One of my favorite meals growing up was a good ol’ 10 cent package of Top Ramen. Now that I’m a parent, I can’t bring myself to feed my family that stuff considering I don’t have a clue what most the ingredients are. That hasn’t stopped me from having a craving for it every once in a while so I developed this recipe. My children absolutely love it and paired with a salad, it’s a great meal to make when you don’t have a lot of time on those busy weeknights!

  • 1-1 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup dried shitake mushrooms,
    reconstituted in warm water & chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp brown rice miso
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 package firm tofu, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 8 ounces udon noodles (or somen noodles)
  • Sriracha, to taste
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped

  1. Over medium high heat add olive oil to stock pot and saute onion until it is translucent (about 3-4 minutes).  
  2. Add garlic, celery & carrot to the pan and cook until tender, about 4-5 minutes.   
  3. Add mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add stock and bring to boil.
  5. Add miso, liquid aminos (or soy sauce), sesame oil & sriracha to level of heat desired.
  6. Bring a separate pot of water to boil on stove and cook noodles according to package directions.
  7. Add the tofu and rice vinegar to the stock.
  8. Serve each bowl with noodles and stock and top with chopped green onion.

This soup would also be excellent with some fresh grated ginger or topped with cilantro.  Mix it up and make it your own.  This is a big winner in our house with the kiddos and a great and much more healthful alternative to the typical packaged ramen soups.

*You can lower the sodium in this recipe by substituting low-sodium stock & low-sodium soy sauce.
