Tips for Making Butternut Squash Vegan Ramen Bowl

  • This Instant Pot ramen recipe also works great with acorn squash as a substitute for the butternut squash. Acorn squash lends a slightly nuttier flavor.

  • The whole cloves can be removed before serving your ramen bowl, if you would prefer. The cloves infuse the broth with flavor and turn quite soft after being cooked.

  • I really like the pungency of red onion in this broth, but white or yellow onion can be used in a pinch!

  • Avocado or sunflower seed oil works well as a replacement for the coconut oil if you would prefer.

  • The noodles as shown in the photos are these. We also like these noodles.

  • See the ‘Topping Ideas’ section above in this post for topping suggestions for this ramen recipe. The sky’s the limit!

  • This vegan ramen recipe stores well in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Store the broth and the noodles separately.

  • To reheat and serve: heat the broth in a pot on the stovetop over medium heat until warmed throughout. Pour broth over prepared noodles and top as you wish.

    This soup looks amazing! We devour homemade ramen in our home during the cooler months so I can’t wait to add this one to the mix.
