Here’s a warm and hearty bowl of Kimchi Dumpling Noodle Soup!
Inspired by ramen, these noodles in a really flavourful and umami kimchi broth with mushrooms, homemade veggie dumplings, and veggies!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THE BROTH:
- sesame oil
- vegan kimchi
- vegetable broth or water
- minced garlic
- dried shiitake mushrooms or fresh mushrooms, sliced
- soy sauce
- miso paste
- Salt to taste
This is one of those really easy one-pot recipes that you can easily whip-up when you’re craving a bowl of noodles most especially on cool, rainy days when you want something warm and comforting.
I used my own homemade vegan kimchi, which has been fermenting for over 3 weeks so in terms of flavour it was perfect to be cooked down for a broth!
You can find my homemade vegan kimchi recipe here.
I added in some of my homemade frozen dumplings.
You can see below how I make my dumplings from scratch:
For the noodles, I used instant ramen noodles (that didn’t come with sauce packets) but you can opt to use any other noodles of your choice!
See the photo below (bottom right) for the instant ramen noodles I used.
There are from the brand Koka and I purchase them in packs of 5. They’re made of wheat so if you’d like a gluten-free alternative, I highly recommend these brown rice ramen noodles!
You can also find a similar wheat ramen noodle alternative here. (affiliate link)
But you can of course opt to use other noodles of your choice! Though of course they’ll no longer be ramen noodles.
I made these noodles and enjoyed them with some kimchi pancakes on the side for a perfectly comforting meal–with lots of kimchi, of course!

The recipe below makes 1 serving, but you can of course double the recipe. Enjoy!

Kimchi Noodle Soup with Dumplings
- Toasted sesame seeds and black sesame seeds for topping
- Sliced green onions for topping
- Vegan kimchi For topping
- If using dried shiitake mushrooms, rehydrate them overnight or soak in a bowl boiling hot water then cover for 5 minutes. Slice the rehydrated mushrooms into small 1/2-inch thick pieces. Don’t discard the mushroom water! You can mix that in the soup base later on.
- Heat a medium sized pot over medium. Add in the sesame oil. Sauté the vegan kimchi for 2 minutes. Add in the vegetable broth or water. Add in the garlic, mushrooms, soy sauce, miso paste, gochujang, and salt, to taste.
- Cover the pot and leave to boil over medium heat, around 5 minutes. Once the soup boils, add in the enoki mushrooms or other mushrooms (if using), bokchoy or other leafy greens, and dumplings.
- Cook the veggies and potstickers for a few minutes until cooked through. The dumplings will float once cooked. You can remove the veggies and dumplings from the pot to avoid from overcooking and place then place them in a bowl while you cook the noodles.
- Place the noodles in the soup and cook until still very chewy to avoid overcooking, usually 2-3 minutes less than package instructions, since it’ll continue to cook in the hot soup later.
- Once the noodles are still very chewy, turn off the heat. Transfer the soup and noodles into a bowl with the veggies and dumplings.
- Top with some sesame seeds and green onions, if desired. Enjoy your bowl immediately, while still hot! You can also enjoy this with more kimchi on the side.
