🍜 Ramen Noodles

These are always a hit and soak up that miso sauce nicely. Plus, they’re quick to cook, which keeps this dish firmly in the “fast food” category – the good kind, of course.

🍜 Soba Noodles

Made from buckwheat, soba noodles bring a unique flavor and are great if you’re looking for something a bit different and gluten-free. They’re awesome at holding onto that spicy miso sauce.

🍜 Udon Noodles

Thicker and chewier, udon noodles add a fun texture to the mix. They work well with the hearty miso sauce, so each bite is satisfyingly umami rich.

🍜 Glass Noodles

Made from mung beans, these translucent noodles offer a delightful texture contrast and soak up sauces nicely. It makes every bite a flavorful experience.

🍜 Udon noodles, glass noodles, ramen noodles, or soba noodles – Feel free to experiment with different types of noodles. Udon noodles give you a chewy texture, while glass noodles offer a unique, slippery bite. Ramen noodles are always a comforting choice, and soba noodles bring their own nutty flavor to the party.

🍜 Broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, green onions, or sliced carrots – Don’t shy away from adding a rainbow of veggies to your dish. Broccoli and shiitake mushrooms can be sautéed and added for an extra umami punch. Green onions and sliced carrots add color and crunch, making your bowl both beautiful and nutritious.

🍜 Tofu or tempeh cubes – For those looking for a protein kick, tofu or tempeh cubes can be a great addition. Marinate them in a bit of soy sauce and toasted sesame oil before pan-frying for a crispy outside and a soft inside.

🍜 Red miso paste or yellow miso  Don’t have white miso? Try using red miso paste or yellow miso for a different depth of flavor. Each type brings its own character to your bowl, from sweet and mild to rich and savory.

🍜 Peanut butter or peanut sauce – Get creative with your sauce. Mix in a tablespoon of peanut butter or peanut sauce for a creamy, nutty dimension.
