This easy vegan ramen sauce recipe comes together in about 15 minutes. About as much time as it takes to cook the ramen noodles! The combination of the vegan oyster sauce, the peanut butter, and the heat from the gochujang, makes this recipe! This ramen recipe is not only a great last minute recipe, but it is a great recipe to make ahead and keep on hand. Just use one tablespoon (or more) of the ramen noodle sauce with one pack of ramen noodles. Make sure not to include the seasoning pack when cooking the ramen noodles. Enjoy!
Combining the vegan ramen sauce
There really isn’t anything to put the sauce together. Just add the ingredients to a bowl that is big enough and combine. The sauce is very concentrated and thick and needs to be refrigerated and is good for a couple of weeks. Most of the ingredients can be found at your local Asian grocery store, and vegan oyster sauce can be ordered online and can be found at Whole Foods. The gochujang sauce can be replaced by sriracha sauce or your favorite hot sauce. You can also just leave it out if you do not like any heat.
Using the sauce
It is important to not include the seasoning packet that comes with ramen noodles when cooking them. The extra seasoning will make the vegan ramen sauce taste very odd, not to mention very salty. The sauce recipe can be stored and used whenever the urge rises for a nice bowl of noodles. This is a vegetarian ramen sauce and can be used with meat too. I have used this with tofu, chicken, and pork also. It really brings a big flavor to whatever you use it with!
