Thai Coconut Ramen

Creamy, spicy and packed full of flavour. You’ll never look at a bowl of ramen the same after you’ve had this Vegan Thai Coconut Ramen.

Hands up if you love ramen as much as we do. When we were kids ramen simply meant that cheap noodle packet you buy from the grocery store when you need a quick meal. We’ve never heen happier to grow up. You learn that ramen is actually this beautifully constructed dish with complex flavours. Not to mention it’s the ultimate comfort food. Whenever we’re looking for something soothing and easy to make we reach for the ramen noodles and make our Thai Coconut Ramen. Looking for something a little more classic? Check out our Easy Vegan Ramen.

We love making this Thai Coconut Ramen because as far as ramen goes it’s fairly simple to make and with just a short amount of time there’s still a powerful amount of flavour that comes through in every spoonful. A combination of vegetable broth, coconut milk and familiar Asian flavours like garlic, ginger, lemongrass and curry make this broth super addictive. Complete with mushrooms, snow peas, green onions and red bell peppers.
