These healthy noodles are so flavourful with minimal ingredients, thanks to the umami-packed miso paste. A dollop of miso paste per serving ignites a powerful salty richness throughout the broth taking only 10 minutes to meal prep and will have you excited for your next meal after finishing a serving.
There are so many reasons to try this noodle bowl recipe. We all know that meal prepping is such a great way to stay healthy and on track and this recipe allows us to do that, whilst having so many additional bonuses.

The vermicelli noodles are the secret to making this recipe so quick and easy. Just add hot water and pop in the microwave for 2 minutes and boom – healthy instant noodles are made.
The powerhouse of flavour, that is the backbone to this noodle bowl recipe. You could use other soy sauce or peanut based dressing, but the miso paste works well for this recipe.
Mushrooms/Pak Choi and Spring Onions
I love how thinly sliced mushrooms and pak choi can cook so quickly whilst absorbing so much of the flavour of the broth, making them the perfect addition to these healthy noodles. The spring onions add an aromatic and also a crunchy garnish.
You can use lime juice or rice wine vinegar to add some acidity, which brightens the dish.
See the recipe card for the full ingredients list and quantities.

I used rice noodles for this recipe, but whole grain noodles, such as whole wheat, brown rice, or soba noodles, are healthier options as they retain more nutrients and fibre compared to refined white noodles.
To make your noodle bowls balanced and nutritious, add variety of colorful vegetables and for additional protein add tofu, chicken or prawns.
You can add a wide range of vegetables to your noodle bowls suc as sliced bell peppers, broccoli florets, peas, grated carrots, cabbage, spinach and bean sprouts.
I love the miso dressing added to these bowls, but you can easily adapt the bowls and add teriyaki sauce, sesame ginger dressing, peanut sauce or soy sauce-based marinades,
