Last night, I made dinner at my friend’s apartment who lives nearby. We couldnt decide on what to eat at first, we were hungry and wanted something quick and easy. Then I thought of ramen! Perfect! I love ramen, it’s so simple and it’s hard to get bored with it since you can add so many different things to it.
I made my usual vegan veggie broth for ramen:
In a food processor mix,
1 bell pepper
1 big yellow onion
3 garlic cloves
1 hot pepper
1 nub of ginger peeled and chopped
3 green onions
Add this mixture to a large pot with a splash of peanut or vegetable oil. Fry for 5 min.
Add 1 tablespoon turmeric, and 1/2 teaspoon white pepper.
Stir and add 4 cups or more of water and 2 to 3 vegetable cubes.
Add 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar and a splash of sesame oil.
I also fried 520g tofu (cut tofu and splash some hot chili sauce like Siracha, lime juice, and soy sauce in bowl - transfer to a plastic bag pour 1/4 cup cornstarch and shake). Then fry in a pan with vegetable or peanut oil until crispy. Set on paper towel lined plate.
Add rice noodles to soup and cook for 2 minutes. Now it’s ready to serve with all the toppings, including the tofu!
Other toppings: cilantro, lime, slice bell pepper, slices carrot, green onion, mushrooms, and bean sprouts.
