2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Start the tempeh

Bring a large sauce pot of water to a boil for the ramen.
  • Crumble or cut the tempeh into ¼-inch pieces.
In a large frying pan, combine the tempeh and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the tempeh and transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
While the tempeh cooks, boil the ramen.


Cook the ramen

To the pot of boiling water, stir in the ramen and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Wipe out the pot.
While the water heats and the ramen cooks, prepare the soup ingredients.


Prep the soup ingredients; cook the soup

  • Cut the mushrooms into quarters.
  • Trim the root end from the bok choy; thinly slice the bok choy on the diagonal.
  • Juice the lemon.
In the same pot used for the ramen, add the tamari, kombu, and 3 cups [5 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the liquid is thickened slightly, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, bok choy, and lemon juice and cook until the vegetables are just softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the kombu, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the soup cooks, prepare the mint and the tempeh.


Prep the garnish; crisp the tempeh

  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear or chop the leaves, if desired.
In the same pan used to soften the tempeh, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the tempeh and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.


Transfer the ramen to individual bowls and ladle in the soup. Top with the tempeh, garnish with the shichimi togarashi and mint, and serve.
