Jump to Recipe

Doesn’t this bowl of vegan sesame ramen look like a bowl of just wholesome goodness 😍.

With all its fresh toppings, creamy sesame broth and oodles of noodles, this is the ultimate comfort food.

Slurp Slurp Slurp

A Japanese tradition is to slurp your ramen noodles.

They say the louder the slurp, reflects how much one is enjoying the ramen.

Mmmmm, if you can’t tell, I’m so digging into this big bowl of vegan sesame ramen right now, and the bigger the slurping the better! Am I right?

Nom Nom

During our Japan holiday, we were lucky enough to taste some amazing, authentic ramen everyday, and coming home, of course I gotta make my own!

And I’ve Made It Vegan!

In Japan, the ramen broth is usually made from chicken or pork with a variety of ingredients such as pork bones, tuna flakes, kelp to name a few, and cooked for hours to create that depth of flavour.

But not in this case, I’ve kept it simple, by using a vegetable base, with lots of seasoning, and use of fresh vegetables, herbs and spices to add that flavoursome layer of flavour and texture.

So Quick And Easy

Oodles Of Noodles

Did I mention it’s so easy to make as well?

Now, by no means is this authentic japanese ramen, but goodness me, is this vegan sesame ramen noodle good, 🤤🤤🤤 and so satisfying too.

Simply combine all the ingredients for the broth in a pot, bring it to boil, and then just let it simmer while you cook the noodles.

Add your favourite toppings, condiments, and BOOM💥, you got yourself a delicious and heart warming, belly satisfying eat!

Extra gold star if you add lots of healthy green vegetables with it!

Why not ditch the meat counterpart and give this vegan sesame ramen recipe a go.

Recipe Notes

 

*Chicken Style Stock – To give it that extra flavour, I use chicken style stock to the dish, but don’t worry, were not using real chicken.

 

Just look for the stock that says “chicken style”, they’re usually just vegetable stock with added seasoning for flavour and no chicken is really used.

 

Be sure to check the ingredients label, just to be sure, or alternatively you can use vegetable stock if you prefer.

 

Vegetables and tofu toppings used in this recipe is what I like to eat. Sometimes I mix it up depending on what I feel like, you’re more than welcome to change the topping more suited to your taste.

 

The choice and number of topping used will change the prep time.

 

Same goes for the garnish!

 

Note: Garnish qty is not for per serving. Eg. 10 grams of coriander is to spread between the 6 servings 😉.

 

Reminder this recipe serves 6, so do halve it if your making for less.
