What’s In These Ramen Noodles with Basil Pesto?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Light Sweet Miso Paste – I love light and sweet miso paste, I keep a few packs in my pantry for recipes when I want to add a little umami flavor in a pinch. Miso is a paste made from lightly fermented soy beans, and is a classic in soups.
  • Garlic
  • Tamari: tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. Tamari has a bright salty flavor, and adds a really nice depth of umami to this dish.
  • Ramen Noodle Soup: I love this vegan and gluten free ramen noodle soup which is made with rice noodles. It has great flavor and is perfect for those who are trying to eat more vegan or gluten free. If you don’t have any dietary restrictions, then you can use any ramen noodles you desire.
  • Kale
  • Green Onion
  • Peanut Oil: or other light high-oleic oil for cooking over high heat, this peanut oil is a light oil  which works great in this pesto sauce… use vegetable oil for a nut free version instead.
  • Sesame Seeds – I love adding a handful of sesame seeds to finish off this soup recipe! These seeds add a nice crunch and light flavor to the ramen.

Easily Grow Fresh Thai Basil on Your Counter All Year Long

We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh Thai basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time.

I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

How Do I Make This Vegan Pesto Ramen Recipe?

  1. To make the pesto, add all the pesto ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend, adding 1 additional tablespoon of water at a time for a thinner sauce as desired.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the miso paste, tamari, and noodles and reduce the soup to a simmer. Cook the noodles for 6 to 7 minutes until they are done.
  3. Stir in the pesto, kale, and green onion. Top with a handful of sesame seeds for some added texture.
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed, adding more Sriracha for heat.
