Vegetarian Pad Thai Ramen

I know there’s still an on-going debate on whether ramen and especially the flavor packets are vegetarian, but this one doesn’t have any meat in it, so at least it’s a partial qualifier!

    Ingredients

  • 2 ramen packages (I prefer chicken or beef, experiment and find your favorites)
  • 1 16oz package Extra Firm Tofu
  • 1 bag frozen stir fry vegetables
  • Soy Sauce
  • Sesame Oil
  • Peanut Sauce (can make or buy)

Drain tofu and slice or cube into bite sized-ish pieces. Place in bowl, add 1 ramen flavoring packet, soy sauce, and a good shake of sesame oil to marinate. Let tofu marinate for 1 to 2 hours.

Cook ramen noodles, throwing the 2nd seasoning packet into the cupboard for later use. Meanwhile, toss the veggies into a pan and stir-fry away until cooked. Add tofu with enough of the remaining liquid to keep it from sticking, continue to heat, stirring gently, until tofu is heated. Add ramen noodles, mix them in well, allow them to absorb most of the remaining liquid in the pan. Toss it onto a couple plates (will feed 2-4 people, depending on appetite), season to taste with more sesame oil, top with peanut sauce. Enjoy!
