Gochujang Ramen with Tofu

Giving ramen an extra oomph! Gochujang or red chili paste is a savory, sweet, and spicy fermented condiment popular in Korean cooking. It is made from gochu-garu (chili powder), glutinous rice, meju (fermented soybean) powder, yeotgireum (barley malt powder), and salt.

  • 2 cup spinach
  • 1 package insant ramen
  • 7 oz tofu
  • 8 oz water

  • Step 1

    Drain the tofu and cut it into 1/2-inch cubes.

    Step 2

    Add the water, vegetable broth, and gochujang to a small sauce pot. Whisk until the gochujang is dissolved.

    Step 3

    Add the cubed tofu to the pot, place a lid on top, and bring it up to a boil over high heat.

    Step 4

    Once boiling, add the instant ramen noodles (without seasoning). Boil for one to two minutes, or just until the noodles begin to soften and pull loose from each other.

    Step 5

    Add two handfuls (about 2 cups) fresh spinach and stir it into the hot broth until wilted. The noodles will finish cooking as the spinach wilts.
