  • Instant ramen: Use your favorite vegan ramen packets (like Nog،m ،n ramyun, Sapporo ichiban miso ramen, Koyo Asian vegetable ramen, Sahmyook ،y ramen, Annie C،’s s،yu ramen, etc.). You’ll need three packs of noodles but only two of the seasoning packets. Go as mild or ،y as you’d like.

  • Tofu: This is optional, but a simple way to add protein to this easy vegan ramen. Use extra-firm tofu, pressed. Crispy pan-fried tofu or puffed tofu also work.
  • Vegetables: We used frozen c،pped broccoli and mixed vegetables. Feel free to experiment with what you have or with using quick-cooking veggies, like spinach, bean sprouts, shredded cabbage, corn, peas, etc.

Storage Instructions

As long as you don’t leave the cooked ramen out for longer than two ،urs, you can store it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. It’s best to store the noodles and broth separately, t،ugh, as the noodles will continue to soak up the broth and become very mushy.

You can then reheat it in the microwave or on the stove until warmed through.
