Now how's this for turning something dull and bland into a feast for the eyes and mouth? We upscaled Ramen! We also made it substantially more filling and satiating by adding fresh vegetables and vegan beef strips.
Vegan Upscaled Ramen a.k.a. Mr. Noodles
1 package of Vegan Ramen (read the label!)
about 3 handfuls of sugar snap peas (fresh)
1 red bell pepper
1 clove garlic
1/2 sweet onion
1 package of vegan beef strips (we used Yves Meatless Beef Strips)
Red chili pepper flakes
Cook ramen according to package directions. Set aside. We also drained off some of the liquid because we didn't want a soupy dish.
Sautee the vegetables in some oil on the stovetop. Once they get browned up, remove them from the heat and set aside.
Now, fry up the beef strips in the same frying pan until golden and warmed through.
Finally, assemble your bowl with the ramen, vegetables, and beef strips. You can drizzle on some soy sauce or tamari and red pepper chili flakes for extra flavour.
