Why You'll Love Creamy Vegan Ramen

  • It’s ready in 30 minutes. This creamy vegan ramen isn’t the same as authentic ramen with pork broth that takes 10 plus hours to cook — after all, it’s vegan. But to us, it’s a huge pro (not a con) that this one pot recipe is ready in just 30 minutes. You can literally fit this homemade ramen recipe into a work-from-home healthy lunch break!
  • The creamy miso peanut broth. The combination of miso paste and peanut butter is my go-to when it comes to homemade vegan ramen broth. It’s creamy, delicious, and flavorful. I used this same umami combination in my popular Healthy Miso Ramen with Chicken and Vegetarian Peanut Miso Ramen. It’s just that good.
  • It’s a healthy and nutritious plant-based meal. Whether you follow a strict vegan diet or are just incorporating more plant-based meals into your meal plan, it’s a great way to add some healthy recipes to your weekly dinner list. Vegan mushroom ramen noodle soup is a great choice for your health, the planet, and your wallet. Loaded with miso, ginger, shiitake mushrooms, and vegetables, this soup is healthy and packed with nutrients.

How to Make the Best Creamy Vegan Ramen

  1. Sauté aromatics. Heat oil in a 5.5 quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat until the oil is sizzling hot, about 1 minute. Add onion, ginger, and garlic and sauté until tender and fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in carrot and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add water. Slowly pour in hot water (or stock). Stir occasionally and bring it to a simmer, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add ingredients. Stir in miso paste and peanut butter and mix well until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and simmer over medium heat until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add noodles. Then, add ramen noodles into the broth and cook according to package instructions until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Make sure to stir the noodles with chopsticks or a fork to prevent them from sticking to each other.
  5. Season. Stir in green onions and season with black pepper, if desired. Turn off the heat and set the pot to the side.
  6. Assemble. Use a steel mesh strainer or a slotted spoon to transfer the ramen noodles into serving bowls. Use a soup ladle to slowly add the soup and mushrooms over the noodles. Top with a spoonful of corn, edamame, shredded carrots, and green onions.
  7. Serve. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and serve immediately.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • For more fragrant garlic: If you like your garlic to taste lively rather than subdued, wait to add it until after the carrots. Fresh garlic retains a somewhat spicy kick, so you’ll want to sauté it only slightly.
  • Make it gluten free: You can make this gluten-free by using gluten-free ramen noodles and soy sauce.
  • How to store: This creamy vegan ramen is best eaten fresh, but it does store surprisingly well. If storing for more than a few hours, it’s best to drain and store the noodles and broth separately so the noodles don’t become too soft.
  • How to reheat: Reheat on the stovetop over medium heat. If you stored your noodles separately, wait to add them until the broth is hot, then heat until warmed.
