EASY & DELICIOUS VEGAN RAMEN WITH HOISIN-GLAZED TOFU
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
6 oz bok choy (about 6 to 8 leaves with stems)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
4 Cups water
8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 Tbsp vegetable demi-glace or vegetable broth base
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp miso paste
6 oz vegan dry ramen noodles (2 blocks)
1 package extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
Sesame seeds for garnish
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Take the bok choy and separate the green leaves from the stems. Cut the stems into thin slices (julienne) and roughly chop the leaves. Set aside.
Prepare the rest of your vegetables by thinly slicing the scallions and separating the white bottoms and green tops. Slice the mushrooms and mince the garlic. Set aside.
Cut the pressed tofu into cubes and toss in a bowl with the garlic powder and cornstarch. Set aside.
Get started on the broth by heating 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a medium stock pot over medium heat.
Once hot, add the sliced bok choy stems, the white part of the scallions and the minced garlic.
Cook for a couple of minutes until the stems have softened and become fragrant.
Add the water, vegetable demi-glace, miso paste, soy sauce and sliced mushrooms.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer the broth for 6 to 8 minutes while you cook the tofu.
Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the seasoned tofu and cook until golden browned on all sides, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat.
With the pan still on the burner, but with the heat off, pour the hoisin sauce over the tofu and toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside while you finish the broth.
Add the ramen noodles and bok choy leaves to the broth, and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes stirring occasionally, or until the noodles are al dente.
Serve the broth and noodles in a bowl topped with the glazed tofu. Garnish with the green parts of the scallions.
