This almost-instant vegan ramen might be my favorite recipe I’ve ever shared! It has a rich savory miso sesame flavor soup base and takes less than 5 minutes to make. I don’t want to over-hype this…but if you make one thing on my site I hope it’s this one!
The soup base is quick and easy and comes together in about 1 minute, just add hot water. This recipe is scalable to how many people you are serving because it’s made per serving in individual soup bowls. So if I’m making enough for two people, I will get our soup bowls out and make each portion right in the bottom. It’s one of my favorite go-to recipes for guests for this reason and because it’s super delicious.
There are lots of ways to modify this to your needs. If you are gluten-free you can use GF ramen noodles, in my video, above, I mention my favorite gluten-free ramen noodles. If you are soy-free then you can use chickpea miso, there are a few brands available nowadays. Chickpea miso is very similar in taste and color to white miso which works well.
Similarly, you can top this ramen with all kinds of goodies!! Here I’ve used scallions, nanami togarashi (Japanese spice blend), and dried nori strips. Fried tofu, bean sprouts, roasted corn, toasted sesame seeds, or greens would also be amazing on this ramen as well. What are your favorite vegan ramen toppings?
Vegan Miso Sesame Ramen
- 1 tbsp white miso
- 1/2 tsp Gochugaru (Korean red chili flakes)
- 1 tbsp tahini
- 1 cube vegan instant ramen
- 1 cup boiling water
Ramen and Toppings
- 1 ramen noodle block
- toppings: scallions, nori, etc.
For the Soup
- In the bottom of the ramen bowl add the miso, chili flakes, and tahini. Mix them to form a paste for the soup base.
- Add the intant miso cube on top of the soup base paste and then pour over 1 cup of boiling water. Stir till completely disolved and incorporated.
For the Noodles
- In a pot on the stove, bring 1 liter of water to a boil. Add your ramen noodles cooking to the package instructions. Fresh ramen will take 2 minutes to cook.
- Drain the noodles and then quickly transfer to your ramen bowl placing them gently in the soup.
- Once your ramen and soup are ready, add your toppings of choice. Here I have used nanami togarashi which is a Japanese spice blend, sliced scallions, and nori pieces.
- Serve while hot and enjoy!
