Umami Miso Mushroom Ramen

  • 1 1/2 cup Lightlife Original Crumbles

  • 3 tablespoons white miso paste

  • 1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms

  • 2 1⁄2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 cups vegetable broth

  • 1⁄2 tablespoon sesame seeds

  • 1 tsp chili oil

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1⁄2 tsp sugar

  • 4-5 cloves of garlic

  • 2 tablespoons ginger

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

  • salt and pepper to taste


Ramen Noodles, Spinach, Green Onions


Before you begin, cook and crisp your meatless crumbles with a tablespoon of soy sauce for about 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

Thinly slice your garlic, ginger and mushrooms. In a deep pot, place your garlic, ginger and mushrooms with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Sweat and brown for 15-20 minutes on medium low heat.

Next, add in your miso paste, soy sauce, sesame oil and sesame seeds. Stir well for 5-10 minutes until a thick-like paste forms.

Add in your broth and sugar and let come to a simmer for about 30- 40 minutes. In the meantime, begin to make your ramen noodles according to the package instructions and set aside.

Take your broth off the heat and drizzle in your chili oil. Top with your meatless Lightlife Crumbles, cooked ramen noodles, spinach and green onions.

  1. Okay, guys. This ramen is INSANE. Not only is it incredibly easy to make, it rivals restaurant quality ramen. The broth is rich, full-bodied, complex, and hit every taste point, and anything you add to it just builds on the majesty that is this broth. This will be my go-to ramen recipe for life! I did make a few modifications (swapping the crumbles out for a jammy egg, adding bokchoy, used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce — omit the sugar if you do this, and recommend doubling the mushrooms!)

    Important note that this makes one generous serving so multiply the ingredients as needed.

    Thank you for a life-affirming recipe 🙂
