This Spicy Miso Ramen Recipe is topped with Chili Roasted Salmon (or tofu!), and swimming with baby bok choy and shiitake mushrooms. Use ramen noodles or swap these out for rice noodles.

If going vegan (or low cholesterol) leave off the egg and swap out the salmon for tofu.  If cutting out carbs, swap out ramen noodles with zucchini noodles or kelp noodles or just go heavy on the bok choy. If going gluten-free, try using a gluten free miso paste ( like chickpea miso).

This is one of those ramen recipes where you can customize each bowl keeping some vegan, some not, some low carb, some not, all at the same time. Lots of options here friends ….easy and adaptable, but the best thing???? It tastes amaaaaazing!!!

How to make ramen healthier:

Add greens!

One of the easiest way to incorporate more veggies into our diets, (without adding tons of calories or fats “to doctor them up”) is to include them in Broth-Based Soups.

A secret weaopon around here- an easy way of adding layers and layers of nutirents. Such a godsend!

For example- I’ll add handfuls of chopped greens- arugula (my favorite), spinach, watercress, bok choy, or baby kale into large pot of soup I’m making, right before serving-  really bumping up the greens to make it extra nutritious.

It’s also a great way to use up turnip greens or beet greens that might otherwise “die” in the back of the fridge.

Description

Simple Spicy Miso Ramen w/ Roasted Chili Salmon (or tofu!) with bok choy, mushrooms and scallions. Vegan and Paleo adaptable! Swap out zucchini noodles or kelp noodles to keep it Paleo! Make in 30 minutes!


Ingredients

Scale

Salmon and Shiitake Marinade
46 ounces salmon, thinly sliced, 3/4 inch thick – 3 to 4 slices per bowl. (or sub tofu, see notes)

4 ounces shitaake mushrooms, stems removed, sliced ( or use cremeni or button)

2 tablespoons soy sauce ( or Liquid Amino’s, or shoyu)

2 teaspoons sugar or honey or maple

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

13 teaspoons garlic chili paste ( 1= mild, 2= med, 3 = spicy) I like spicy. 🙂

Miso Broth
4 cups chicken broth or stock ( or veggie broth)- I know having both chicken broth and miso seem redundant, but the combo really adds depth.

2 tablespoons miso paste

1/2 teaspoon hondashi granules, more to taste ( optional, but will greatly enhance the flavor and really elevate the dish, giving it a smoky depth- FYI it’s not vegan.)

2 baby bok choy – sliced thin, legnthwise

3 scallions – white part ( save the rest for garnish)

4 ounces fresh ramen noodles, cooked according to directions ( or two ounces dry noodles, cooked) Or sub zucchini noodles or kelp noodles or a low carb, paleo option.

Optional Garnishes: Scallions, soft boiled egg, chili threads or flakes, Furikake or toasted sesame seeds, toasted nori sheet, chili paste, crispy shallots, sriracha


Instructions

Preheat oven to broil or 400 F ( Broil is ideal if you have this)
Stir the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and chili paste together in a small bowl. Brush the marinade over both sides of salmon and shitaakes and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Broil for 4-5  minutes or until salmon is cooked to your liking. Set aside.

Cook the noodles and make the broth. Bring the stock to a simmer in a medium pot. Add miso, hondashi and stir until combined. Add the bok choy and scallions, and wilt. Turn heat off or keep at a very low simmer. Taste, adjust heat, adding salt or chili paste if you like.

Divide the noodles among two bowls. Top with the salmon ( or tofu) and shitaakes. Arrange bok choy around the noodles and ladle the flavorful broth overtop.
Garnish with fresh scallions, soft boiled eggs, crispy shallots and chili threads.

Serve with chopsticks and a spoon. It’s ok to slurp. 😉


Notes

Hondashi granules are one of those ingredients that for me go hand in hand with Miso soup. It adds a smoky depth that I’ve come to crave. A good thing to add to your pantry, especially if you are a fan of Miso Soup. Note- it is not vegan, it’s made from fish. 😉

Trader Joe’s Sriracha Tofu is great sub for the salmon if  you are going vegan. Or you could just bake some firm tofu cubes or strips in the same marinade as above ( 20-30 minutes at 400.)

For the perfect soft boiled ramen egg, boil 3 inches of water in a medium pot, and once boiling, gently, with a spoon, place 2 eggs in the water and simmer gently for 6 minutes. Cool and peel, or store in the ridge for up to 4 days.

  1. This has been a go to favorite for my husband and me. Thank you for everything you post. I already loved cooking but you have impacted my cooking, my life, so much, I can’t thank you enough.

    I found you, fyi, when looking for an Ayurvedic cleanse after doing a rather intense one through a yoga studio. I’m a yoga therapist and yoga teacher and like to find things that follow ideas but are open to change for what works best with your own tastes, and body. I haven’t stopped following you and your amazing recipes, which always seem to show up in my email and reflect the mood and style I’m in at the time!

    Thank you!

  2. I’m a super fan of salmon! The glazed miso was INCREDIBLE ❤️‼️ Can’t wait to try the others, your recipes are so amazing , creative and easy we are all enjoying this new cook( me) in our home! Thank you so much….

  3. The marinade is amazing. My husband and I enjoyed this for dinner – a quick mid-week dinner, after me rushing straight home from work. Perfect!

  4. The salmon & shiitake in this are amazing. I sometimes alter the broth and serve with roasted veggies, but don’t mess with the marinade! Sometimes use portabellos instead of shiitake, too. So, so good served with chili garlic sauce!

  5. Loved this!!! Kinda reconstructed this a bit…used napa cabbage and Trader Joe’s veggie dumplings…marinated mushrooms in the sauce…but just incredible…a 10!

    1. Yes, absolutely. Most quick-cooking veggies would work here- green beans, snow peas, and a handful of spinach, or even edamame.

  6. This was so full of flavor and perfect on a freezing February night in Michigan! Followed the recipe to the letter and will make again. Thank you for the delicious recipe.

  7. This was fantastic! I substituted dried rice noodles I already had and added some kimchi to the broth. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly.

    My husband and I loved it.

  8. Made this tonight. I didn’t recognized many of the ingredients but the people at the Asian Market were so helpful. The family loved it. We will make this again. Thanks!
