This simple miso ramen is loaded with vegan, plant-based protein and plenty of flavorful veggies. You won’t miss the ramen noodles in this lighter, spiralized version.
Miso Zoodle Ramen with Crispy Tofu
Welcome to 2021! It’s our first recipe of the New Year, and I figured it would only be appropriate to start off with a simple, spiralized zucchini recipe. And what better recipe than a ramen!?
I love zucchini noodles in ramen, because the noodles don’t get soggy in soup and they absorb all the flavors of the broth, so each bite is flavorful. I’m a big fan of miso and I’ve made a couple of miso ramens on this blog before, but this one is by far the most basic and needs to make your weeknight menu.
The key? Keep the ingredients simple (just garlic, onions, broth, miso paste, zoodles and carrots) and top with a powerful plant-based protein like crispy tofu. This tofu is so simple to make, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make it! It softens slightly in the broth but still retains its crunch and for all of the tofu-weary out there, this may change your minds!
How to make crispy tofu in the air fryer
- Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees
- Drain tofu of excess moisture. Cube the tofu.
- Toss tofu cubes with arrowroot powder and season with salt and pepper
- Place tofu in the air fryer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown!
Cheers to 2021 and more easy, simple, quick and flavorful meals!
