10-Minute Vegetable Ramen Noodles
Easy Vegetable Ramen Noodles with a spicy miso broth. Loaded with veggies, plant-based protein, and an optional soft-cooked egg, this vegetarian ramen noodle bowl is ready in just 10 minutes and is the perfect quick lunch or dinner.
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger grated
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 scallion sliced
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 Tbsp miso paste
- 2 oz soba noodles or one "cake" of instant ramen noodles
- 1/2-1 bunch bok choy chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1/2 medium carrot shredded
- 1/2 cup shelled edamame
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1/4-1/2 a red chile sliced
- 1 large soft-boiled egg optional
- black sesame seeds for garnish
Heat a medium-sized saucepan over medium high heat. Add 1 tsp sesame oil, the grated ginger, crushed garlic, and scallions. Sauté until vegetables are soft and just beginning to brown.
Add the vegetable broth and use a spoon to scrape any bits from the bottom of the pot.
Place the miso paste in a small bowl and add a few tablespoons of broth to make a slurry. Then, add this mixture back into the broth.
Add the noodles, and let cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring to break up the noodles.
When the noodles have softened most of the way, add the vegetables. Allow the ramen to simmer for another couple of minutes, and then transfer to a bowl.
Garnish with sliced scallions, cilantro, and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds. Season with soy sauce and / or Sriracha.

Once the noodles hit the broth you've got a fairly limited window before they start to get mushy, so I don't recommend making the ramen bowls in advance. However, you can certainly prep all of the components in advance to make things extra quick.
For example, if you had the veggies pre-chopped, the egg pre-cooked (stop the cooking in an ice bath so it doesn't over cook), and the broth ready to go, all you need to do is heat it up and add the noodles. You can even pre-cook the noodles, drain, rinse in cold water, and toss in a bit of sesame oil so they don't get too clumpy.
