Ingredients

2-3 cups miso ginger broth from Trader Joe’s
OR
2-3 cups of vegetable broth cooked with 1 tbsp of miso and 1 tbsp ginger
1 tsp of sesame oil
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/4 block of extra firm tofu, cubed
1/2 onion in slices
1 head of bok choy
Green onion and sesame seeds to garnish

Method

  1. Add sesame oil to pot. Add tofu, carrots and onions into pot. Add in 1/4 cup of miso ginger broth. Cook for 3-4 minutes until liquid is gone.
  2. Once it is gone add in the rest of the broth and bok choy. I cut the bok choy in half for the picture but you can also just cut it up and it will be easier to eat. Cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  3. Place into your bowl. Top with sesame seeds and green onion.

Serves 1
* feel free to add noodles to this as well.

Baked Gnocchi

Ingredients

1 package of gnocchi (can be found in dry pasta section)
2-3 cups of tomato sauce
1 tbsp vegan cream cheese
1 cup vegan mozzarella (I used Follow Your Heart Gourmet Shreds)
Basil

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 475F.
  2. Cook gnocchi in salted water for about 3 minutes. You can find vegan gnocchi in most food stores. Do not buy it from the refrigerated section that will contain egg. You can also use cauliflower gnocchi if you like.
  3. Once gnocchi rise to the top they are done. Strain and place in an oven safe pan with tomato sauce. I used store bought to make everything quicker.
  4. Add vegan cream cheese to the pasta sauce to make it creamier. Mix around until melted.
  5. Then add vegan mozzarella on top and bake for 5-7 minutes. You can also broil if you like.
  6. Top with fresh basil and enjoy!

Serves 2-3
