If you watch the news, live in NYC, follow foodie Twitters or Instagrams, and don’t generally live in a box, you have heard of the shoyu ramen burger. If not, let me explain, because it’s “so hot right now.” Photo courtesy of GoRamen.com:

The ramen burger is 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 in Brookyln, causing Tweets galore and waiting in long lines. This latest food trend is being called the newest cronut! If you don’t know what a cronut is, I suggest you Google it….. and have fun trying to get one.

When I saw the ramen noodle bun, I immediately thought – what a creative idea, but how unhealthy. Ramen noodles generally are marketed towards college students, because they are super easy to make, flavorful, cheap, and filling. Too bad they have the nutritional value of cardboard. Why not fry them up and mold them into a bun? It’s probably absolutely delicious, and if I had the patience, I’d wait on that line.

My train of thought:

Wow, that looks delicious.
How creative.
I wish I thought of that.
When’s Smorgasburg?
Is it worth it to wait in line?
Nah, it’s probably not that good. *sour grapes*
Yea, plus it’s super unhealthy. *more sour grapes*
I’m healthy.
I run a blog about ways to eat healthy.
I own a spiralizer.
My blog is about spiralizing.
OMG I’m going to Inspiralize this ramen burger.
But I totally have to try the ramen burger, I mean…. for research purposes.

I ran to the kitchen, found this video by Yumsugar on how to make a ramen burger, spiralized a sweet potato, made & baked a quick turkey burger, grilled some onions, tomatoes, and made an avocado & goat cheese spread. I assembled it, tasted it, cried, licked my fingers, and then redid the whole process and photographed the final product. Full recipe and tutorial coming soon.

FYI: The spiralized sweet potato noodles are perfect as a burger bun, because they had a hint of sweetness that’s just duh-vine.

Alas, I present you – The Spiralized Burger with Grilled Tomato, Onion and Avocado-Goat Cheese Spread

Where's the recipe for the Spiralized Burger with Grilled Tomato, Onion and Avocado-Goat Cheese Spread? I saw the video for the Ramen Burger, but no recipe for the spiralized zucchini burger. thanks!

Where is the recipe?
Becky says:
Can you make thes same types of bus with spaghetti squash? I know that's not exactly what you do, since nothing gets spiralized, but have you tried it?
Ali Maffucci says:
No, you can't. If you add in flour, it is possible!
Janet Paula says:
Why can't I find a written version of your spiralized bun. I saw the video and it is quite easy. But, in case I want to double the recipe in the future, it would be nice to know how many eggs to use for how many pounds. Thanks.
