Teriyaki Shiitake Shoyu Ramen

40 min



Ramen is a well-known and loved noodle dish from Japan. Chewy noodles are served in a deliciously savoury broth with warm and cold toppings. Variations of ramen are found throughout Japan, differentiated by the broth flavouring bases, like soy sauce, miso, or vegetable stock. This vegan version is inspired by the shōyu (醤油) or soy sauce-based ramen. Teriyaki glazed shiitake mushrooms and grilled baby corn are the perfect toppings for this slurp-able soup.

Diti - April 6, 2024, 10:16 a.m.

One of the best ramens I’ve had other than the ones in Japan 😍

PUL Team - April 8, 2024, 3:55 a.m.

What a huge compliment, Diti! Thank you 😊

Mariam - March 24, 2024, 7:58 a.m.

This was super tasty even without the teriyaki mushrooms

Basia - Feb. 22, 2024, 9:05 a.m.

This was absolutely amazing, even though I skipped the corn and teriyaki mushrooms. It was my first time trying ramen and I loved it! Thank you guys for for the recipe 🍜💜

PUL Team - Feb. 23, 2024, 12:55 a.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear it was enjoyed, Basia! Ramen is our favourite 🤩

Lotte - Feb. 17, 2024, 8:47 a.m.

I was wondering if the broth (not the toppings) can be stored in the freezer as well. Would like to make a batch to use on busy days!

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 3:38 a.m.

Hey there, Lotte, yes we imagine you can store in the freezer for up to 2 months. We'd recommend freezing it in 1 cup (240 mL) portions, so it's easier to use in future recipes 😊

Inu - Feb. 4, 2024, 6:45 p.m.

Very tasty. I will certainly make this again and again

Daniel - Jan. 28, 2024, 7:02 p.m.


Martunia - Jan. 26, 2024, 9:26 p.m.

Yummy! I only wish I could have used baby bok choi (I only had access to regular-sized ones, I used two), the big leaves are not easy to chew. I also skipped the kombu and used button mushrooms instead of shitake, as I'm ran out of them.

Swati Vetri Kumar - Dec. 24, 2023, 8:30 a.m.

Really really loved it.
Made it when I was feeling a little under the weather and what comforting food it is!

celine - Dec. 22, 2023, 11:41 p.m.

Really delicious 🫶

Helena Dockx - Nov. 12, 2023, 12:10 p.m.

Delicious! & easy to swap things out with the alternatives given, I love this! 😍

Danielle D - Nov. 8, 2023, 3:45 p.m.

Honestly the most amazing ramen I have ever made. This is being added to my rotation for sure!

Juliana B Torres - Nov. 5, 2023, 10:26 p.m.

I love this recipe! I've done it twice now and will keep on doing it. It's the first time that I try making ramen and i have to say I made a great choice with this recipe. Fully recommend!!

One comment is that the descriptions on step 1 and 2 are not fully matching the ingredients. I went back to the recipe on the PUL website to match them correctly

PUL Team - Nov. 6, 2023, 8:31 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the ramen, Julian, and thanks so much about the heads-up about the instructions, they've now been updated the match the photos and ingredients correctly. Thanks so much for helping us improve what we do! ❤️

Tara Millington - Oct. 30, 2023, 1:26 a.m.

This recipe is confusing. Do you sauté the mushrooms then add water and boil then sauté again and add teriyaki?

PUL Team - Oct. 30, 2023, 5:43 a.m.

Hey Tara, apologies for the confusion! This recipe has mushrooms in two parts - the broth and the teriyaki mushroom topping. To make the broth, we start by cooking the mushrooms in a pan and then add water and boil (see 5:45 in the video). As for the teriyaki mushrooms, we cook these separately in a pan and mix in teriyaki sauce (see 6:34 in the video). In case you're in the app, pressing the red "Make" button on the bottom of the recipe tab will open a step-by-step cook-along mode with pictures and a list of ingredients for each step to help 🤗

Elise - Oct. 13, 2023, 7:10 a.m.

So delicious! I made it for my partner when he wasn’t feeling well and now it’s all he wants to eat!

Hanna - July 25, 2023, 9:26 a.m.

I made with a friend and we both LOVED, so tasty and full of flavour!

Meta B - July 12, 2023, 2:53 p.m.

So delicious 😋🤩

Ema - June 14, 2023, 12:05 p.m.

I made many vegan ramen soup recipes but this is my favourite so far. I forgot to buy smoked tofu but found a simple recipe to make my own, and that with those teriyaki mushrooms and baby corn were a very tasty combination!

PUL Team - June 14, 2023, 10:48 p.m.

Hey there, Ema, so happy the recipe was enjoyed! 😊

Samantha - June 5, 2023, 11:41 p.m.

Well I shall be making this again...and again and again....

Gina - April 6, 2023, 9:38 p.m.

Hi! I'm about to try this recipe tomorrow. I'm gathering all the ingredients :D Just a question: Could I use dehydrated nori seaweed instead of Kombu?
Thank you! I really like your recipes. They are great!

PUL Team - April 7, 2023, 9:30 p.m.

Hey Gina, the kombu is optional for added umami flavour so you can omit it. You add dehydrated nori seaweed instead too though - we enjoy dried seaweed as a topping 😃

Lin - March 6, 2023, 4:07 a.m.

This is a great recipe! I love the simple yet flavorful broth. I’ll be making this every winter!

Tilly - Feb. 26, 2023, 7:19 p.m.

I've cooked this recipe twice now, and it is so incredibly delicious!

Elise - Feb. 14, 2023, 12:58 a.m.

This is such a delicious, decadent recipe for me! If I ever want to treat myself whilst really unwinding and enjoying the cooking process, this is a dish I will now turn to. Thank you!

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2023, 7:54 a.m.

Awe so happy to hear, Elise, thank you 🙂

Rachael - Feb. 12, 2023, 9:14 a.m.

Quick, tasty recipe!

Puja - Feb. 6, 2023, 11:39 p.m.

Woww it's full of flavor and amazing recipe for vegan ramen. I cooked both recipes but this one is really next level . I absolutely love the broth..! Thanks for such amazing recipe's PUL.

PUL Team - Feb. 8, 2023, 1:38 a.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share, Puja, it means so much 😃

Christa - Dec. 1, 2022, 3:26 p.m.

Made this recipe for the whole street (22 persons), everyone loved it!

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2022, 4:20 p.m.

Wow so kind of you to make it for everyone, Christa! So happy to hear 😊

Santa - Nov. 22, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

This is a spot on recipe! Loved it.

Maggie - Nov. 20, 2022, 11:35 p.m.

This was FANTASTIC. The broth had an amazing depth, even without the kombu (because I couldn’t find any). I would have made twice the amount of broth had I known it was this delicious!

PUL Team - Nov. 21, 2022, 4:12 a.m.

Awe we're so thrilled it was enjoyed, Maggie, thank you :D

Kyla - Nov. 14, 2022, 4:43 p.m.

Delicious!! I personally found the recipe to be a bit on the salty side, but I also don’t eat a lot of salt so I could just be more heightened to even smaller amounts of salt. But with that said, the broth is so flavourful and warming! I love the crispy mushrooms and tofu added in. I also like to add green cabbage!

PUL Team - Nov. 15, 2022, 2:27 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share, Kyla! Ramen does tend to be saltier so using reduced-sodium sauces is one approach to help. So glad it was still enjoyed 😊

Michal - Nov. 13, 2022, 5:53 p.m.

Amazing recipe! One of the best ramen I have eaten. Thank you PUL for all your hard work ❤️

I wanted to add a suggestion, it would be nice to have an option to save my favorite recipes on the website, so I can come to them later again 🙂 and maybe an option to save recipes to try later...

PUL Team - Nov. 14, 2022, 2:07 a.m.

Such a big compliment, Michal, thank you! We'll note down the idea as well. Hopefully, we can share a project soon which has similar features 🤗

Cat Riopelle - Nov. 1, 2022, 11:01 p.m.

Since your ramen wars video, have made both but somehow keep going to this one, and now seems a weekly part of my menu. It is so comforting, so tasty and totally versatile with seaweeds and veggies. Absolutely love it.
Thank you.

PUL Team - Nov. 2, 2022, 4:45 a.m.

So glad the ramen is being enjoyed! Thank you, Cat Riopelle 🙂

Jermaine - Oct. 31, 2022, 8:11 p.m.

Soo good! Really hit the spot.

Astrid - Oct. 16, 2022, 9:50 p.m.

Made this ramen today and me and my husband absolutely loved it. Especially the broth was out of this world :)
Next on our list is the Spicy Miso Sesame Ramen!!

Thank you PUL team <3

PUL Team - Oct. 17, 2022, 12:19 a.m.

Aw it means so much, Astrid! We hope you love the Spicy Miso Sesame Ramen 😃

Jill - Oct. 10, 2022, 9:02 p.m.

This was so delicious. That broth was seriously unreal. My husband (who only eats plant-based at home) actually requested we make it for dinner again this week because he loved it so much last week! Love the addition of the bok choy, smoked tofu and the enoki mushrooms - I think these were my favourite parts of the ramen. We will be experimenting with adding sugar snap peas this week instead of the baby corn but I anticipate it will still taste delicious!

PUL Team - Oct. 11, 2022, 3:59 a.m.

Oh we're so happy to hear, Jill, and love the idea to use sugar snap peas! Enjoy 🤗

Caitlen - Oct. 4, 2022, 12:01 p.m.

Absolutely delicious!! The broth and the teriyaki mushrooms were just divine. It was my first time making ramen and actually made it for everyone when we had friends staying the night - everyone loved it! We live close to the Dutch border and often just go for a drive to Amsterdam to have good ramen, but I have to say, we won't have to drive as much as this recipe is now a household staple :) Will have to try the miso ramen next!

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2022, 5 p.m.

Aw thank you for the glowing review, Caitlen, it means so much! 😃

Charlotte - Sept. 20, 2022, 9:24 p.m.

This was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe Robin!! 🙌🏻🌿 My favourite parts were the teriyaki shiitake, baby corn and smoked tofu.❤️ I swapped the enoki mushrooms for shredded oyster mushrooms, bean paste for sambal and ramen noodles for brown rice noodles so it was GF. Will definitely be making again! 😍🍜

PUL Team - Sept. 21, 2022, 11:33 p.m.

We're beyond thrilled to hear, Charlotte, and love the modifications! Thank you 😃

Gabriela - Sept. 19, 2022, 11:11 a.m.

Such an amazing recipe, I will be cooking this often now, loved it! And my favorite part was the teriyaki shiitake - such a unique slightly caramel-like flavor!

PUL Team - Sept. 19, 2022, 6:33 p.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, Gabriela, thank you!

Shirley - Sept. 18, 2022, 5:56 p.m.

So tasty!! My husband and I devoured it - thanks for the recipe!

PUL Team - Sept. 19, 2022, 4:16 a.m.

Woop woop! Thank you, Shirley 😃

Marlin - Sept. 14, 2022, 2:33 p.m.

Hats off to you, Robin, this ramen was SOO GOOD!!

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

Thank you, Marlin, it means so much!

Caitlen - Sept. 13, 2022, 9:48 p.m.

Hi PUL Team! I'm really looking forward to making this, but unfortunately don't have access to enoki mushrooms. :( Any suggestions on what could be a good substitute?

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2022, 5:35 p.m.

Hey Caitlen! You can substitute the enoki mushrooms for any other mushrooms. You could also omit enoki mushrooms and add more noodles and shiitake mushrooms if desired. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try 😃

Twee - Sept. 12, 2022, 6:42 p.m.

I tried Robin's recipe, although I don't have Donbanjiang paste, I sub for (mild) Ssamjang paste instead. Also I sub fresh shiitake mushrooms for dried shiitake mushrooms (of course less in term of weight) + mushroom bouillon cube. It was so good and satisfying. I can't handle spiciness but the warmth from the ginger and probably some spiciness from the Ssamjang paste was enough for me.
I'm so glad I got enough bokchoy and enoki mushrooms to make the dish again tomorrow!

PUL Team - Sept. 14, 2022, 6:27 p.m.

Mmm sounds incredible, Twee, thanks a bunch for taking the time to share the modifications!

Loepi - Sept. 9, 2022, 11:05 p.m.

Loved it! Small note, the bouillon is missing in the ingrediënts list!

PUL Team - Sept. 10, 2022, 4:25 p.m.

Hey Loepi, amazing catch - thank you! The recipe has been updated 😃

JC - Sept. 8, 2022, 2:30 p.m.

I've officially tried both ramens, and while they were both delicious I must say I preferred this one! Slurpilicious! Well done Robin! 🙌

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2022, 11:03 p.m.

Ooo thank you for taking the time to try both and let us know, JC, it means so much 😃

Oliva - Sept. 8, 2022, 9:09 a.m.

That was sooooooo delicious! Have to try your sisters version next but this one sure is a hard one to beat :)
Hi from Germany <3

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2022, 11 p.m.

Sending our warmest hello to Germany 👋 We're so thrilled it was enjoyed, Oliva!

Sria - Sept. 7, 2022, 7:39 p.m.

Amaaazing!! ✨ The whole fam loved it!

Marti - Sept. 6, 2022, 11:09 a.m.

Can I make this if I don't have the kombu?

PUL Team - Sept. 7, 2022, 4:45 p.m.

Hey Marti! Yes, you can 🙂The kombu is optional for added umami flavour.

Marijke - Sept. 6, 2022, 9:30 a.m.

Those teriyaki mushrooms are ah-mazing. 10/10 recommend this ramen soooo good!

PUL Team - Sept. 7, 2022, 8:02 a.m.

Woohoo! Thank you, Marijke 😃

John - Sept. 5, 2022, 3:59 p.m.

Robin, this recipe was amazing! Delicious broth, perfect saltiness. Not too much and not too little. Best homemade ramen I've made (and I've made a lot).

PUL Team - Sept. 7, 2022, 3:52 a.m.

Such a big compliment, John, thanks a bunch!
