Learning how to make a meatless ramen recipe at home

Vegetarians might have a hard time trying to find in Japan a meatless version of ramen, which is often made with pork or chicken broth. YUCa, a home cooking chef, welcomed me into her house and taught me a delicious vegetarian ramen recipe.

YUCa offers many types of cooking classes in Tokyo, in English, including traditional versions of ramen.

Kombu- soymilk is my favorite soup base for vegetarian ramen, it makes for a super creamy broth!

I like ramen but don't know where to find a meatless stock so I made a ramen stock from coconut milk. You should try it sometimes.
