Directions

Click:

  1. Layer your soup ingredients in a mason jar* or another heat-proof container. Noodles should go at the bottom, followed by the miso and bouillon cube, then tofu, green onion, and lastly the mushrooms and spinach to fill the container.
  2. Keep in the fridge until ready to eat.
  3. When ready to enjoy, carefully pour boiling water into your container, or transfer the contents into a bowl and pour the water on top to cover.
  4. Add a cover, let sit for about 3 - 5 minutes or until the noodles are al dente. Top with hot sauce (if using) and enjoy!

Notes

  • * Mason jars can get very hot, so be sure to handle them with care. If the glass jar is cold, add a small splash of hot water to the jar first and swirl around before adding the rest.
  • If you have extra time: pan fry the tofu in a tsp of coconut oil to crisp up the sides. Or sauté a clove of garlic with the green onion for 1-2 minutes, cool and add to the container.

Storage

  • Best if enjoyed right away after adding the boiling water.
  • The prepped soup can be stored in the fridge for up to two days, so long as no water has been added.

Awesome recipe! A big hit in our house. Thank you.


Shruti - July 23, 2021, 7:14 p.m.

Amazing, quick recipe - has become a staple in our house since we first tried it! I usually add some coconut milk to it to make it creamier - makes for the perfect pick-me-up warm liquid hug <3

Love the addition of coconut milk, Shruti, thank you for sharing 🌻

Miso soup is the best! It’s just the thing for a cold or when you have the flu and preparing it like this makes it a cinch to prepare!

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 3:15 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share the lovely review with us, Katherine 😊

I tried this one out, because Ramen is my absolute favorite meal, and this is such a good recipe. It can be made during the week, even when work is busy, because it doesn't cost too much time. You're the best Sadia!

Do you think you can more Ramen recipes in the future? I already tried out lot's of combinations (with peanut butter, Pak Choi, with soy milk etc.) but I would love to hear your thoughts on it :) I have the feeling, Asian recipes offers many options for vegans.

Best Wishes, Marc :)

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3:22 p.m.

Hey there, Marc! So thrilled that you're enjoying the recipe 😃 We'll note down a request for more ramen recipes 😊

I just wanted to tell you that I in no way consider myself plant based or vegan, just a girl trying to live a healthier life and leave the world a little better, but i have eaten this everyday for lunch this week ! it is amazing and so delish! I use forbidden rice noodles, soooo good. And thank you for introducing me to Samabal Oelek, where was this sauce of the gods my whole life! A huge hug and thank you from little 'ol Tri Cities, WA :) Have a nourished day!

This was so simple and fast to make - thank you very much for this recipe. I added some wakame, which also tasted wonderful.
Plus, I love your new design, super fun to scroll through the page and recipes! :-)
Kind regards from Austria!

Lovely idea to add some wakame, Mariella, and thank you! Sending hugs to Austria 🥰

This was so easy and delicious! Definitely something I will make regularly :))

The soup looks beautiful and yummy! Love the new site, great job!
A quick question: Is the sodium/serving really 2670 mg? :O Feels like an error... Just wanted to give a heads up in case it was.
Thank you!

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 6:39 a.m.

Hey Rajoshi, thanks for asking this! Indeed it’s a high-sodium recipe considering the vegetable bouillon cube and miso in it. Plant-based lifestyles including a variety of whole foods generally don’t have excess amounts of sodium in them, so we do enjoy some higher sodium meals occasionally 🤗
