There are numerous different varieties of ramen across Japan, this vegan ramen ditches the commonly used bone broth base in order to stay strictly plant based. The flavours in the broth come courtesy of garlic, ginger, five spice, red miso, soy sauce and vegetable stock. Red miso, incidentally, is the more highly flavourful version of the sauce, compared to the milder white miso. One of the tricks to making a really memorable ramen is the garnishes. Here we sprinkle the delicious soup with sesame oil, sesame seeds, coriander and mint leaves. This vegan ramen will warm you up on a cold winter’s day, but still taste delicious whatever the weather.
