With all its fresh toppings, creamy sesame broth and oodles of noodles, this is the ultimate ramen comfort food for you vegan sand non vegans!
In a large pot, heat oil on medium heat.
Then pan fry garlic and ginger, stiring occassionaly till fragrant.
Then add the remainder of the vegan sesame broth ingredients into the pot, and bring broth to boil.
Once broth comes to boil, reduce heat and let broth simmer till ready to assemble.
In a medium size pot, half fill pot with water and bring water to boil.
Once water is boiled, gently place all the toppings into the water and let it blanch for 1 - 2 min, and remove from heat.
Empty topping into a sieve and run the toppings under cold water, to stop it from further cooking.
Fill another large pot with water and bring to boil.
Once boiled, place ramen noodles in hot water and cook noodles till just soft.
Note: Don't over cook your noodles as the hot both will further cook the noodles too. You want to retain a firm yet soft noodle texture.
Once noodles are cooked, remove and divide noodles into large noodle bowls

Place your choice of toppings into the bowl of noodles.
Then using a ladle, carefully scoop some of the hot broth into your noodle bowls.
Garnish with a sprinkle of chilli oil, coriander, sliced spring onion, fried shallots, toasted black sesame seeds and fresh chilli if you like it hot!
*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.
