Miso Ramen with Lime
bok choy / cauliflower / edamame

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min

Saute vegetables in miso-lime butter to develop deep umami flavors in this 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.

Make

  1. 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.

Delicious and super healthy and low calorie! I could eat this very regularly. I’d just add more bok choy and more broth next time.

Really yummy. Loved the miso compound butter. Would marinate salmon in it overnight before grilling.

Definitely will make this compound butter again. Really makes this meal. I was pleasantly surprised by the baby bok choy. I made the meal for three people but did four servings expecting that I'd have leftovers. There was some steak left and quite a bit of rice, but almost no butter and the bok choy was GONE. Pan scraped clean. I noted that we all put the butter on literally every part of the meal though!

Used an inside strip steak and had to cook less time than called for, maybe 8 minutes total. Also used regular bok choy as my store no longer carries baby.
