Healthy Vegan Ramen Noodle Soup

Who said ramen noodles have to be unhealthy?! This can be a cheap pantry staple that is easily transformed from the ramen most of us were familiar with in dorm rooms, to a healthy dinner. Exclude the flavor packet that comes with your noodles, make some of your own stock, throw in some tofu and veggies and you’ve got yourself a delicious AND healthy meal! Don't hold back on seasoning the tofu; this food item can easily turn out bland unless seasoned well. Make an extra batch of the stock and freeze for later in the month!

  • 1 packet of sliced tofu, mixed in corn starch and salt
