Curried Coconut Ramen

Slurp up this incredibly creamy fusion ramen that pairs the best of Indian flavours with the Japanese classic. Secret ingredient: 20p instant chicken noodles (yes, they’re accidentally vegan in Tesco!). This recipe is from The Vegan Punks. 

IngredientsCurried Coconut Ramen on a plate

  • 400g mushrooms – sliced
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 400ml coconut milk (full fat)
  • 1.5 litre water
  • 250g broccoli – chopped into bite-sized florets
  • 3 x vegan instant chicken noodles – including the seasoning packets
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 cups sweetcorn


  1. Pour a splash of oil into a frying pan and bring to medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms until they’ve started to brown, add half a tablespoon of the curry powder and fry for another minute.
  2. In a large pan, add another splash of oil and fry off the remaining 1.5 tablespoons of curry powder for a minute.
  3. Pour in the coconut milk and water, and bring up to a simmer.
  4. Pop in the broccoli and keep simmering for 1 minute.
  5. Add the noodles (excluding the seasoning for now) and simmer for a further 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Sprinkle in the seasoning mix from the noodles, then add 1 to 2 tablespoons of soy sauce to taste.
  7. Serve up the noodles, broth and broccoli into bowls, then top with the curried mushrooms and sweetcorn.
