Ingredients and Substitute Ideas:

  • Rice noodles: These noodles cook quickly and offer a delightful texture. They are also gluten-free. If you need a substitute, choose any instant noodles that can cook in boiling hot water within 5-7 minutes.

  • Bouillon or Miso Paste: For a rich flavor base, I typically use Better than Bouillon vegetable paste or a good vegan miso paste. You can also opt for bouillon powder or your favorite soup base.

  • Vegetables: Feel free to use your preferred vegetables. I highly recommend shiitake mushrooms, shredded cabbage, bean sprouts, corn kernels, and bell peppers.

  • Protein: I personally love adding diced tofu cubes marinated in soy sauce, sriracha, and toasted sesame oil. However, you can also use edamame beans, seitan, vegan chicken, or any protein of your choice!
