Ramen noodle buns are all the rage now. I’m sure they are delicious, but not so healthy. It seems like every food blog has some version of this burger/bun combo. Here's mine. This sweet potato noodle bun is the answer to the health-conscious-foodie’s desire to hop on the ramen bandwagon. This is genius! I wish I could give credit to the bun’s original creator, but the recipe for these buns seems to be showing up in different forms everywhere. Here’s my version — they are easy to make, taste great with the burgers, and look beautiful. Be forewarned… this is one deliciously messy burger… —sisaaacs1
What You'll Need
medium sweet potatoes, spiralized
extra-virgin olive oil, divided
sea salt and black pepper to taste
grass-fed beef burgers, grilled
thick tomato slices
sprouts (I used bok choy sprouts)
Heat 1-Tbs oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add spiralized sweet potatoes, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss gently with tongs until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool slightly. Stir in egg until noodles are coated.
Put spirals into 4 ramekins, until they are about halfway filled. Press a piece of parchment paper on top of spirals in each ramekin. Use a weight or a can to press down on the spirals (see photo above). Place the ramekins in the fridge until you are ready to cook. These buns are best served immediately, so don’t cook them too early or they won’t retain their crispness (Oh, they will still be delicious, but they will be even messier to eat!).
Heat 2-Tbs oil in same skillet. Place each ramekin upside down in the skillet and tap on the bottom until the bun comes out. Cook until browned on bottom, about 4 or 5 minutes. Carefully flip with spatula and cook until browned and crisp on second side.
Place one bun on each plate. Top with a burger, tomato slice, guacamole and sprouts. Place the remaining bun on top of the pile. Get out your napkins and enjoy!
