Need a healthy vegan meal right now? Make this! I used Ramen noodles so that I could whip up this Asian-inspired meal in ten minutes. This savory umami flavor of the soy compliments this simple meal, and the citrus flavor of the clementines provides a sweet and tangy contrast to the bitter escarole. Though it doesn't need it, you can add garlic or any other fruit for a little more depth in this recipe.
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups clementines, peeled and sectioned
1 1/2 to 2 cups escarole
2 packages Ramen noodles (discard the spice packets)
3 cups water
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 to 2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. brown sugar
Dash of salt
Dash of black pepper (optional)
Total Cook Time: 10 minutes.
Instructions:1. Bring the water to a boil, and then add the noodles. Boil for 3 to 5 minutes, drain, and return to the burner.
2. Add the soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, and salt. Mix well while cooking on medium heat.
3. Stir in the escarole, clementines, and chickpeas. Continue cooking on medium heat for another 2 to 3 minutes or so. Add any other seasonings you want.
