Spicy Tamari Ramen Noodles

Spicy Tamari Ramen Noodles | Well and Full | #vegetarian #recipe

Noodles, noodles – how I love thee. Well, really any form of pasta. Well, really any form of shaped wheat flour. Actually – carbs. I love carbs. Oh, how I love thee!!

That being said, I feel like I get on food “kicks” where I’m constantly craving a certain food or cuisine, that usually last about a week or so. One time it was veggie burritos from Chipotle. Another time, nothing but vegan chickpea salads would do. And more recently, I went on a serious ramen kick. There’s just something about hot broth and noodles that I will always love, in virtually any iteration. But when I was developing this recipe, I was craving more of a stir-fried situation, and thus these spicy tamari ramen noodles were born.

And I do want to add something before I go – like I mentioned on Instagram, I’ll be having less time to work on recipes because of a need that has arisen in my family. There were a ton of vegan/vegetarian Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes that I wanted to bring to you, but I don’t know if they’ll all be in the cards for this year. While I am a little bummed that I won’t be able to share these recipes with you, I feel proud to know that I am helping out my family. But still, I just wanted to mention it, in case you were wondering why I’m posting a ramen recipe when Thanksgiving is right around the corner ;)

Again, thank you SO MUCH for continuing to support me and this blog. I couldn’t even describe how deeply grateful I am for all of you. And I promise one day I’ll make it up to you by putting out a TON of awesome recipes…. maybe in a cookbook? ;)


P.S. These noodles are easily adapted to be vegan!! Woohoo!!

Spicy Tamari Ramen Noodles

These spicy tamari ramen noodles are a grown-up twist on the classic college snack. Coming together in 30 minutes, they're the perfect delicious weeknight lunch or dinner.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2

Ingredients

Spicy Tamari Ramen Noodles

  • 3 Packs Ramen Noodles flavor packets discarded
  • Oil For Cooking
  • 1 Shallot finely diced
  • 1/2 Inch Knob Ginger grated or minced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic finely minced
  • 1/4 Cup Tamari
  • 4 Tbs Butter
  • 1 Tbs Sriracha
  • Squeeze Fresh Lime Juice
  • Black Pepper to taste

Possible Accoutrements

  • Soft Boiled Eggs
  • Sprouts or Cilantro
  • Lime Slices

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add in the ramen noodles and cook until al dente, 3-4 minutes. When done, drain water from noodles and set aside.

  2. Bring a glug of oil (any neutral vegetable oil will do) to medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add in the shallot and cook until slightly softened. Then, add in the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about a minute. (Watch to make sure garlic doesn't brown.)

  3. Add in the cooked noodles and toss with the aromatics. Then, add in butter, tamari, sriracha, and a squeeze of lime juice. Toss the noodles until they're evenly covered, and sauté for a few minutes more.

  4. When done, remove noodles from heat and serve in bowls. Add in whatever toppings you like. 

  5. Another option is to serve noodles as a side with stir-fried veggies and scrambled eggs.

  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

To make vegan, replace the butter in the recipe with about 3 Tbs neutral vegetable oil (like grapeseed or safflower), and omit the eggs :)
