It’s not easy to find successful recipes that are gluten free, vegan, AND delicious. That’s why you might be just as surprised as I was with the taste of this gluten free vegan ramen dish!
It’s quick, easy, and a yummy recipe for any vegan or gluten intolerant individual, like myself. It is filled with ramen noodles, decadent tofu, and an addicting flavour. You’ll be adding this to your favorite recipe book after the first try.
And if you also love trying these styles of dishes during the cooler months or rainy weather, I highly recommend it for that, too. The way it instantly warms your belly and brings a smile to your face will have you eager to eat it again the next day, and the next, and the next…
The best part is that it’s home-made, meaning you made it yourself! There’s no flavor or experience that beats that sensation of feeling like a pro, “ramen” chef.
You won’t just be throwing together the noodles, tofu, and greens. You’re also going to be making your own home-made ramen seasoning. Instead of using that packaged ramen from the store, it’s time to invest a little extra time and a touch of love into your ramen dish. Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than you might think.
Traditional ramen seasoning requires only a few ingredients (see my full recipe below). You don’t need much cooking expertise to make it, and if I can do it, rest assured that you can, too!
Remember, the most important part of this gluten free vegan ramen dish is the broth. You can’t have it without making a complete ramen soup – especially when it’s a vegan version. How else are you supposed to achieve that delicious flavor?
You get this heavenly savory flavor from the healthy shiitake mushrooms and miso paste added into the dish. And if you want a deeper, richer flavor, all you need to do is let the broth sit for longer. But if you’re like me and can’t wait to get a taste, it really only needs 20-30 minutes to make. Either way, it’s still tasty.

Use a softer variation of tofu to give the ramen soup a lovely “silky” texture. This is the preferred way to go for a soup or broth. Finish it up with the classic ramen noodles. I use gluten free ramen noodles, but if you don’t need gluten free, you can opt for organic whole-grain ramen noodles because this is often easier to digest (and a healthier alternative).
