Improved Instant Ramen

I eat a lot of instant ramen but generally minus the broth and stir-fried. While battling a cold this week I decided to eat it with the broth. I cooked the ramen in water along with a veggie bouillon cube, garlic, onion and turmeric powders. THe only veggie I had on hand was Brussels sprouts so I shaved and included them. I also crumbled up some tofu jerky. Was really good.

For the jerky I patted dry and thinly sliced extra firm tofu and dipped it in a mixture of tamari, liquid smoke and garlic salt. I then roasted in a 200 degree oven for 3 hours.

Finely dice, slice, matchstick or whatever all of the veggies. Place veggies, rice and gochujang sauce on a whole wheat, burrito size, flour tortilla and roll.

Tofu Chow Fun

We both thought this was pretty good. I couldn’t find wide rice noodles (not even at the Asian market) so I used these broken up rice sheets labeled as “rice sticks”. If I make again I’d probably just roast the tofu instead of pan fry.
