This Mushroom Tofu Ramen is an easy, cozy, meatless meal that is packed with protein and nutrients, it’s made with a rich mushroom broth and crispy tofu. 




1 16oz block extra firm tofu

2 tbsp olive oil




4 cups Miso Ginger Broth*


4 cups Vegetable Broth + 1 tbsp minced ginger

2 cloves garlic, crushed

8oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced

1 1oz package dried Shitake mushrooms

2 cups water

1 package Ramen Noodles, flavor packet discarded

1/4 cup green onion

2 Japanese Marinated Soft Boiled Eggs (optional)

Black sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)



Press the tofu to release any excess water

Slice tofu into 1 -inch cubes

In a medium sized bowl, toss the tofu cubes in olive oil and season with salt and pepper

Turn Ninja Foodie on “Air Crisp” function, preheat for 5 minutes at 400°F

Spray the crisper basket with non-stick spray

Place tofu in the basket, “crisp” for 15 minutes, tossing the tofu every 5 minutes so it crisps evenly

When tofu is done, remove the basket and set it aside


Switch the Ninja Foodie to the “Pressure” function

Pour the miso ginger broth into the pot (or pour in the vegetable broth and mix in the ginger)

Add the garlic and mushrooms

Seal the pot with the pressure cook lid, make sure the pressure valve is set to “seal”

Cook for 10 minutes at high pressure

You may use quick or slow natural release to release the pressure

When it is safe to do so, open the lid

Add 2 cups of water

Switch to the “sear/sauté” function, liquid will quickly come to a boil

Add the Ramen Noodles, cook for 3 minutes

Carefully remove the pot from the Ninja Foodie

Divide the broth and noodles into 2 large soup bowls

Top each with a generous amount of tofu, green onions, 1 halved Japanese Marinated Soft Boiled Egg (optional) and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds (optional)

Enjoy immediately

Mushroom Tofu Ramen may also be made with an air fryer (for the tofu) and a pressure cooker (for the broth), the Ninja Foodie is not necessary. And if you do not have an air fryer you can bake the tofu in the oven (400°F for 30-35 minutes, flipping once half way through).
