Healthy Vegan Spicy Thai Peanut Ramen

This healthy Thai peanut ramen is so hearty and filling, but still doesn’t feel heavy. The spicy peanut broth is so incredibly flavorful, you could really eat it on it’s own. Or add all kinds of different things if you don’t want ramen noodles.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 Teaspoons Olive oil
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Ginger, grated
  • 1 Teaspoon Green curry paste
  • 4 Cups Vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 Can(13oz.-14oz.) Coconut milk, full fat
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut butter, natural or organic
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave syrup
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 12 Ounces Ramen noodles


Peanut coconut broth

  1. * Note: Please watch the recipe video to see how easy it is to make this soup!
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Roast the garlic and ginger briefly while stirring, about 1-2 minutes. Then add the curry paste and sauté briefly. (At this point, you can also add other vegetables, sauté and then cook.)
  3. Pour in the coconut milk and broth and bring to a boil. Then stir in the peanut butter, soy sauce, agave syrup and jalapeño. Simmer the broth for about 10 minutes. Then add the ramen noodles and simmer for 5 minutes (or according to the packing instructions). (While the broth is cooking, prepare the tofu and the mushrooms.)

Crispy tofu and mushrooms

  1. Drain the tofu, wrap in kitchen paper and squeeze. Then cut into cubes and optionally marinate with the turmeric and corn starch (then the tofu will be crispier).
  2. Heat the peanut oil in two pans (or in one large pan). In one pan, fry the tofu until crispy from all sides. In the other pan fry the mushrooms until golden brown. Then add the mushrooms to the tofu, glaze with the soy sauce and stir to combine until evenly coated and nicely browned.
  3. Serve your Thai peanut ramen with the crispy tofu and mushrooms. Sprinkle freshly chopped scallions, parsley, peanuts and sesame or any other toppings on top.
  4. Enjoy! 😊
