Directions

Cook the noodles as indicated on the ramen package, but replace water with the two cups of vegetable broth and add soy sauce, green onions and red chili pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste.
While the noodles are cooking, heat sesame oil in a small pan and sauté the cubes of tofu with a pinch of salt. Once a bit crispy, turn off the heat and set aside.
Once the noodles are done, serve in a bowl with the tofu and boiled egg, sliced in whatever way you wish, on top.
