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.
Firstly, not only does it take minimal time to heat up and enjoy, it also only takes 10 minutes to prep. All you have to do is slice your chosen veggies, divide them into containers along with the vermicelli noodles and miso paste, and there you go – prep done!
