Why you should meal prep this recipe

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! 

Secondly, 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 which will have you excited for your next meal after finishing a serving. 

Thirdly, this noodle bowl recipe is highly adaptable. Get creative with your veggies, aromatics and toppings. I’m so glad tik tok inspired me to create this recipe!

Healthy instant noodles in meal prep containers

Ingredients

Vermicelli Noodles

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. 

Miso Paste

The powerhouse of flavour,  that is the backbone to this noodle bowl recipe. 

Mushrooms 

I love how thinly sliced mushrooms can cook so quickly whilst absorbing so much of the flavour of the broth, making them the perfect addition to these healthy noodles. 

Pak Choi 

The perfect veg for most ramen inspired recipes. It’s vibrant, flavourful and packed with nutrients. 

Spring Onion 

As an aromatic and also a crunchy garnish. This adds both texture and flavour. 

Lime Juice 

You can use lime juice or rice wine vinegar to add some acidity, which brightens the dish.

Soy Sauce

An essential umami punch that is readily available in most of our cupboards!

Beef Stock/ Chicken Stock/ Vegetable Stock 

To flavour the broth.
