What's in the Recipe?
This is a pretty basic soup recipe with a couple of key ingredients (plus lots of toppings):
First, miso paste. Have you cooked with it yet? Miso is a fermented soybean paste. It adds tremendous umami flavor. Plus, since it's fermented, it brings good-for-your gut benefits to this soup (just don't overheat the miso paste and kill those good microbes!).
We round out the savory bowl of noodles with a dollop of JOI to create the creamiest broth for these noodles to soak up. No dairy required! Plus, JOI adds a boost of nutrition too. Shop it here.
How Can I Customize this Soup?
Have fun with this soup by play around with the toppings!
While this is mostly a noodle soup, go crazy with the toppings at home.
- Greens! Baby bok choy, spinach, kale, swiss chard
- Veggies: broccoli, shredded carrot
- Protein: shelled edamame, hard boiled egg (not vegan), tofu, shrimp or chicken
- Herbs & Seeds: Thai basil, black sesame seeds, green onion
These are just some of the amazing healthy toppings that can transform this simple noodle dish into a show stopping meal. Get creative and clean out that produce drawer!
What's that Flavor Combination?
We’ve also included our own version of ramen seasoning that won’t leave you feeling icky. This low sodium version is going to be your go-to! Get that take-out flavor at home this season with Creamy Miso Ramen.

Here's the Recipe:
Creamy Miso Ramen
This soup is a flavorful umami explosion with noodles and vegetables!
2-3 cups vegetable broth
1 block ramen noodles
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons miso paste (we like sweet yellow miso)
2 Tablespoons JOI milk concentrate (almond or cashew)
pinch of salt, to taste
Toppings of choice: baby bok choy, spinach, broccoli, shredded carrot, shelled edamame, Thai basil, black sesame seeds, green onion, tofu
Bring the vegetable broth to a low boil and whisk in spices, JOI, and miso paste. Once it is thoroughly combined, the liquid should turn lighter in color.
Then, add in the ramen noodles. Cook 5-7 minutes until noodles are tender.
Splash more vegetable broth if you want more broth in your bowl. Ladle into bowls and top with desired toppings!
