Miso Ramen with Spam Soup Recipe with Soft Boiled Eggs, Spam and Vegetables
This particular recipe is for a Miso-rich Ramen broth, loaded with veggies and spam. Yeah, you heard right. Spam.
Hon Dashi [Which is a bonito stock base
aka: dried fish. Don't let that scare you! Your broth will not be fishy at all - but skip it if you are really wary. Straight up miso broth is also just fine.]
Red miso paste
Tamari or Soy Sauce
package Ramen Noodles OR Vermicelli Rice Noodles if you are gluten-free like we are.
Fresh spinach leaves
Thinly sliced carrots
cut into strips
sliced and pan -ried until golden brown
Fresh Jalapeno and Serrano chiles
For Soft Boiled Miso Eggs, [can be done day before]:
Bring salted water to a boil. Gently lower eggs into water one at a time with ladle, bring temp down to low and simmer about ten minutes.
Remove from heat, remove shells and set eggs into a miso broth: 2 c water, to 6 tablespoons miso paste, 2 tablespoons Tamari or Soy until ready to serve.
Heat 2.5 tsp of HonDashi + 2 quarts of water over medium heat, but do not boil
When Dashi reaches about 100 degrees Fahrenheit, separate 1-2 cups of Dashi into another bowl
Add 6 TBSP of Red or Dark Miso to the reserved Dashi
Whisk until smooth
Add back into pot [MAKE SURE NOT TO BOIL]
Add 1 TBSP of salted butter and green onions
Add dash of Tamari or soy sauce to taste
Let very gently simmer for 10 minutes
Broth is ready. Keep covered on very low heat until ready to serve.

Layer bowls with noodles, veg, and any other toppings desired. Ladle broth over top and serve.
