Ramen with chicken and tofu is something I’ve tried before, but of course there are many ways to combine these ingredients. Also there are a lot of ways to add flavour. You can also tailor the recipe to suit your palate.

I know some people won’t want much spice at all while others love it. So you can tweak the end result to whatever you prefer. Also offer extra hot sauce at the table – you know some people can’t resist adding a little more to this already spicy tahini recipe!

What Do You Need for this Ramen Recipe?

This soup is based on chicken, tofu and broth. Those are very popular ingredients in Asian cuisine. What makes it really stand out though is the seasonings that go into it.

Sesame oil, red miso paste and tahini paste flavour the soup. And then you add Sriracha and chilli oil in there. For the toppings, jalapeno offers a third heat source, while a boiled egg is also a perfect complement.

Bok choy and carrot are the vegetables I like in this soup. These could be replaced with other veggies if you prefer. Mushrooms would work (enoki mushrooms would be good here and they cook fast) or napa cabbage.

Beansprouts would also be yummy if you have some to use up. However you make it, this spicy tahini miso ramen is just perfect!

Spicy Tahini Recipe: Tips for Making It

There are three stages to this recipe. So those are the chicken, the soup and then the toppings. You don’t have to juggle lots of pans at once though. You can take your time making this tasty soup. Once you have prepared all the ingredients, the rest of the recipe is easy to follow.

The first thing to do is cooking the chicken. After that you will make the soup in the same pan. The noodles and egg can go in separate pans. After everything is done, you can ladle the soup into bowls and top it with the tasty toppings.

This ramen recipe has a number of possible variations, just like any other soup. The soft-boiled egg can be replaced with medium or hard-boiled if that’s more your thing.

If you want to make it vegetarian, you can omit the chicken and just use extra tofu. For a vegan spicy tahini miso ramen, do the same and also omit the egg.

What is Red Miso Paste?

This is one of the key components in spicy tahini miso ramen. And this spicy tahini recipe relies on it for a long of the flavour. Miso is a Japanese seasoning made of fermented soybeans, salt and koji, a type of fungus.

This thick paste can be added to soups and sauces. In addition, miso is used in some pickled vegetables recipes. Miso is rich in protein and vitamins. It’s typically salty but different kinds have sweet, fruity or savoury tastes.

Red miso is reddish brown in colour. It adds a great flavour to this ramen with chicken and tofu. Red miso is aged for longer than white miso, typically 3 to 12 months. The longer it ages, the darker it becomes. It is richer in flavour than the white one. I always look for a gluten free version, since I am celiac.

And What is Tahini Exactly?

Tahini is basically ground sesame seeds. They can be hulled or not hulled, raw or roasted. The word ‘tahini’ is Arabic for ground sesame seeds. It adds an oriental nutty taste to this ramen recipe.

This ramen with chicken and tofu dish is filling enough to be a standalone meal rather than an appetizer. Plain miso soup with a few tofu cubes can accompany a meal as an appetizer or even a drink. This spicy tahini recipe however is satisfying even served by itself.
