A comforting bowl of spicy mushroom miso ramen

Mushrooms + Fuji Family = LOVE  and this week I’m getting the chance to go head to head with bloggers from Canada and Australia in a mushroom battle.  Did you know that this month is National Mushroom Month here in the U.S.?  To celebrate, last week kicked off the second annual Mushroom Masters, an international 4 week long competition between teams made up of 4 bloggers from the US, Canada, and Australia.

Mushroom Masters

Each week one blogger from each country is taking on a mushroom themed meal.  Last week was Breakfast and the US was victorious, with Tracy’s (Shutterbean) amazing Caramelized Mushroom & Shallot Bruschetta.  This week it’s all about Lunch, and I’m hoping that my recipe will bring home another win for Team USA!

Bowl of Spicy Mushroom Miso Ramen

I cooked up a spicy mushroom miso ramen.  This ramen is lighter than the traditional bowl of Japanese ramen, and vegetarian, for all of my veg friends out there!  It may be lighter, but it’s not light on flavor.  The soup is made with a mushroom stock and is full of sauteed crimini mushrooms and garlic to go along with the slightly chewy noodles.  It makes a fantastic lunch, because it is quick to make, healthy, filling (thanks to the protein rich mushrooms and miso paste), and total comfort food!  A fabulous way to fuel your body for second half of the day!

For Team USA to bring home another win, you need to vote!  (Just a simple one time click to show your support!)

You can get the recipe here.

Thank you so much for your support!! GO MUSHROOMS!!

You know, whenever I make ramen it always turns out exactly the same. I need to follow a recipe like this and break out of my noodle routine. GREG

The only thing that can compete with my love for ramen is mushrooms. Looking like a win for me either way. I voted and have my pom poms at the ready.
