Ramen Recipe

This vegetarian ramen recipe is our take on an easy ramen recipe that is full of flavor, vegetables, and ready in an hour!

Our Take on Flavorful Ramen Soup

Say hello to our version of delicious ramen! This ramen is not a traditional ramen recipe, but is indeed inspired by all of the delicious ramen we’ve enjoyed and made over the years.

This ramen recipe is inspired by different ramen recipes we’ve enjoyed or made. Our goal for this recipe was to develop a seriously flavorful broth and by-golly I think we’ve done it.

This ramen recipe is a commitment, but don’t shy away just because there is a longer recipe to follow! Though there is a longer method, it really easy a super easy recipe and you will not regret the time you put into it.

Please read the whole recipe before you start any part of the recipe!

I don’t know about you, but one of our favorite parts of enjoying a bowl of ramen is the ramen eggs! YUM.

These ramen eggs are not your traditional ramen eggs. We soft boil the eggs and then soak them in a delicious marinade that will eventually be added to the broth base for the ramen.

If you would like a very detailed step-by-step on these ramen eggs and tips and tricks to perfecting them, check out our post on quick ramen eggs!

After the ramen eggs are soaking in the marinade it’s time to prepare these delicious quick picked mushrooms that you will serve cold on top of your ramen.

We use a very similar method to pickle these mushrooms that we use for these quick pickled spicy peppers (which would also be a delicious topping for this ramen).

  1. Prepare your beech mushrooms by wiping them clean to remove any dirt.
  2. Add the rice vinegar, apple cider vinegar, red pepper flakes, and salt into a bowl and whisk everything together until the salt dissolves.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the vinegar mixture and toss so that all the mushrooms are coated.
  4. Let the mushrooms sit in the vinegar mixture until right before serving.

Yes, you can really use any mushrooms you’d like in this recipe. We recommend beech mushrooms or oyster mushrooms. However, you can use white mushrooms or bella mushrooms, just be sure to thinly slice them before tossing them into the vinegar.

After your eggs and mushrooms are soaking, it’s time to prepare the base for your ramen. This starts off by preparing the bok choy that will be served on top of the ramen right before serving.

What kind of bok choy do I use in this recipe?

We recommend using baby bok choy in this recipe! If you can’t find baby bok choy by a large bok choy and slice it into pieces!

This wouldn’t be a vegetarian ramen without a ton of veggies! Add the red peppers and carrots to the same pot that you cooked the bok choy in for 2-3 minutes.

While your carrots and peppers are cooking, remove the ramen eggs from the egg marinade and carefully set them aside.

Discard the tea bags and pour the broth through a fine sieve and into a bowl to sieve out any tea that may have become loose.

Pour this egg broth into the dutch oven with the peppers and carrots.

Finally, add the chicken broth, soy sauce, sriracha, and fish sauce to the dutch oven and whisk everything together until combined.

Bring everything to a boil and then add the ramen noodles to the pot and cook them until they still have a bite to them (about 5-7 minutes).

If you are planning to meal prep this ramen for the week, we suggest boiling the noodles in a separate pot, straining them, rinsing them in cold water, and keeping them separate from the broth until you are ready to serve.

The last step is serving the ramen! Turn the heat to low and add your bok choy to the pot to reheat.. When you serve the ramen in separate bowls add a halved ramen egg to each bowl along with the pickled mushrooms!

Yes! Feel free to add shredded chicken, grilled shrimp, pork, or any other meat you’d like to add!
