Savory, creamy, umami packed mushroom miso ramen noodle soup that happens to be vegan.
This recipe is so simple and is made in just one pot!
We all know I love ramen soup and mushrooms!
I call recipes ‘accidentally vegan’ because I don’t always develop recipes with the sole focus of them being plant-based.
My main focus is to create fun, easy, flavorful and vegetable forward dishes.
This mushroom miso ramen is no exception!
It’s packed with mushroom flavor and green vegetables.
I wanted a creamy aspect which is why I added full-fat coconut milk.
Miso paste not only adds a lot of flavor but it also has nutritional benefits.
Miso is rich in essential minerals and a good source of various B vitamins, vitamins E, K and folic acid.
As a fermented food, miso provides the gut with beneficial bacteria that help us to stay healthy.
For this recipe, I prefer a mellow white miso.
Adding green vegetables is a no brainer for me. It adds color and vitamins to the dish!
Baby bok choy is traditional for ramen soup.
It’s a delicate and delicious vegetable that is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C , vitamin K, and has dietary fiber!
When mushrooms are in season, I like to buy all kinds of varieties. Use what you like or is available to you. The more “wild” the mushroom, the more flavor it will have.
To truly enhance the mushroom flavor, I am adding a no salt added mushroom powder.
Wipe any dirt from the mushrooms and cut off the dry ends. For any larger mushrooms, cut into smaller chunks.
Slice the onion into thin half moon slices and also peel and thinly slice the garlic.
Wash and dry the bok choy. This ingredient is cooked separately by either steaming or lightly sautéing it in a skillet with just a little bit of oil.
Wash and thinly slice the green onion.
Get the rest of your ingredients ready as well.
Get a Large Soup Pot
Heat a large soup pot on high heat. Once the pot is hot add the oil.
To the hot oil, add the sliced onion, garlic and mushroom.
Sauté for 4-5 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
Next, season with mushroom powder and salt. Stir to coat the vegetables in the seasoning.
Now add the vegetable stock cube and water and bring it up to a simmer.
Stir to dissolve the vegetable stock cube then add the coconut milk and miso.
Stir to dissolve the miso paste then increase the heat to high.
