Hikari Menraku Ramen Bowl: Miso

Miso may be one of the three basic ramen flavors, but it’s not boring. Aromatic miso and sesame come together to create a full-bodied and umami-rich base, perfect for the springy noodles. Be sure to add the Chinese fava bean chili paste just before eating to develop the final rich flavor!

Common Allergens: Wheat, Soy.

What Is Miso?

Miso is a smooth paste of cooked, mashed, salted, and fermented grains or legumes (typically edamame). Miso paste varies in sweetness, saltiness, and umami, or savoriness. The two most popular types are red and white miso. White is typically milder and sweeter, while red tends to be saltier, earthier.

How To Cook With Miso 

You can of course use miso to make miso soup, or you can experiment with mixing miso into soy sauce glazes for squash and other roasted vegetables. You can even incorporate it into marinades for barbecue! It’s the perfect complement to udon noodles, or in nabe (Japanese hot pot). Miso paste can be quite salty, so make sure to start out with a small portion and see how it flavors your dish.
