Why this Vegan Miso Ramen recipe?
There is nothing like slurping a warm bowl of ramen on a chilly day! Ramen is my ultimate comfort food, it's like a warm hug in a bowl and can solve all of problems 😀
However, a bowl of authentic Japanese ramen takes a lot of time and effort to make. That is how I came up with this recipe - one-pot, 20-minute Miso Ramen that is so simple but so nourishing and delicious! This recipe is perfect for busy people, college students and working people alike. It makes a quick meal yet fulfilling and satisfying at the same time!
Moreover, the broth of this dish is delicious and full of umami from the combination of shiitake mushroom, miso paste, garlic, ginger and green onions. For the added flavors, I used soy sauce for an even more savory, umami taste.
