Spicy Miso Pork Ramen with Zucchini Noodles
There’s nothing like a piping hot bowl of ramen, but I always am left feel overstuffed afterwards – it’s hard not to savor every last slurp! This traditional Japanese dish uses wheat noodles served in a broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as meat or veggies, like scallions. This version uses ground pork for an easy, tasty protein source – and is topped with lots of crunchy scallions and red pepper flakes for a spicy kick!
Zucchini noodles are so easy to use as a replacement for any Asian noodle in noodle dishes. It absorbs the flavor of the broth, cooks perfectly al dente, and keeps its shape in a soup. You won’t believe you’re not eaten regular ramen, the consistency is exactly the same.
A crumbled pork sausage or sliced pork tenderloin would be a nice tasty spin on this bowl, or if you don’t like pork altogether, you could use ground chicken or seafood. And if are vegetarian, try topping with some edamame and a soft boiled egg! A drizzle of sriracha goes a long way here, too.
How to reheat zoodle ramen
- Since zucchini noodles release moisture, it can water down the broth of this soup. When reheating, I recommend adding an extra couple teaspoons of soy sauce to add saltiness and flavor back into the noodle dish.
- Reheat in a pot on the stovetop – bring to a boil and let simmer for a minute until heated through.
