Thank you for the recipe! I had to add more seasoning (sambal & ketjap) but other than that it was wonderful! I had been looking for vegetarian ramen recipes and I this really hit the spot! The only other thing I did different was to fry the tofu so it was like croutons. It made the noodles even more exciting! 4 stars... yum yum!
