Shōyu Ramen Broth

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 cup mushrooms, slice thick
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • pinch dried ginger
  • 2 cups vegetable broth

Easy Vegan Ramen

  • 1 package vegan ramen noodles
  • 1/2 package extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/4" thick squares
  • 1/2 cup sliced Little Potatoes (Baby Boomers)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach, julienned
  • 1 carrot, in peelings
  • 2 green onions, thin sliced
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts


  1. Pan-fry extra-firm tofu in sesame or canola oil until crispy on both sides. Set aside.

Ramen Broth

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat sesame + canola oil over medium heat. Add sliced onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1-2 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue cooking until mushrooms are tender. Add ginger, soy sauce, and sriracha, cook, stirring frequently for 1 minute. Slowly add 2 cups vegetable broth. Simmer for 10 minutes, while you prep the ramen toppings.
  2. Strain the broth and measure. Add water to correct volume to 600 ml, taste, and adjust with water to suit your preference. Bring broth back to a boil and add sliced potatoes. Simmer for 3 minutes. Add noodles (cooking according to package directions) at the appropriate time to ensure potatoes and noodles are cooked at the same time.


  1. Divide noodles and broth between 2 bowls. Top with crispy tofu, carrot ribbons, bean sprouts, thin-sliced mushrooms, spinach, and green onion. Serve with sesame seeds, soy sauce, and sriracha.


I nabbed these vegan ramen noodles from a packaged ramen - 1 package works perfectly. Choose whichever noodles you think will work best. Rice noodles, udon, soba, or flour stick noodles are all suitable options.
