I LOVE NOODLES! It’s something I definitely cannot give up in my life.
I spent my days at university eating noodles (more than I like to admit), so this recipe is definitely inspired by those late night evenings of being a broke university student.
We all know instant noodles are not the healthiest meal around, but this recipe shows you how to revamp your noodles into a nutritious and even more satisfying meal!
The real important player of this recipe is the miso ginger dressing. If you are not familiar with miso, it is a fermented soybean paste that provides an excellent source of minerals. Ginger, a wonderful herb, helps with gastrointestinal issues, nausea, and so much more.
To save time, I used a strip slicer (julienne slicer) to cut the carrots. It’s okay if you don’t have one, you can julienne the carrots by hand. You will notice I reuse carrots and scallions in the dressing, it adds a great texture.
Let's get started!
- 2 packets of brown rice ramen (or Mr. Noodles if you like)
- 2 carrots
- 1 stalk of scallions
Dressing (makes about 500 mL)
- 2 tbsp. Genmai miso (or chickpea
- 1.5 tbsp. Liquid aminos (tamari or soy
- sauce works too)
- 1 tbsp. honey
- ½ lemon
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 whole Fresh ginger root
- ½ carrot
- 1 stalk of scallions
Optional: add cilantro or Thai chillies for extra flavour & kick!
- Boil ramen according to package instructions
- Once al-dente, run noodles under cold water to stop further cooking and set aside.
- Slice carrots, scallions, Thai chilli, and cilantro
- Measure out dressing ingredients
- Chop up carrots, ginger, and scallions to fit into your blender
- Add 1 cup of water and blend
- Throw in the rest of the liquids & miso paste
- Continue to blend for 1 minute
- In a large bowl, combine ramen with all the veggies
- Add about 3 tbsp. of the dressing
- Toss with tongs
- ENJOY YOUR NOODLES!
To make the ramen salad heartier, add grilled tofu or chicken. For another added bonus, add zoodles (zucchini noodles) for more nutrients and veggies.
Pack this into a mason jar or any container and you're set for lunch the next day too.
