Optional Finishing Touches:

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Tofu: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Press most of the water out of the tofu. Cut into cubes. Toss gently in a bowl with the cornstarch until coated. (Next time I am going to try dredging the cubes in cornstarch on a plate to get more coverage and see if that makes them crispier and more tasty. I will let you know.) Drizzle with oil and soy sauce. Transfer to baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden and crispy. Toss with a little bit of hoisin sauce.

2. Chopping: While tofu bakes, chop the vegetables.

3. Vegetables: Heat the oil in a large, deep pot over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and bok choy. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, until soft. Add garlic, ginger, and curry powder. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, until fragrant.

4. Noodles: Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Add ramen noodles and simmer until cooked (usually takes 3-4 minutes). Add coconut milk. Season with salt and lime juice.

5. Finish: Serve ramen and broth in bowls, topped with tofu, sesame oil, sesame seeds green onion..you get the idea. Grab your chopsticks and Go. To. Town!
