Ichiban Miso Ramen with Tofu and Green Onion

In all honesty, I don’t eat tofu. I have tried it before and I didn’t like it. My wife is vegetarian and even she doesn’t like it. But there is one dish in which we will both eat tofu, and that is miso soup at Japanese restaurants. PS – This recipe is vegetarian as far as I know, I don’t know what’s on the ingredients list on the ramen package!

    Ingredients

  • 1 Package of Sapporo Ichiban Miso Flavored Ramen
  • 1/3 Cube of Firm or Extra Firm Tofu, drained and cut into small cubes
  • Small amount of fresh Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. of Sesame Oil

Bring 2 cups of water to boil in a small saucepan. While waiting for the water to boil, add the Sesame Oil to a small frying pan and heat to Medium-High. Once the water is boiling, add the ramen noodles (I split the noodle brick in 2 halves). Boil the noodles for 3 minutes. While the noodles are boiling, add the chopped tofu to the frying pan and fry for 2 minutes. Stir constantly. After frying the tofu for 2 minutes, add the green onions and stir. Fry for one more minute. Reduce heat to medium. Once the noodles are done boiling, drain them until a small amount of water is left (About 1/3 cup). Add the seasoning packet to the saucepan and stir into the ramen/water mixture. Once the packet is dissolved, add the contents of the saucepan to the frying pan and stir. Cook for 2 minutes until the water is absorbed. Serve on a plate and enjoy. Feel free to add a small amount of ground red pepper for some spice. This is a great meal for less than $2.00 and I enjoy it all the time!
