Tofu Curry Ramen Bowl

I’ve seen a few pictures in instagram of a curry noodle bowl and it’s been looking so tempting so I decided to make one for myself. I threw in whatever I thought would be good in this and it was so tasty. It brought some of my favorites together in one bowl; crispy tofu, ramen, and red curry. Yum! It came together really quickly and was great for a tired weeknight. I used a packet of instant ramen, just the noodles, for the ramen so it was really easy and I used my leftover veggies from my stir fry last night which made it simple. I only had to really cook the tofu which is as easy as dicing and baking. It’s full of flavor, texture, and something I’ll crave.
