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

Shiitake Mushroom Noodle Soup with miso
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 spring onion finely sliced
- 75 g fresh shiitake mushrooms halved or thickly sliced
- 1 tsp ginger purée (or grated fresh ginger)
- 1 head pak choi
- 1 tbsp miso paste
- 600 ml boiling water
- 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
- 1 bundle c.85g noodles (I used flat udon noodles, and soba would also work well here)
- juice of half a lemon
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the spring onion and mushrooms. Fry gently for 2-3 minutes until softened.
- Meanwhile, separate the green leaves from the white stalks of the pak choi. Slice the stalks into 1cm pieces and add to the pan along with the ginger, frying for a further minute until starting to soften.
- Add the boiling water and stock powder to the pan. Bring to the boil, then add the noodles and cook for 5-6 minutes until tender.
- Finely slice the green tops of the pak choi.
- Once the noodles are tender, add the pak choi leaves and miso paste to the pan, and simmer gently for a minute or two.
- Pour into a bowl, squeeze over the lemon juice, and eat immediately!
