Although ramen may traditionally be made using a bone broth, I’ve discovered it’s also possible to make an equally flavour-packed vegan version! This Vegan Soy Milk Ramen has as much umami flavour as its meaty counterpart, but it’s much lighter and I personally find it much easier to digest.

This vegan broth is flavoured with nutty sesame, sweet miso, meaty shiitake mushrooms (bonus points if you can add one or two dried shiitake mushroom too!), salty soy sauce (or tamari) and creamy soy milk.

Soy milk in a noodle soup may seem odd, but its delicate flavour actually really balances out the broth – just make sure to use unsweetened soy milk! If you’re not into soy milk, it can be substituted with unsweetened almond or oat milk. 

You can also add some dried kombu seaweed to the broth too, if you can get hold of it.

Ramen noodles can be bought in most supermarkets, but if you can’t find them there, try local health stores, Asian supermarkets or online!

Gluten-free ramen noodles shouldn’t be too hard to find either – I especially like the brown rice ones. I’ve also seen lots of konnyaku (shirataki) noodles popping up in supermarkets recently.

Other gluten-free noodle options include: soba (buckwheat) noodles, rice noodles, or spiralised vegetables.

I decided to top this Vegan Soy Milk Ramen with some fried tofu, pea shoots and kimchi, but you can use whatever you fancy.
