Prep Time5 mins


  • 1 nest of ramen [70g]
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 4 oz extra firm tofu cubed
  • 4 small heads bok choy chopped [80g]
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/4 shallot diced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1/8 cup roasted peanuts chopped [14g]
  • 3 4 stalks green onion
  • Microgreens and sesame seeds
Pad Thai Sauce
  • 1 tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1/8 lime juiced


  • Prepare the Pad Thai sauce by adding all the ingredients into a bowl and whisking together. If you do not like your food spicy add less sriracha.
  • In a pot add 1 tsp of sesame oil, the shallots and garlic. Cook on a low heat for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add in the broth, coconut milk and Pad Thai sauce. Bring to a boil.
  • While waiting for it to boil you can chop up the bok choy, peanuts, green onion and tofu.
  • In a pan add 1 tsp of sesame oil and pan fry the tofu until crispy.
  • Once the soup is boiling add the ramen, bok choy and half of the green onion. Mix together and boil until ramen is cooked.
  • When the soup is done and tofu is crispy you are ready to plate the soup!
  • Add it into a big bowl and top with extra lime juice, lime, sriracha if you like, peanuts, remaining green onion and microgreens.
  • If you want to make it even more like Pad Thai you could add in bean sprouts, vegan scrambled egg or even make the soup with Pad Thai noodles.
