Vegan Miso Ramen (Tantanmen)

  • Author: Jess Bunn
  • Total Time: 20 Minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Diet: Vegan


Inspired by Japanese Tantanmen and traditional Szechuan Dandanmian, this vegan miso ramen is soothing, creamy, meaty and above all absolutely addictively delicious



For the soup base

  • 40 g tahini
  • 40g miso
  • 1 Tbsp (10g) soya sauce
  • 1 Tbsp (15g) chilli crisp


  • 160g Dried ramen noodles, or noodles of choice


  • 250g brown mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chilli crisp
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 3 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 80g miso
  • 50g peanuts, roughly chopped

For assembly

  • 3 cups of vegetable stock (3/4 cup per bowl)
  • 1 cup of soy or oat milk, or plant-based creamy milk of choice
  • 2 pak choi, rinsed


  1. Prepare the soup base: mix together all of the ingredients in a small bowl until creamy and well-blended, then set aside.
  2. Sauté the mushrooms over high heat until softened and crispy – roughly 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add the miso, chilli crisp, garlic, ginger and rice wine vinegar, as well as the brown sugar, and cook for a further 2 minutes, or until the garlic is cooked and smells fragrant. Finally, add the chopped peanuts, stir until coated and set aside.
  4. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Add the washed pak choi to your noodle water and cook for 1 minute until softened, then remove and set aside until needed. Drain the noodles once cooked.


The given quantities in this recipe yield roughly four servings. To make one bowl, follow these steps:

  1. Add a heaping tablespoon of soup base to a soup bowl.
  2. Top up with 3/4 cup vegetable stock.
  3. Swirl in 1/4 cup of oat or soy milk (or your milk of choice).
  4. Top with freshly-cooked noodles, your mushroom mixture and 1/2 a blanched pak choi.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy!
