What??? Grilled Vegan Ramen with Vegetable Stir fry

As I have mentioned in another Ramen recipe, people have been doing some odd things with the all time college favorite noodle.  After reading through some odd preparations, I decided I really had to try grilling it.  Mainly because I could not fathom how this would work or how it would taste.

What was interesting, was that it not only worked, but also tasted pretty good!  It is crunchy on the outside and soft and tender on the inner part of the ramen block.  Very interesting and intriguing texture!

The most important thing in this recipe is the marinade!  I went for a teriyaki marinade and soaked each side of the ramen block in a good amount of sauce for at least 10 minutes on each side.  You want to make sure the noodles are smothered in your marinade and literally just soaked.

Grilled Vegan Ramen with Vegetable Stir fry

1 head broccoli chopped into florets
1/2 c sliced mushrooms
1 tsp fresh ginger minced
1 clove garlic minced
1/4-1/3 c teriyaki marinade
chopped scallions (garnish)
1/2 tbsp sesame oil

Preheat grill.
Put each block of ramen in a shallow bowl, and pour marinade over.  After 10 minutes, flip and marinade for another 10 minutes. 
While ramen is marinating,  heat sesame oil in a wok, and add ginger, garlic, broccoli florets and mushrooms.  After cooking for about 5 minutes, stir in 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce.  Turn to low and start grilling the ramen.
Place ramen on grill and cook for 3-5 minutes, then flip and grill the other side for the same amount of time.  Transfer to plate, top with the veggies and pour any additional teriyaki sauce on top.
