With the weather still playing havoc outside, warming comfort food is the number one priority. One such quick and easy lunch option is miso noodle jars.
Miso paste, vegetables, seeds and protein are layered in a jar to create a nourishing and portable dish. Almost any combination of vegetables work, so this recipe is handy to use up those greens from the fridge that have been accidentally forgotten.
Here is the best part: to make a warming lunch, just add boiling water to the jar, let it stand for a couple of minutes, stir and it’s ready to eat.
Ingredients for 1
For the base:
1 tablespoon miso paste
1/2 vegetable stock cube, crumbled
2 tablespoons of warm water
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 tsp chilli oil (optional)
Any combination of vegetables and seeds
We used: ﬁnely chopped red cabbage, carrot ribbons, Omega seeds and pea shoots.
Cooked noodles or instant rice noodles.
To make the base, mix together the ingredients until it forms a smooth paste.
Pour the ﬂavour paste into the bottom of your jar (we recommend using a large sturdy clip top or Kilner style jar).
Put layers of your chosen noodles, vegetables and Munchy Seeds on top.
When you are ready to use it, boil a kettle, ﬁll the jar with water, put a lid on it and allow it to stand for a couple of minutes.
Either gently shake the jar whilst the lid is on, or remove the lid and give it a stir to distribute the miso ﬂavour.
Enjoy whilst it’s still warm.
Happy munching guys!
