  • 1 Cup of Noodle packages
  • sesame oil
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves of garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp gochujang
  • a few dashes of fish sauce
  • handful frozen corn
  • handful spinach
  • handful mushrooms thinly sliced
  • high protein tofu
  • chicken stock


  • Furikake rice seasoning
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped green onion
  • sriracha


  • Put a large cast iron pot on medium heat and add enough sesame oil to barely cover the bottom of the pot.
  • Add shallot and let that soften for a few minutes or until translucent. Then add garlic, ginger, gochujang, and fish sauce. Mix together and let it all mingle. This is where you develop the flavor!
  • Let it caramelize together for 2-3 minutes, then add the tofu, corn, and mushrooms. Stir to combine and evenly coat the veggies and tofu in the sauce.
  • Cook for another 3-4 minutes, then add the Cup of Noodles.
  • Add enough chicken broth to barely cover the noodles and bring to a boil. Be sure to stir a few times as it comes to a boil.
  • After a few minutes, add the spinach so that it wilts.
  • Remove from heat, portion into big bowls and top with garnishes.
