You will LOVE my Spicy Sweet and Sour Ramen Soup Recipe. It's quick and easy and ready in 10 minutes, give or take and with only a handful of ingredients. This Ramen Noodle Soup is Umami good and Vegan too!


  • 1/2 package smoked tofu, chopped into small cubes
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, (optional but tasty)
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, jarred, (optional)
  • 2 and 1/2  tbsps red curry paste
  • 2 tbsps Better than Bouillon Vegetarian No Chicken soup Base
  • 2 tsp (or more) chili garlic sauce
  • 3/4 cup sauerkraut, drained REALLY well
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 packages Ramen noodles, discard the seasoning packets ( there are a lot of oil and preservative free ramen noodles available in stores now)


  • sliced green onions, (green part only)
  • chopped fresh herbs like cilantro and basil


  1. First start by adding all ingredients, except your instant noodles to your soup pot Bring everything to a boil on high heat.
  2. Next add in the noodles, turn down heat to a lower boil and cook for a few minutes until noodles are done, don't overcook. Remove from the heat. Stir and serve. Voila ramen noodle soup in a flash!
  3. Lastly garnish your  bowl with some chopped green onions and fresh herbs, if that's your thing! Enjoy! Step by step photos in above post


  • I do not recommend Thai Kitchen Brand Red Curry Paste. I do not like the flavour.
  • For a more sour flavour add some sauerkraut juice 1 tbsp at a time, tasting as you go?
  • If you'd like a sweeter broth feel free to add a tsp or two of sugar.
  • if you'd prefer your soup on the mild side just omit the chili garlic sauce, want it spicer add more?
  • If you don't have veggies on hand the soup will still be super tasty!
  • fresh herbs and green onions are optional. Tasty either way.
