This vegetarian ramen soup gets its full flavor from several different umami-rich ingredients like mushrooms and miso paste. Umami is the fifth of the basic tastes like sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. The word directly translates in Japanese to “pleasant savory taste” but it’s more commonly known as “delicious” in the culinary world. A rich broth combined with green vegetables and springy fresh noodles make this dish a comforting, hearty option for a chilly night.

Miso & Shiitake Ramen with Hoisin-Glazed Tofu ingredients
  • 6 Ounces Choy Sum
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Scallions

  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Demi-Glace
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Miso Paste
  • ¼ Cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 12 Ounces Fresh Ramen Noodles
