There’s something that’s just so comforting about Ramen Noodles. I don’t know what it is, but I could eat them again and again (and I literally am having this again for dinner tonight). I was kinda bummed when I couldn’t eat the cheapo kind, you know… the college kid’s go-to meal, so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when I discovered Lotus Foods rice ramen noodles! I mean, I might have let a little squeal slip out at Whole Foods.
Once I noticed that Lotus Foods had these super cool looking black rice ramen noodles (which look more purple and therefore excited me all the more!), I couldn’t shake the idea of making miso soup. Mostly because I was visualizing how cool my pictures would look with purple noodles! Ah, the artist’s mind, ha. Anyway, back to the soup. So I remembered that I had some miso paste in my fridge that I needed to use up PERFECT! and not to mention, who doesn’t crave a nice healthy dose of veggies?! Yes, I’m becoming that gal… #sorrynotsorry And yes, this all raced through my brain while standing in aisle 4 staring at the noodles Ah, the woman’s brain!
I wanted to change it up just a tad from the traditional miso soup, which I certainly have a crush on all by itself, but I found out that miso also pairs well with tahini. And y’all know how I feel about tahini #swoon. So the broth has a hint of tahini flavor along with the salty goodness of the miso paste. You can easily make a batch ahead of time to have on hand for the coming week, I got 4 meals out of this batch! It also freezes well, so then all you’d have to do is cook up some ramen in 4 minutes, warm up some soup and it practically makes itself, which means lots of lunches and dinners with this on the menu. So now that I have you’re attention, are you in for one SOUPer dinner?!
Don’t forget to let me know if you try this recipe! Leave a comment and tag a picture on Instagram #healthylittlevittles so I can see what you came up with! Gotta go, soup’s on!
