Believe it or not, my love for ramen is infinite. This is something I make regularly because there’s nothing better than noodles swimming in homemade broth. Just a bowl of noodle soup with lots of feel-good ingredients. Quick, nourishing comfort food.
This miso and peanut butter flavor combo is made pure by accident, it turned out as a very luscious recipe and I had no choice but to share it with you.
After cooking the broth I added shredded chicken and soba noodles to the bowls, poured the hot broth with spinach and shiitakes, served it with chili flakes and toasted peanuts.
Sometimes a ramen fix is just the right thing, and this happy accident version hits the spot. The addition of miso, peanut butter and runny egg yolks are the key to make it feel more special and interesting, just try it out!
- 180 g ramen or soba noodles
- 100 g chicken breast fillet
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon red curry paste
- 1 tablespoon miso
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 500 ml homemade chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 4 shiitake mushrooms, cut into slices
- 100 g spinach

Heat the vegetable oil in a pot, cook the garlic and shallot over low heat, until soft. Add ginger, stir and pour the broth. Add chicken fillet, red curry paste, soy sauce, oyster and fish sauce. Increase the heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
Remove the chicken, add shiitake, spinach, peanut butter and miso, cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
In the meantime, shred the chicken with two forks.
Cook ramen noodles according to the instructions in salted water. Then transfer into bowls, pour the broth. Top with shredded chicken and soft-boiled eggs. Sprinkle with chives, peanuts and chili flakes. Enjoy!
There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of Ramen. I could eat this all year round for all my meals. Looks so stunning. Loved it. And those eggs look just perfect.
Thank you Esha! So happy you love it as much as I do
I love peanut butter in noodle dishes but haven’t tried it with miso yet! This dish looks so tempting though – I’ll have to try it soon.
Hope you enjoy it, thanks Corina!
I adore ramen at this looks amazing – love the addition of peanut butter! Pinned!
Thank you Nickki!
Miso is such a fantastic ingredient. I use it a lot in soups, but haven’t been as adventurous with it as I keep telling myself I should be. Those eggs are just something else – how did you get them to look so perfect? I do love your photos. I’m always wowed by them whenever I visit your blog.
Wow, thank you so much for your kind words. I love to experiment with flavors and this is how this dish came by accident (:
the eggs are 5 min soft boiled, then I mostly just tear them apart 🙂
Such a comforting bowl of goodness.. love the bowl packed with nutritients so filling. Peanut butter must have added a nutty flavour to the delicious soup!!
