Vegan Japanese Udon Noodle Soup
Plant-based Udon Noodles

Helpful Equipment


  • 12 oz. Japanese Thick Udon Noodles (1 package)
  • 3 oz. Oyster Mushrooms (2 small packages)
  • 1 Bunch Spinach
  • 7.5 oz. Corn (½ can)
  • 3.5 oz. Enoki Mushrooms (½ package)
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Broth (be sure it is 100% plant-based)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp. Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp. Roasted Sesame Seeds
  • 1 Sheet Nori Paper (roasted seaweed)


  • Cook the udon in boiling water as directed. You may want to cook slightly less, so that it does not become overdone when added to the broth.
  • In a separate pot, combine vegetable broth, water, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Keep warm on low heat.
  • In a small saucepan, cook oyster mushrooms until they start to become soft and give off some of their water.
  • Once udon is done cooking, drain and add to your broth.
  • Turn up to medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes. This will allow the noodles to absorb some of the broth’s flavor, which will continue as it sets.
  • Portion out your udon and broth evenly so there is enough broth in each bowl to be soup-like.
  • Add in oyster mushrooms, spinach, corn, and enoki mushrooms to each bowl and cover for 1-2 minutes. This will allow the broth to soften the spinach.
  • Top with roasted nori flakes and sesame seeds, and dig in!
