Easy creamy Vegan Ramen Noodles recipe with the ultimate miso coconut milk broth, air fried tofu cubes, wild mushrooms and a hit of lime. Finish with some fresh herbs or greens, a sprinkling of black sesame seeds or chili pepper for an extra spicy kick. 

The best creamy vegan ramen noodles! 


A noodle soup dish of Chinese origin that is now one of the most popular dishes in Japan and also my kitchen.

Because nothing beats slurping homemade ramen noodles out of a big bowl of steamy creamy broth while wrapped up in your favorite cozy blanket. True story you guys!

I started with a base of aromatics, the usual suspects as follows: onion, garlic and ginger, then kicked it up a notch with my homemade harissa and a dash of turmeric.

The Mushrooms:

  • You can sautee some sliced wild mushrooms together with your aromatics, or just add them to the broth with the noodles. 
  • Shiitake mushrooms with their umami flavor work perfectly here and are easy to find all year long. I had a few chanterelles leftover in the fridge so I had to make good use of those beauties instead, also you can never go wrong with a mix of oyster mushrooms. 

Choosing the Vegan Ramen Noodles:

  • Ideally we’d always have fresh organic noodles available on a Tuesday right? The reality is that most often than not I’m opening up a package of dried ramen I stocked up on while on sale. The brown rice millet variety you can find at Costco is actually great, the secret is to not overcook them. 
  • Occasionally I’ll come across an organic spelt ramen variety at Home Goods out of all places that are imported from Germany. Ironically they are the best dried ramen noodles I’ve ever had, go figure! All that being said, soba and zucchini noodles would work just fine here too. I say make use of what you have, right ?!

How to  Make Homemade Creamy Miso Ramen Broth:

  1. Miso Baby – You simply can’t have a great bowl of ramen noodles without an amazing broth. This umami flavored, lusciously creamy miso and coconut based broth from scratch delivers in flavor like a boss. It’s super quick and easy to whip up by just whisking together a few simple ingredients. Remember this Miso Noodle Soup? Divine!
  2. Coconut Milk – Make sure to use the full fat canned variety, the unsweetened kind without any extra ingredients. The label should read just plain coconut milk or coconut + water. That’s how you get the magic of that luscious creaminess.

The Tofu:

I air fried firm tofu cubes tossed in tapioca flour, however you can just add plain pressed tofu straight into the broth and it will absorb all those wonderful flavors. Or you can go with your favorite store bought marinated tofu slices like teriyaki or sriracha…whatever rocks your taste buds. 

The Ramen Seasonings:

Throw out those super salty packets and just follow the recipe for a more delicious and healthier way to season your tofu bowls.

Make Ahead Easy Ramen:

Everything can be made ahead including the noodles! The secret lies in  storing them separately in glass containers in the fridge until ready to serve. The veggie miso broth can even be frozen up to three months on its own.

Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:25 minutes
Total Time:35 minutes



Toppings Suggestions:

  • Scallions, Bok Choy or Spinach, Black Sesame Seeds, Red Chili Pepper, Toasted Seaweed / Nori, Steamed Broccoli, Shredded Cabbage, Sliced Sietan etc.


Air-Fry the Tofu (Optional)

  • In a small bowl mix together the tapioca with paprika and sea salt. Cut the pressed tofu into small cubes and toss them to coat in the tapioca mix.
    Add them to the basket of an air-fryer (or parchment lined baking sheet) and air fry at 400”F for 12 minutes until golden, flipping them half way or shaking the basket/ tray a couple of times. Set aside until needed.

Make the Miso Broth:

  • In a small bowl whisk together the hot veggie stock with the ginger, miso and tamari (+ dulse flakes if using). Set aside until needed.

Prepare the Creamy Ramen Broth:

  • Preheat a medium soup pot over low flame and saute the onion in a drizzle of oil until translucent. (Use water for WFPB + Plantricious compliance).
  • Stir in the turmeric and the harissa and cook a few more minutes and stir in the garlic. Saute for about 20 seconds until fragrant. Add the mushrooms and cook a few more minutes until wilted.
  • Add the coconut milk and bring to a gentle simmer then stir in the miso veggie broth. Taste and adjust seasonings with more tamari or a pinch of sea salt. Add the tofu and remove from heat. Allow it to absorb the flavors from the broth while you make the noodles.

Cook the Noodles:

  • Meanwhile bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the ramen noodles until al dente. To be on the safe side only boil them until they start to separate from the others, just a little too long and they will be overcooked. Best to use a noodle you love and are familiar with here. 
  • Drain and rinse then add the noodles to the coconut broth. Serve hot garnished with fresh cilantro and lime wedges on the side.
    Optional: Add red chili peppers for heat.

  3. Hi Florentina. I made this for dinner tonight and it was very good. I will definitely make it again. It was fun using ingredients I don’t normally use. My one comment is the way the ingredients are laid out. It would make the recipe much easier to make if they were organized better because I found the way the recipe was laid out was confusing. Other than that, it was delightful! Thank you.

    1. Hi Betty, so happy you loved the recipe, I will go over and edit in a cleaner format, I appreciate your feedback ~ Florentina Xo’s

  4. Absolutely loved this! Will be on our family favourites list. I also added cannellini Beans and at the end added spinach. Didn’t need it but worked really well to add extra vege and double whammy of protein. AMAZING ❤️
