This simple shiitake mushroom noodle soup with miso and pak choi, lemon and ginger is a quick and easy supper for one. Clean, green, and ready in 15 minutes!
Here's a super-speedy weeknight supper for one: a deeply savoury miso broth, with udon noodles, pak choi, spring onions and shiitake mushrooms.
I can't claim to be part of the 'clean eating' movement, but I do find that clean is a really good description for food like this.... clear broth, a zing of ginger and lemon, bright green pak choi - this just has to be good for you, as well as deliciously filling.
I've had a bit of a hectic week, (playing violin in the orchestra pit for a musical every night, amongst other fun but time-consuming things!), and was in need of some quick supper ideas. This fit the bill perfectly last night, and was on the table 20 minutes after I first opened the fridge.
I've had this little jar of ready-made Miso paste in the cupboard for a while now, awaiting inspiration. Last week I got it out and left it on the worktop, knowing I would never remember to use it if it was out of sight and out of mind.
Cue noodles, shiitakes and pak choi from an internet shop and voila... a delicious bowl of noodles in 20 minutes flat!

- Spring onion
- Shiitake mushrooms
- Pak choi

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I've been in such a rut always making the same ten and this was such a nice fresh change. Me and my partner really liked it, and will definitely make again!" Phoebe
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Very good. I made it for my dinner on a day that I knew I would be tired by the time it came to cooking. I added silken extra firm tofu at the same time as the miso and it was delicious and very filling. Thanks for a great recipe that I will make again and use as a template for other variations = adding garlic and thinly sliced carrots comes to mind. Thanks for a great recipe!" Vivian
