The other night, we had a cocktail party in my apartment. To prepare, I decided to make something that any classy cocktail party should have: a cheese plate. “But you’re dairy free,” you might say, “how did you do that?” Well, remember my favorite vegan cheese recipe that I blogged about months ago? I made that creamy cashew cheese and coated it with pistachios and dried cranberries. I also made a vegan brie from this recipe from Peace Love Vegan. This is where our story really begins.
The finished cheese plate!
Ramen! Yum! I had a craving today, thinking about all the veggies sitting in my fridge and wondering what to do with them. Then it hit me. Ramen, it’s perfect! I walked into the Japanese market that I always pass but never go into, and found classy ramen. You know what I mean. Ramen without the spice packet (this variety is actually a dollar more expensive than the one with the packet). These are real noodles, made with wheat and water. C’est tout. Try and find it if you can. Otherwise, good old Top Ramen will work, but for goodness sakes, throw that packet away!
