Spicy Miso Chashu Ramen

Crunchy and appealing, bean sprouts are a crowd favorite for their low-calorie count, reasonable price, and abundance. In Japanese, we call bean sprouts “もやし (Moyashi).” Bean sprouts are commonly used as miso ramen toppings, adding a crunchy delight to your bowl of ramen. The first person to use bean sprouts as a topping was Morito Omiya, the inventor of Sapporo Miso Ramen. Since then, bean sprouts are widely recognized as a typical ingredient in Sapporo Miso Ramen. In fact, the bean sprouts used in Sapporo Miso Ramen are stir-fried bean sprouts. For those short on time, we prepared a simple recipe that requires only a microwave oven. All you have to do is microwave some bean sprouts to steam them and add some condiments for a light, but textured topping to our miso ramen noodles!
