SIMPLE SESAME RAMEN


I love Asian dishes; bonus when they include noodles. This one is super simple to make too. It's got a little bit of spice to it, so if you like it hot, add more chili garlic sauce, sriracha or thai chili peppers. I used brown rice ramen noodles, but any noodles will work. Vegan oyster sauce is just vegetarian stirfry sauce. Yum.


INGREDIENTS

15 oz package extra firm tofu, drained & pressed

6 oz brown rice ramen noodles

3 Tbsp toasted sesame oil, divided

1 large carrot, sliced on the diagonal

3 baby bok choy

8 oz mushrooms, thickly sliced

3-4 scallions, sliced in 1" pieces

Sesame seeds

(STIR FRY SAUCE)

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 Tbsp water

2 Tbsp rice vinegar

1 Tbsp vegan oyster sauce(vegetarian stir fry sauce)

1.5 tsp sugar(I use coconut sugar)

2 tsp chili garlic sauce

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced


DIRECTIONS

1. Cook ramen noodles according to package directions. Rinse in cold water and set aside.


2. Combine ingredients for stir fry sauce in a medium sized bowl. Slice tofu into cubes. Slice baby bok choy into 1" pieces, separating white part from green.


3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 Tbsp sesame oil and 1 Tbsp of another high heat oil (I use avocado oil), cook tofu until browned, approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove tofu from skillet and add it to the bowl with the stirfry sauce.


4. Return skillet to medium-high heat with 2 Tbsp sesame oil. Stir fry carrots, mushrooms and white part of baby bok choy approximately 4 minutes. Add baby bok choy greens and continue to cook another 2 to 3 minutes.


5. Add noodles, scallions, tofu and stirfry sauce. Continue to cook until sauce is bubbling and noodles are cooked through, approximately 2 minutes. Sprinklevwith sesame seeds before serving.
