Miso Ramen with Limeand bok choy / cauliflower / edamame
Saute vegetables in miso-lime butter to develop deep umami flavors in the ramen that tastes simmered for hours (even though it comes together in a matter of minutes!).
Smarts: If you'd like to have leftovers, cook the noodles separately and add them to the soup just before serving so they don't turn soggy.
- Garlic - 3 cloves, sliced
- Cauliflower - 1 lb, chopped
- Green onions - 1 stalk, chopped finely
- Butter - 2 Tbsp
- Miso, any type - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Lime zest - 1/2 tsp
- Bok choy, baby - 3/4 lb, chopped (sub regular bok choy or zucchini)
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Soy sauce, low-sodium - 2 to 4 tsp
- Stock, any type - 4 cups
- Noodles, dried ramen - 8 oz (sub soba or udon)
- Edamame, shelled - 1 cup
- Garlic / Cauliflower - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Make miso-lime butter - Chop green onions. Soften butter in microwave for ~10 seconds. Mash in miso, lime zest, and green onions. If you like spice, add in a few drops of your favorite hot sauce. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Bok choy - Halve bok choy lengthwise and then rinse thoroughly in cold water in case any dirt got trapped in the stems. Drain and then chop. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
- Heat a saucepan or wok over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then bok choy to heated oil. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender.
- Add miso-lime butter and then cauliflower and garlic. Saute until garlic is fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add soy sauce and stock and bring to a simmer. Simmer until cauliflower is tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Add noodles and edamame and cook just until noodles are tender, 3 to 6 minutes (depending on thickness).
- Remove from heat. Season with some salt, pepper, and lime juice if desired. Enjoy!

Miso lime butter is the stuff of dreams. i want to put it on everything. Amazing!
Loved it. I made too many chopped green onions and not enough bok choy, which was my own fault. My kids loved it too!
Easy and delicious!
Plenty of flavor and we enjoyed it. There was too much of the butter. I mean, the butter tasted great, but it felt too decadent. I'd halve that next time.
Wonderful!! A favorite without a doubt!! Love the miso lime butter and the bok choy with it!!!
I had a heck of a time finding flank steak, but really liked this dish. Will try making it again with the appropriate cut of meat. Very tasty; I loved the bok choy side.
