Vegan Ramen with Creamy Sesame Broth


THE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 500 ml (2 cups) vegetable stock
  • 100 grams (3.5 oz) extra-firm tofu
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons neutral oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dark miso paste
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons sake
  • 1 green onion, white and light green parts sliced into very thin matchsticks for frying and dark green parts thinly sliced for garnish
  • 4 – 6 leaves of bok choy, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil, plus more for garnish
  • 2 servings of ramen noodles (packaged or fresh)



INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put the vegetable stock in a pot and leave it over low heat to warm up while you prepare the rest of the soup ingredients.
  2. Mash the tofu with a fork until it’s crumbled. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a small pan over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and fry, stirring occasionally, until crispy and golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the miso paste with 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and stir well to dissolve.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, push the tofu to one side of the pan and add the garlic and ginger. Fry, stirring, until fragrant and cooked through then stir the tofu back in. Add the soy sauce-miso paste mixture and the sake. Allow the liquid to boil off and fry the tofu for a couple minutes more to allow it to crisp up again. Remove to a plate.
  5. Add 1 – 2 tablespoons more of oil to the pan (depends how big your pan is, you want a layer of oil deep enough to cover the matchstick green onions) and allow to heat up. Add the sliced white parts of the green onions and allow to gently fry for 5 – 10 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to the boil.
  7. In a bowl combine the tahini, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, rice vinegar and chili oil. Mix well.
  8. Cook the bok choy in the boiling water until the stems are tender. Remove to a plate. Now add the ramen noodles to the pot and cook according to the package directions (for fresh noodles they just need 30 – 60 seconds).
  9. Divide the tahini mixture between two bowls and ladle over the hot stock while stirring well to combine. Add the noodles and top with the bok choy, tofu, fried green onions and fresh green onions. Serve with additional chili oil for drizzling over top.
