Quick & Easy Spicy Fresh Ramin Noodle Soup With Tofu & Snow Peas

A very simple, yet satisfying meatless noodle soup that is very nourishing and gives such a comfort to those who have had a long hectic day at work. This recipe is very quick and simple to make, and also easily doubles to feed a large family. Use the recipe just as a guide. Serves 2 to 4


11 oz fresh Ramin noodles (can be bought at a Japanese store)
enough water to boil the Ramin
1 - 2 tsp sesame oil 

For Spicy Soup:

1 tbs canola oil
1cup roughly chopped  green scallions
2 cups snow peas
2 cups chopped cabbage
1 red jalapeno pepper (I think it is called Fresno pepper), sliced
4 cups (or more) water or chicken stock
1 - 2 tbs goujang (Korean red pepper paste)
1 tbs sambal oelek (Indonesian red peper sauce)
1/4 cup reduced sodium shoya sauce
1 package ( 14 oz) fresh firm tofu, cubed
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
salt as needed
freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add fresh ramin, and cook according to package direction (about 2 minutes). Drain in a colander, immediately rinse under cold running water. Drain completely, then drizzle  about 1 to 2 teaspoons sesame oil,  mix it to coat. Coating the noodle with sesame oil not only prevents the ramin sticking together, but also will add some nutty flavor to it. Place cooked ramin into 2 bowls. Set aside while you are making the soup.

Heat a  large soup pot over medium heat, add canola oil. Wait for a few second until the oil is hot, add chopped scallions, fry for a few seconds. Add snow peas, cabbage, and jalapeno pepper, stir fry for 30 seconds. Pour in water or vegetable stock, add goujang, sambal oelek, and shoya sauce, bring to a boil. Add tofu, lower the heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Add cilantro, and freshly ground black pepper, stir, taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Ladle the soup into noodle  bowls, and serve immediately.
