The ramen burger was a bun made out of ramen noodles. Basically, it’s cooked ramen noodles that are refrigerated in a bun-sized ramekin for 15 minutes and then fried in olive oil. Japanese blogger and chef Keizo Shimamoto invented this and served it up at Smorgasburg (an outdoor food weekly festival) in Brookyln, causing Tweets galore and waiting in long lines.
When I saw the ramen noodle bun, I immediately thought – what a creative idea, but sadly unhealthy. Then, I thought to substitute spiralized sweet potato in for the “ramen” and voila – a spiralized bun! The spiralized bun is perfect to use with open-faced sandwiches and burgers. It’s also fun to use as a slice of bread – smear almond butter on top, add some bananas and honey and you have a nutritious, exciting and delicious breakfast!
