Easy Vegetarian Ramen

This is a super easy vegetarian ramen recipe to keep up your sleeve for those cold nights when you don’t have much time (or energy) to cook.

Just remember to always keep a few essential ingredients handy in your pantry (like the miso paste and some ramen noodles). You’ll thank yourself later when you’re desperately looking for a quick, healthy and delicious meal to whip up.

One of the things you’ll love about this recipe is how you can use up so many different vegetables from your Organic Fruit & Veggie Box. It can also be easily adapted if you don’t have all the suggested ingredients below. So feel free to play around with different vegetables, and if you’d prefer a vegan option you can just leave out the egg and off you go.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 teaspoons ginger, grated
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
