  • stove
  • chopping board and knives
  • large saucepan


  • 1 cup water (boiled)
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste (gluten free)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil or neutral oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves minced
  • 3 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • 150 grams shiitake mushrooms (5.5 oz) cut in half or left whole
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • ¾ - 1 teaspoon cooking salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 250 -300 grams quick-cook or pre-cooked protein (eg. small firm cubed tofu, pre-cooked shredded chicken)*
  • 120 -180 grams (4 to 6 oz) noodles of choice
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 4 nori sushi sheets roughly torn or sliced


  • Boil the water and pour over the miso in a glass measuring jug or a mug. Stir well until dissolved/mixed in.
  • Heat up a large saucepan on medium heat. Add the coconut oil and the garlic, stirring for a minute until fragrant. Add in the miso mixture, stock, salt, pepper and shiitake mushrooms. If using tofu, add this now.
  • Increase the heat to high and cook for 5 minutes to allow the liquid to reduce and the mushrooms to cook. At the same time, cook the noodles according to the packet instructions.
  • When ready to serve, add noodles to the bowl along with protein (if not using tofu) followed by the soup. Garnish with the red cabbage and torn nori sheets.


*or you could even use some mince/ground pork or chicken cooked in a separate frypan first
