce, miso, syrup, sesame oil, and vegetable broth and bring soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Next, add spinach and ramen noodles and simmer for 2-3 minutes until the noodles are cooked. Last, add most of the tofu and stir.
  • Serve ramen with the rest of the fried tofu, additional green onions and fresh cilantro.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Prepping ahead: 1. If you make the ramen ahead of time, you may need to add 1-2 cups of water to the ramen because the noodles may absorb some of the broth; 2. Don't add the tofu until you're ready to eat it, otherwise, it could get soggy. 
Substitutions: Can use tamari instead of soy sauce, and gluten free ramen instead of regular ramen noodles.
