Quick Weeknight Ramen

It’s taken many years but Nick declared this might have been our best tofu to date! Get out the fireworks y’all, cause it was tasty too!

A lot of you have asked about the frequency of ramen and what to do with it. Well, similar to our weekly pizza night, a weekly ramen night has started to emerge as well! As I’ve started to perfect how we make tofu (which I’ll try to share later), it’s made it so easy to just grab some ramen noodles which cook almost instantly, saute some greens or any veggies you have and saute up some tofu. And there you have it, a super tasty and savory dish, ready in no time!

This has become something that really you can interchange ingredients, for whatever you have in the fridge this week. So experiment away and let me know what ramen bowls you come up with!
