What is Miso Ramen?

Ramen noodles soup, an iconic staple in Japanese cooking, is also known as a beloved dish worldwide.

Miso ramen is one of the popular ramen noodle soups, famous for its rich umami flavor from the miso broth.

The flavorful broth is made by blending miso paste with chicken-based broth and other seasonings. At ramen restaurants, a miso sauce frequently blends red and white miso paste to craft a flavorful complexity.

Miso ramen commonly includes a variety of vegetables, such as bean sprouts, cabbage, bamboo shoots, and chives. These ingredients provide crunchiness and add volume to the dish, making miso ramen a favorite among all.

📋 Ingredients

Here are the ingredients (amounts are in the recipe card below).

Ingredients for vegetarian miso ramen.
  • Ramen noodles: See below.
  • Vegetable of choice: While there are many options available, I select bean sprouts, Chinese chives, carrots, and scallions. See more topping variations below.
  • Soup ingredients: We will make simple homemade miso ramen broth with garlic, ginger, onion, sesame oil, sake, soy sauce, mirin, and miso paste (use red miso paste). Feel free to swap out sesame oil with vegetable oil or olive oil as a substitute.

Ramen Noodles

Ramen noodles.

Japanese ramen noodles are crafted from wheat flour, water, salt, and kansui, an alkaline mineral water that gives them their distinct yellow color and firm texture. Some ramen noodles may also contain eggs.

Different types of ramen noodles are available, such as thin, fat, straight, or wavy. While ramen chefs have their preferences, any of these noodles will work well for homemade miso ramen.

I like using fresh ramen noodles like the above, but you can also use dried noodles or instant ramen noodles.

For Vegan Ramen

Certain ramen noodles might include eggs. Therefore, opt for egg-free ramen noodles if you’re seeking a vegan miso ramen recipe.

How To Eat It

Shio ramen served in a ramen bowl.

Enjoy the noodles using chopsticks for the noodles, toppings, and a spoon for the broth.

In Japan, people slurp noodles and even drink the broth directly from the bowl without using a spoon. While slurping noodles may seem bad manner in some cultures, it is acceptable in Japan and also serves the practical purpose of cooling down the hot noodles for a more enjoyable eating experience.
