I hope I’ve convinced you to experiment with leftovers in your fridge now. Most of my favorite recipe creations come from me just stacking whatever I have left in my fridge in a bowl or pan and seeing how it turns out, including these creamy vegan mushroom Ramen. I’m not kidding when I say that this is one of the best things I’ve ever tried, and it only takes about 15 minutes and a handful of ingredients. # total profit

I had leftover coconut milk the other day when I made my plain cauliflower and chickpea masala on Facebook live, and Aldi had Baby Bella mushrooms on sale for a pack😱, so I had bought a few to roast, which I didn’t. I came home hungry for carbohydrates according to Orange Theory, I saw the coconut milk and mushrooms in my refrigerator and I immediately knew what I had to do!

The super simple broth for these Ramen (vegetable broth + coconut milk) is so good that I will use this method to make an ordinary 100% “cream” mushroom soup in the near future. So if you don’t like Ramen but you like creamy mushrooms, hang in there. 😉

WHAT KIND OF MUSHROOMS SHOULD I USE?

In any matter, try to get baby Bellas or normal-sized Portabella mushrooms for this recipe. The deep color and robust flavor of these mushrooms make a great impression, and I think ordinary Mushrooms would fall flat.

WHAT TYPE OF COCONUT MILK SHOULD I USE?

I used whole coconut milk in a can for this recipe and it made the broth extremely rich and delicious (and surprisingly, it didn’t taste like coconut). I think you could get away with light coconut milk, but be aware that the broth is not as creamy or thick. I am not suggesting using the coconut milk substitute type of coconut milk that comes in a cardboard box. It’s way too thin. Canned coconut milk only for this recipe.

WHAT TYPE OF RAMEN SHOULD I USE?

I used the super simple, super inexpensive. Nothing special is needed here. I threw out the spice packet and used my own vegetable broth (better than the Broth).
