Recipe: Spicy Miso Ramen

Makes two bowls


Fresh ramen noodles (for two people)
4 cups water
4 tablespoons white miso paste
3-4 teaspoons S&B La Yu or chili oil
1/2 teaspoon hondashi
2 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 can corn kernels (15 oz can)
1 narutomaki (Japanese fish cake with a pink swirl)
1 stalk scallion (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds (pound with mortar and pestle until fine)
Light soy sauce to taste (optional)
Some seasoned roasted seaweed (cut into thin strips)


Bring the water to boil and then add in the hondashi, eggs, and finely ground sesame seeds. Bring the soup base to boil and reduce to 3.5 cups. Add in the miso paste, stir with a ladle of chopsticks until well dissolved. Add in the chili oil and light soy sauce to taste (optional).

Blanch the ramen noodles in a pot of boiling water until they are cooked. Rinse with cold running water, drain, and set aside.

In a serving bowl, add the noodles and then topped with the hard-boiled egg (sliced into half), narutomaki, corn kernels and chopped scallion. Pour the miso soup into the bowl and add the roasted seaweeds. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Notes:

Other than the toppings in my recipe, you should add pork slices, pickled bamboo shoots, etc. to miso ramen.
I have launched a new “Food & Grocery” store on Amazon. It offers ingredients that you will find in my pantry. Happy shopping and cooking!

    I’ll share a little secret for miso ramen – add some diced dikon in the soup, the flavor adds to dashi very well.

    I have been looking to buy for a fresh Ramen Noodle in Asian Markets in around Seattle area, but still cannot find any with a decent quality. They are mostly packaged with seasoning but I just want the noodle. Can you help? Thanks.
