Slow Cooker Vegan Miso Ramen Ingredients

Let’s begin with the yummy fresh veggies. I used celery, carrot, bok choy and mushroom, plus green onion. You can easily experiment with alternatives in slow cooker vegan miso ramen soup. I bet sugar snaps or edamame would be good.

As for the mushrooms, I used shiitake mushrooms but I also like other varieties. You could even use regular white or chestnut mushrooms rather than an Asian variety.

Other veggies you might want to try in your crock pot ramen soup include corn, eggplant, zucchini, green asparagus, and snap peas. So see what’s lurking in your vegetable drawer first!

As for the tofu, I recommend you use firm or even extra-firm. This isn’t the kind of recipe for silken or soft varieties since they will literally disintegrate! You will need oil to sauté the tofu. Take your pick from olive, canola, peanut, or any other kind of oil you want.

Gochujang, which is a type of chilli sauce from Korea, and red pepper flakes add a touch of heat to the slow cooker ramen. Add a tablespoon of miso paste too if you want more flavour in there.

Garlic, ginger, lemon juice, coconut aminos, sesame, and turmeric add even more flavour to the slow cooker vegan miso ramen soup. Finally you will need ramen, which are Chinese noodles, and vegetable broth. Use any noodles you have on hand: soba noodles, udon noodles, or rice noodles. If you want to add more of a presentation, you can top with some fresh herbs or a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

A Closer Look at Gochujang

This red chilli paste has both sweet and savoury flavours and it’s spicy and fermented. Gochujang is made with chilli powder, fermented soybeans, glutinous rice, salt, and barley malt powder. Feel free to sub Thai chilli paste or Sriracha, or any type of hot sauce, instead. If you don’t want any spice, simply omit this ingredient altogether.

How to Make Slow Cooker Tofu Ramen

The first thing to do is to warm up some oil in a pan and then sear the tofu in there after adding seasoning it. Brown it all over then mix in the ginger and garlic. Put the celery, carrot, bok choy and mushroom in the crockpot. Add the chilli sauce, lemon juice, broth, coconut aminos, sesame oil, turmeric, onion powder, and red pepper flakes to the crockpot. Add the tofu mixture too.

Now you can cover the slow cooker and cook the soup with tofu for either 3 hours on high or 5 hours on low, to suit your schedule. Pop the noodles in about 15 minutes before serving and check they’re soft before serving. This slow cooker vegan miso ramen soup is delicious with green onion sprinkled on top. You could also sprinkle some fresh cilantro on top before serving too. Offer extra hot sauce and coconut aminos at the table.

What are coconut aminos?

Basically, it’s a soy sauce alternative. It’s made from coconut sap though, instead of soy. Coconut aminos is both gluten free and soy free, making it a good alternative if you want to avoid either of those.

      Eleanor, I used two tablespoons but you can use less and add more, if needed, later. A little gochujang tends to go a long way!

      Hi Karin, gochujang is a Korean chili version of miso paste, so you can use that or you can use your favorite Japanese miso paste instead.

    I loved this. I used cremini mushrooms instead of shiitake as I couldn’t find any but followed the rest of the recipe as it is, and it came out delicious.
