Easy Vegan Tofu Curry Ramen

Ever since our last trip to Thailand this past winter, we have been enjoying curries in all sorts of combinations. Plant-based or meat-based, with a side of rice or with noodles, in soups and sauces. We absolutely love a good curry, as it’s the ultimate comfort food. Plus it’s really easy to make, fast and somehow always turns out delicious.

Our summer sucks this year. I am craving a heat-wave, wearing flip flops and cute summer dresses, and eating ice cream and chilled watermelon. But instead, we rarely hit 30°C (86°F), the mornings are chilly, and we just had plenty of rainfall during the night.

So it’s not surprising, we’ve been making hot curry bowls in the bulk and will be sharing even more curry recipes in the upcoming weeks, but today, we share this Easy Vegan Tofu Curry Ramen.

As the title says, this is a mix between a curry and a ramen soup. It’s based on a coconut curry sauce, as per usual, with the addition of summer vegetables like peppers and zucchini.

To make the curry base we just used a dry curry spice mix that is shelf-stable and perfect to keep in the pantry. But you can also use a store-bought curry paste, or – make your own curry paste. 

Then, you thin it out a bit with vegetable broth to get more of a soup consistency. And then, you add in cooked ramen noodles instead of rice.

We chose tofu as the protein that we lightly fried and topped the curry ramen with it. 

So easy, so tasty, pure comfort. The perfect dish to have on a rainy day.
