Soy Milk Ramen

With its rich, savory broth and satisfying noodles, ramen is a universal favorite, loved by many. Traditionally, ramen features a broth made from meat or fish, but there’s a delightful variation that offers a unique twist: Soy Milk Ramen. This creamy, flavorful version not only caters to those seeking a plant-based option but also introduces a luscious depth that's both surprising and delightful.

Soy milk, made from ground soybeans and water, is a staple in many Asian cuisines. Known for its creamy texture and slightly sweet flavor, soy milk serves as an excellent base for ramen, providing a smooth, velvety broth that perfectly complements the noodles and other ingredients. Unlike dairy milk, soy milk is naturally lactose-free and often lower in calories, making it a healthier alternative without compromising on taste.

Incorporating soy milk into ramen isn’t just about substituting one liquid for another; it’s about creating a whole new flavor profile. The slight nuttiness of soy milk, combined with the savory elements of traditional ramen ingredients, creates a perfect, comforting blend of flavors. 

To make this comforting bowl of Soy Milk Ramen, start by preparing 1 package of Mike’s Mighty Good Ramen according to the instructions on the package. Choose any one of our mild flavors, such as the Vegetarian Miso Ramen or our Chicken Ramen.

This usually involves bringing a pot of water to a boil, adding the noodles, and cooking until they reach your desired level of tenderness. When the water comes to a boil, stir in 1 cup of soy milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Adding the soy milk early allows it to infuse with the noodles and create a creamy base. Incorporate half of the Mike’s Mighty Good Ramen soup base and the seasoning oil into the pot to ensure a balanced flavor without being too overpowering. Next, add mushrooms (shiitake or cremini recommended) and let them simmer in the broth until they are tender and have absorbed the flavors of the soup. Once the noodles are cooked and the broth is well-flavored, ladle the ramen into bowls. Top each bowl with sliced green onions, a drizzle of toasted sesame oil, and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Serve your Soy Milk Ramen hot.

Soy Milk Ramen is a masterpiece. The creamy broth envelops the noodles, creating a velvety texture that is incredibly satisfying. Each ingredient plays a crucial role in building a complex, yet harmonious flavor profile. The slight sweetness from the sugar, the umami richness from the mushrooms, the fresh bite of green onions, and the nutty undertones from the sesame oil and seeds—all these elements come together to create a dish that is both comforting and gourmet.

This recipe is also highly versatile. While the core ingredients remain the same, you can easily customize it to suit your taste. Add some tofu for extra protein, or throw in some leafy greens like spinach or bok choy for added nutrients. You can even spice it up with a touch of chili oil or sriracha if you prefer a bit of heat.

Whatever the occasion, Soy Milk Ramen fits the bill. It’s easy to prepare, yet sophisticated enough to feel like a treat. Plus, it’s a great way to introduce plant-based ingredients into your diet without sacrificing flavor.
