Spiralized Vegan Ramen Soup with Zucchini Noodles Recipe

I think that I could probably fill an entire year on this blog with variations of ramen noodle dishes.

I’ve already got a plethora of similar spiralized noodle dishes on Pinterest, here.

Yes, I said plethora.

Spiralized Vegan Ramen Soup with Zucchini Noodles Recipe

Whenever I’m stumped for a recipe idea, I think, “Oh, well I haven’t don’t a ramen noodle bowl with {insert food item here.}”

Today, I’m bringing you a gorgeous bowl of zucchini noodle ramen that’s 100% vegan, extremely easy to make and packs a lot of warm, fall-friendly flavors. And yes, it does have that umami punch, on account of the soy sauce broth.

If you think you’ll be hungry after eating this, think again – it’s very filling and tasty, it’ll leave you feeling nourished. It does have a pretty low calorie count, so if you’d like to add some protein, try stirring in some tofu, quinoa or, if you’re not vegan, a soft-boiled egg would work wonders, as would something heartier like pork belly or something leaner like shrimp.

If you’re not vegan or vegetarian, sub in chicken or beef broth in here, it’ll add a richer, more robust flavor.

These meals are meant to inspire you to make your own substitutions. We all have different preferences. For example, my sister’s boyfriend hates mushrooms. SO, if you don’t like mushrooms, take them out and add something else in, like say, snow peas or another noodle, like carrots or daikon.

If you’re gluten-free or Paleo, swap in coconut aminos or tamari for the soy sauce and voila.

Spiralized Vegan Ramen Soup with Zucchini Noodles Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon white or yellow miso paste
  • 7 oz baby bok choy ends trimmed and leaves separated
  • 2 scallions diced, white and green parts separated
  • 1 inch piece of ginger peeled and minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion cut into 1/2” slices
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3.5 oz shiitake mushrooms halved
  • 1 large zucchini or 2 small zucchini Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • hot sauce to garnish (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black sesame seeds + 1/4 teaspoon white sesame seeds mixed together

Instructions

  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in half of the oil. While oil heats, rub the bok choy with the miso paste using your fingers to cover completely. Once heated, add in the bok choy and cook 3 minutes per side or until charred. Remove the bok choy and set aside and then immediately add in the rest of sesame oil, white scallions, ginger, onion and garlic to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until onions soften. Then, pour in the stock and soy sauce, cover and bring to the boil. Then, add in the mushrooms, lower to a simmer and let cook for 5 minutes or until mushrooms soften. Then, add the zucchini noodles and cook for 2-3 more minutes or until noodles are cooked to al dente or your preference.
  • Using pasta tongs, carefully transfer the noodles to two serving bowls and top with the bok choy. Then, ladle over with the broth mixture. Garnish with green scallions, sesame seeds and hot sauce, optional and serve immediately.

oh gosh, so excited about the addition of the WW points! saves me a lot of time, although i must admit, your recipes are always so healthy that i often skip calculating them, figuring that whatever points i have left for dinner should always cover it!
Ali Maffucci says:
Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you're excited to see them!
Mary Beth says:
I agree on the WW points! That's a big plus for me. Thank you so much! And BTW, this ramen soup looks wonderful. Can't wait to try it. I'm unfamiliar with miso paste, though, and often hesitate to add yet another ingredient to my over-full pantry that I might not use often. Can you explain its role/benefit and suggest other uses?
Melissa says:
I love that you have added in ww points! Do you base them just on the nutritional information of the recipe? Or do you actually consider that most veggies are 0 point?
Ali Maffucci says:
Melissa, we just joined Weight Watchers so that we can have access to their PointsPlus® calculator, so they are officially calculated!
Chris says:
Is that sodium content on the ramen soup correct...even with using low sodium soy sauce?
Ali Maffucci says:
Using online nutritional calculators can be tricky, because they don't always include the brand that you are using and I always use low-sodium products (like soy sauce, broth, etc.) The sodium count is just an estimation, but just watch the sodium counts on the products you use to make this recipe and it'll drastically reduce it. Hope this helps!
Hillary says:
I have ALWAYS wanted an inspiralized version of this!! Or did I just miss one before? Either way, awesome! Where were you this weekend?
I am a avid follower of your website and recipes. My husband often jokes that the inspiralizer cost him a mere $50.00 but he is now spending hundreds in produce! Anyway, having loved your website for months, your forth sentence above has a typo. I think you meant "haven't done".

It must be higher sodium because of the miso paste.

I'm SO happy I opened my email this morning. I make jelly as a side job and I've got a big order I'm delivering today outside of Baton Rouge (where there is a Trader Joe's). I've been making my shopping list for a few vegetarian meals, including your vegetarian pad thai. (I feel like we've been eating way too much venison and wild hog and my waistline agrees!) And I've got my ice chest ready for the long drive back home. I've never tried one of your recipes that I didn't love. And what you said about substituting is so spot on. That's what makes a good home cook! Your recipes are so easy to modify and really do INSPIRE (as do you). I can't wait to make this tonight.
I've never been a ramen fan, but I've never had fresh, homemade ramen so that's the problem! I need to try this soon. Seems like such a warm and comforting soup for chilly nights!
Didn't mean to reply to your comment sorry!! But I live in Baton Rouge and we love our Trader Joe's :)
Emily Huval says:
Ha ha! No worries! I'm in Cajun country (St. Martinville, but work in Lafayette sometimes). Any time I'm in BR, I jump at the chance to visit Trader Joe's!
Maggie says:
Ali- you have just taught me that soy sauce is not gf. I never looked at the back- never occurred to me to!!! I feel like a big big idiot. Lol. Thanks for the sub!
Anita says:
Ali you are a gem! I am seafood vego but trying to incorporate a bit of meat into my diet and tried Ramen for the first time last week. It was lovely but found it heavy on the noodle side - and the pork (which I didnt eat). I was thinking I could make one with zucchini noodles but was not sure where to start - so this is great. Cant wait to try it. Thanks for all of your fabulous creations!
Karen says:
Looks delicious But.... where does the protein and iron come from in the nutritional information.
maria says:
It is getting cold in SoCalif. Made this tonite and added shrimp - it was super easy and yummy. Thanks for yet another great way to add in more veggies!!! Love your recipes.
Wendy B says:
Oooooo Ali - I've been a silent stalker on your blog and this recipe made me speak up. I just made this for dinner and it is AMAZING. I haven't made one bad thing off the blog or out of your cookbook - Great job! So far I've gotten 5 people to buy the Inspiralizer and your cookbook - you rock!
Ali Maffucci says:
Thank you so so much! I'm so happy to hear you liked the recipe!
Karen says:
Just wondering still about the protein and iron. Do these stats come from a different recipe? I love your recipes, cookbooks and the spiralizer. Have bought many for gifts.
Amber says:
My guess is it comes from the miso paste, since that is made out of soybeans.
nicole zephirin says:
great reipes! enjoyable healthy inspiralized vgan soup! thanks!
Angeline Fernandes says:
Followed this recipe exactly and it turned out awesome on the first try! I'm new cook, so this was a pleasant surprise! High recommend it because it kept me and my boyfriend full and tasted amazing!
Ali Maffucci says:
So so happy to hear that, thank you!!
Chocolate Thunder says:
This has all the ingredients to make a delicious soup, but the 1,796 mg of sodium per serving is absolutely obscene!
Pudgy says:
I'm looking forward to reading your recipe suggestions
darrell says:
is there anyway to get the sodium down?
Jessica says:
So excited to see WW points! Thanks so much it really helps!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
