Gluten-Free Ramen-Style Black Eyed Pea Noodle Bowl (Vegan)

  • Author: Raquel Smith
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


A delicious twist on a New Years tradition – a black eyed pea noodle bowl! With flavors reminiscent of ramen and less than 30 minutes until dinner is served, this recipe is a true winner. Plus, it’s both vegan and gluten free!


  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 4 cups vegetable broth*
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 14 oz dried rice noodles (we use pad thai-style noodles)
  • 1 can black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chopped greens (such as beet greens, chard, or spinach)
  • 1 Tbsp non-dairy butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste


  1. Heat the sesame oil in a medium to large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and spices and cook while stirring until the garlic is fragrant and just barely starts to brown, about 1 minute.
  2. Carefully add the vegetable broth, water, and soy sauce, then turn up the heat and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the rice noodles and peas to the pot and continue to cook on high until it begins to boil again, about 2 minutes. Immediately remove from the heat, stir in the chopped greens and butter, and let sit covered for 8-10 minutes.*
  4. Check that the noodles are tender, then stir in the cilantro and green onion. Taste the broth and add salt as needed (I used a 1/2 tsp). Serve immediately.


– I used the “Organics” brand vegetable broth, which is light in color and has a great flavor. Go with one whose flavor you know you like, as its flavor is front and center in this recipe.

– Adjust the cooking time for the noodles according to package directions, if necessary.
