Miso Ramen

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
  • Salted Butter
  • Tamari or Soy Sauce
  • Green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 package Ramen Noodles OR Vermicelli Rice Noodles if you are gluten-free like we are.
  • Fresh spinach leaves
  • Thinly sliced carrots
  • Nori cut into strips
  • Bean sprouts
  • Spam sliced and pan -ried until golden brown
  • Fresh Jalapeno and Serrano chiles sliced
  • 4-5 eggs soft boiled


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.

For broth:

  • 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.
  • Cook rice noodles according to package directions

To serve:

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