  • ½ tablespoon neutral oil
  • ½ teaspoon grated ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 3 stalks green onion white and green part separated
  • ½ tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • cups water
  • 1 piece of kombu 5"x3"
  • 2 instant noodle square* 63g each
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • a handful of bok choy halved
  • 1 tablespoon miso yellow
  • ½ tablespoon dou ban jiang fermented bean sauce
  • ½ cup unsweetened plant milk


  • 2-3 tablespoons frozen sweet corn thawed
  • a splash of chile oil
  • toasted sesame seeds


  • To make the ramen broth, heat a 2-quart saucepan and add the oil.
  • Sauté the ginger until aromatic. Then, add the garlic, white part of scallions, toasted sesame, and continue to sauté for another 30 seconds.
  • Next, add the water and kombu. Bring the mixture to a boil then lower the heat down and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. This step is to cook the kombu and you can place a lid over in this step but do make sure that the broth is simmering.
  • Remove the kombu. I saved mine for a side dish.
  • Then, immerse the bottom of the sieve in the broth. Using the back of a spoon, stir and press the miso and dou ban jiang through the sieve until all is dissolved.
  • Add the noodle and soy sauce. Cook the noodle as directed on the package.
  • Right before the noodles turn al-dente, add the bok choy and cook until crisp-tender. Swirl in the milk and cook for another minute to warm up the milk.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer noodle to a bowl.
  • To serve, top it with corn, chopped scallions (green parts), a swirl of chile oil, and toasted sesame seeds.



  • Please use 1 instant noodle square or double the amount of broth if you like more broth.
  • The instant noodle that I used is meant for a one-pot dish like this.
  • If you can't find store-bought chile oil, check my Easy 5-ingredient chili oil recipe. 
  • Please note that the saltiness of miso and dou ban jiang (fermented bean sauce) varies by brand, so taste test before adding more or serving.
