Confession: I watch a lot of YouTube. Like A LOT and one of my many favourite channels is Bon Appetit. The test kitchen hosts are funny, inspiring, honest and are often so good at presenting that I’ve tried many new-to-me recipes from the channel.
A recently released video titled Andy Makes Ramen Two Ways really piqued my interest and I just had to click through. As a big fan of all forms of noodle and always looking for more variety this ended up being a really tasty choice!
The two recipes featured were Ginger Scallion Ramen Noodles and Ramen Noodles with Miso Pesto. After watching the video, I was only really interested in the latter of the two mostly because I didn’t want to do all the chopping of the scallions for the first one...
This dish was so good I made it twice over a weekend! The second time I added a poached egg for some extra saucy goodness since I tried using a food processor instead of my p.o.s. blender which resulted in a chunky sauce... and was still really fricken good. It's quick to put together and very Insta-worth :)
The only thing I would change about this recipe is the title since pesto literally means to pound and this is a blended sauce... so I'm calling it Ramen with Spinach Miso sauce instead (hence the title of this post...). Whatever title you use it’s delicious and you should totally make it too!
Give this a go and you will impress your taste buds for sure :)
