Similar to my IP Lo Mein of recipe, this is a vegetarian recipe but can easily be served with leftover meat if desired.
This can also easily be a one pot meal if you sauté the veggies in the IP liner before and remove them before cooking the noodles. If you are short on time though, set the noodles to cook in the broth and sauté the veggies on the stovetop to mix in once the noodles are done.
Vegetarian Instant Pot Ramen:
If you want a one pot meal, start by sautéing the vegetables of your choice. Today I used the ones listed below. This is a great recipe to use up little bits of a variety of vegetables that need to be eaten.
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup chard or celery stems, chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
1 cup diced mushrooms
3 cloves of garlic, diced
4 cups chopped kale or chard
Sauté veggies in the liner of the IP and remove before adding noodles. Or sauté in a separate pan on the stovetop.
After the veggies have been removed if you sautés them in the IP liner, add….
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce or Bragg’s Aminos
8 cups of chicken or beef broth, or 8 homemade bullion cubes and 8 cups of water (the liquid should come a little less than halfway up the sides of the pot)
1 – 1 1/2 pounds thin spaghetti (I used regular spaghetti noodles the day I made this and took the pictures as I didn’t have think spaghetti on hand.)
Break the noodles in half alternating directions. The noodles don’t have to all be completely covered by the liquid but they should all be moistened. Do not stir or compress the uncooked noodles.
Lock the lid on the pot and seal the pressure valve. Cook on High Pressure, Warm setting OFF, for 3 minutes. Quick Release.
Immediately stir the noodles and add in the cooked veggies. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the past to absorb some more of the liquid.
Add meat if desired. We like to serve this with chicken strips on the side.
