Vegan Yakisoba

Yakisoba is a Japanese stir-fried noodle dish that combines ramen-style noodles with some (mock) meat, veggies and umami yet slightly sweet yakisoba sauce. For this recipe, we make our own sauce, which is surprisingly simple and super delicious!

ditto! Clara

Serena Di Sabatino Di Diodoro - March 19, 2024, 11:18 a.m.

Yum! I changed the sauce a bit because it was too sweet for my taste (removed the sugar and swapped some of the ketchup for white wine) but besides that it was delicious!

Jacky Rivera - March 18, 2024, 12:04 a.m.

I absolutely loved this!

Aboni Ney - March 9, 2024, 12:08 p.m.

This recipe is the BOMB!

Caitlin - March 8, 2024, 2:21 a.m.

Hello! Love the idea of this recipe, unfortunately I cannot find the vegan mushroom sauce in my town. Do you have a suggestion for a substitution?

PUL Team - March 9, 2024, 12:15 a.m.

Hey there, Caitlin, black soybean sauce works as a nice substitute and is often available in international grocery stores. Otherwise, you could try hoisin sauce or more soy sauce to taste 😊

Salome V Ingen - March 7, 2024, 5:36 p.m.

Oh wow.. so tasty! Very satisfying to eat. The week before this recipe came out I ate Yakisoba on an animeconvention, and it was tasty! Only the "veggy one" had a couple of leafs of cabbage... now this makes up for it BIG time 🥰

PUL Team - March 7, 2024, 8:05 p.m.

Aw we're so thrilled that the Vegan Yakisoba was enjoyed, Salome! It means so much 😊

This was very good. This was my first recipe of many to come and it was so easy to follow the directions to make it turn out great!

Lisa - March 1, 2024, 9:17 a.m.

Loved it!! Was lazy and didn't do the frying step for the noodles and just added them straight in after boiling. Worked perfectly!

Elena Cruz - Feb. 28, 2024, 9:32 p.m.

Smiti Nathan - Feb. 28, 2024, 12:34 a.m.

Just made this and it’s delicious. It’s quite forgiving if you need to make substitutions, which I needed too. I added a little hot sauce too. Excited that it keeps well as leftovers ☺️

So happy you enjoyed it, Smiti, thank you!
