The Treacle kitchen has long been influenced by Asian cuisine, and it’s been great to see more and more people enjoy the traditional foods of the region. We’ve also seen an increase in the number of guests who are cutting out meat so we wanted to create a ramen dish which they could enjoy. The kombu stock and miso paste give the dish a distinctive umami flavour and a depth which you’d usually only expect from a meat stock.


  • For the Soup:
  • A:
  • 3L Water
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 50g Crushed ginger
  • 1cm Galangal
  • 4 Green onions finely sliced
  • 4x3cm Dried kombu
  • B:
  • 200g Miso paste
  • 3 tbsp. Gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 6 Kaffir lime leaves.
  • C:
  • 1 tbsp. Sesame oil
  • 1 Clove garlic, grated
  • 250g Rice noodles
  • For the Toppings:
  • Julienne carrot
  • Kale
  • Swede
  • Edible flowers


Vegan Miso Ramen

Prepare your toppings before making the soup and noodles: julienne 1 carrot, thinly slice your swede and wash kale.

You will need to add the soup and toppings right away or the noodles will get cold, so you won’t have time to prepare the toppings at the end.

Put Ingredients A in a large pot and let boil for 15 minutes.

Strain, putting the broth back in the pot. Add ingredients B to the broth and let it simmer at low heat.

Cook the rice noodles according to the package. While cooking noodles, add ingredients C to the soup and stir. After cooking noodles, immediately cool under a cold tap.

Add the washed kale and sliced swede to your soup leave it on a simmer for about a minute to soften the vegetables.

Remove the kale and swede, and it’s ready to serve.

In ramen bowls divide evenly around the edges:

Rice noodles, julienne carrot, kale and swede (pre-blanched in ramen stock).

Add the hot ramen broth and garnish with edible flowers.

Serve with a wedge of lime and chilli flakes.
