Vegan Ramen, one of my all-time favourite dishes that screams of health and deliciousness. Below is a simple recipe that’s just delicious and simply enough to make at home.


For Broth

  • 1 tablespoon of grape seed or olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped or 2.5 tablespoons of Garlic.
  • Big piece of ginger diced
  • 1 medium red or yellow onion
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce (you can add more to taste)
  • Pack of shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped – half for stock, other half for garnish
  • 1 tablespoons of miso paste

To Serve

  • Ramen noodles for 2, or noodles of choice
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • Tub of, extra-firm tofu, flash fried
  • 2 medium carrots, cooked, preferably sautéed in a bit of soy sauce
  • Other half of shitake mushrooms, cooked


  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add oil, garlic, ginger and red or yellow onion.
  • Sauté, stirring occasionally for 5-8 minutes
  • Add 1 cup of the vegetable stock, this helps to de-glaze the bottom of the pan.
  • Use a spoon to scrape up any bits that may have stuck to the bottom to enhance the flavour of the broth.
  • Add the rest of the vegetable broth, soy sauce and half the pack of mushrooms – stir.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium, then reduce heat to low and cover.
  • Simmer for at least 1 hour.
  • Add the miso paste
  • The longer it cooks, the more the flavour will deepen and develop.

When you’re 20 minutes from serving, prepare any desired toppings:

  • Tofu: Drain, allow to stand for 30 mins and then flash fry in a tablespoon of oil
  • Carrots: Roughly dice and fry until cooked, add soy sauce for extra taste
  • Shitake Mushrooms: Sautee in a tablespoon of oil until cooked, throw in soy sauce for extra flavour
  • Ramen Noodles Fill a large saucepan or pot with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add ramen noodles – about 4-5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Green onion: Sliced
  • Note: You can also add bok choi or other veg as desired
  • Strain broth and reserve onion and mushrooms for serving.
  • To serve, divide ramen noodles between two bowls
  • Top with strained broth
  • Add desired toppings
