Substitutions and Variations

Fresh spinach or bok choy are good in mushroom miso bowls. Baby bok choy is good. You can add other ingredients, too, if you like, such as daikon radish, roasted sweet potato, roasted carrots, crispy tofu or bean sprouts.

As for the mushrooms, I love porcini and Bella mushrooms, but there are other options for this vegan miso ramen recipe. Fresh shiitake mushrooms or dried shiitake mushrooms would work well. If you aren’t making vegetarian or vegan ramen, you might like soft boiled eggs on top. For a vegetarian protein, consider tofu which also works perfectly in this Korean ramen soup recipe.

Rice noodles would work if you prefer those over ramen noodles. There are lots of ideas for different toppings for this vegan ramen recipe, so see what you have in the pantry. A splash of sesame oil or chili garlic sauce on top goes well with this rich broth. Sliced green onion makes a nice garnish.

What to Serve with Mushroom Ramen

Japanese authentic ramen or instant ramen miso soup makes a tasty lunch or light dinner served by itself. If you want to make some sides for the bowl of ramen, consider pork chop bites or crab cake egg rolls. They would go well with this ultimate comfort food.

Storage Instructions

  • Store:  Keep leftovers refrigerated in an airtight container and eat within 3 days.
  • Freeze:  If you know ahead that you want to freeze some, it’s best to freeze the ramen and broth separately.
  • Reheat:  Warm the vegan ramen broth recipe back up on the stove or in the microwave.

Mushroom Miso Ramen Recipe FAQs

What mushrooms are good in ramen?

You can use whatever type of fresh mushrooms you want or try dried porcini mushrooms or another kind. Since you’re making soup, you don’t have to rehydrate the mushrooms before adding them.

What is miso paste?

Miso is a Japanese condiment typically made with fermented rice and soybeans, which is needed to make this a gluten free ramen noodle bowl. Miso paste is sometimes made from fermented grains like wheat and barley, which is not gluten free miso paste.
