Miso Ramen with Lime
and bok choy / cauliflower / edamame

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
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.


Miso Ramen with Lime:
  • 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


  1. Garlic / Cauliflower - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. 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)
