vegan miso ramen

I’ve got it! An authentic Japanese miso ramen broth made 100% plant-based! It wasn’t difficult at all.
Here are what I used* in the first attempt:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • a dash of blackPepper
  • 3~4 cloves garlic – sliced.  
  • 1~2 tablespoon ginger chopped (or grated)
  • 3-4 shiitake mushrooms – sliced
  • 1/4 Onion – sliced 
  • 2 leaves of cabbage – sliced
  • 3 cups filtered water 
  • 3 teaspoons kelp or shiitake powder stock
  • 2 tablespoons of miso
  • 1 cup of mungBeanSprouts 
  • a few baby bokChoy 
  • 1 heaping teaspoon nutritionalYeast
  • whitePepper to taste
  1. In a medium sauce pan, add turmeric, blackPepper, & oliveOil while the pan is warming
  2. Add garlic, ginger, shiitake, onions, & cabbage; stirFry for a minute
  3. Add water, bring to boil, then simmer
  4. Add soup stock
  5. In a separate saucepan, boil water for the noodles, but before cooking the noodles, blanch kale and mungBeanSprouts, and set them aside.
  6. Add miso to the simmering broth 
  7. Noodles usually cook in a few minutes, best if you get them out al dente, using chopsticks & small handheld strainer
  8. Serve in the Asian noodle soup bowl, whitePepper to taste, garnish with green onions if you like.
  9. Enjoy eating!

That was what I did back in May, which turned out fantastic! (if I may say so myself lol)

Here’s what I’ve done a few nights ago, using daikon, atsuÂgé (deepfried Tofu) & kale instead of onion & bokChoy, & no added oil to start.

  1. In a medium sauce pan, add water, daikon, garlic, ginger, shiitake, & atsuÂgé. Bring to boil, then simmer.
  2. Add soup stock, ground sesameSeeds, nutritionalYeast, and miso.
  3. As the broth is nearly ready, boil the noodles in another pot.
  4. Add mungBeanSprouts and kale to the broth a minute before it’s ready.
  5. WhitePepper to taste. Serve and enjoy eating!

I inadvertently simplified the first recipe.

Both very satisfying. Hope you try it. Thanks for checking then out!

Happy cooking & eating!
