FOR THE BROTH

Garlic, onion, and ginger. The aromatic and flavorful herbs, along with the pungent and exotic spices, work in harmony to create a sensational taste that forms the very essence of a rich and flavourful stew or broth.

Mushrooms. The umami and rich flavor of mushrooms tantalize our taste buds. For maximum flavor, use shiitake mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, or any variety you have at home.

Roasted Sweet Potato adds body and color to the broth. Besides, it raises our ramen noodle soup’s nutritional value, and the sweetness of the sweet potato perfectly balances the rest of the ingredients.

Peanut butter: Upgrade your health and nutrition game by switching to unsweetened peanut butter. Don’t have it on hand? No worries! It’s simple to make at home. Substitute with unsweetened almond butter if you wish.

RAMEN

When making this vegan recipe, you can use any type of ramen noodles that you prefer. Personally, I enjoy the Lotus brand noodles made of rice and millet. However, any type of noodle will work just as well. If you’re looking for a healthier option, you may use zucchini noodles instead. This will give you a greener version of the classic ramen dish.

How to serve the homemade noodles?

Listen up, you have full control over how you finish your ramen dish. The broth is thick and heavy, so it’s important to use fresh and light ingredients to balance it out. My top recommendations for toppings are raw carrots, roasted corn, chopped chives, and fresh herbs. Trust me on this one.

Other delicious ideas to finish your ramen up:

TARE

To give your ramen that perfect Asian flavor, you can finish it off by adding the tare sauce. This sauce has a highly concentrated flavor that adds a unique touch to all ramen bowls and gives it that final special touch.

Tare sauce is a thick and concentrated sauce used in many Japanese dishes, especially ramen. It typically consists of soy sauce, mirin (a type of rice wine), sake, sugar, and other seasonings that are boiled together to form a flavorful and aromatic sauce.

The tare sauce is usually added at the end of the cooking process to give the dish a final burst of flavor. It is an essential component of many Japanese dishes and is used to add depth and complexity to the overall taste profile.

Tare ingredients:

  • Soy sauce or tamari
  • Brown sugar
  • Rice vinegar
  • Roasted sesame oil

How to store ramen?

It is very easy to make and the broth can be stored in the refrigerator for a week without problems. Cooked ramen can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container. If you want to store it for longer, you can freeze it for up to 2 months. To reheat, simply thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat it in a pot with some broth or water.
