Meal Prep Ramen Noodle Salad Recipes
This vegan ramen noodle salad is the perfect meal prep lunch! I am obsessed with meal prepping: cooking large batch recipes on the weekend so I can enjoy easy meals throughout the week. You can check out all my meal prep friendly recipes here.
Salads can be difficult to meal prep because lettuce and spinach tends to wilt in the fridge over time, especially once dressing is added. But this simple ramen noodle salad really stands up to meal prep. It’s made with hearty veggies like cabbage and carrots, and actually tastes better after a day or two in the fridge! So make ahead, and enjoy later.
This Vegan Ramen Salad Recipe Is:
- Loaded with vegetables
- Great to meal prep or make ahead
- Vegan, vegetarian, and dairy free

Carrots, Cabbage, Green Onions – I stock up on organic produce with Misfits Market – they have a fantastic selection of in-season fruits & veggies, healthy pantry items, and great food finds for a fraction of grocery store prices! You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here!
- Ramen Noodle Soup: I love this vegan and gluten free ramen noodle soup which is made with rice noodles and a miso based sauce. 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.
- Lightly Salted Peanuts: for a yummy, nutty crunch! I like to use only unsalted or lightly salted peanuts when I cook.
- Light Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect sweet flavor to the sauce of this dish.
- Rice vinegar: I love this sweet & tangy rice vinegar
- Agave Syrup: I really like using this raw organic agave syrup because it’s a natural and sustainable sweetener, plus it is ridiculously inexpensive online so I always keep a few of these bottles in my pantry.
- Sesame Seeds – I love adding a handful of these sesame seeds to finish off this salad recipe! These seeds add a nice crunch and light flavor to the ramen.
