Super Fast Super Noodles!

I adore Super Noodles!It is one of those things, that I love, that does not love me and is best not to mention in polite company! Maybe it is a hangover from "student day hangovers"! So instead of ingesting all those "fake-y" ingredients, that do weird things to you, this is what I do now when craving the soothing warmth of soupy noodles!

Get yourself some of this miso paste! (Available in most supermarkets World Foods Aisle.) It is a great store cupboard ingredient and can be used in many ways...such as creating marinades to jazz up fish or chicken, as a cup of soup, as a stock. It is one of those things like marmite, that is full of B12. This used to be thought of something that would make your "blood stronger"! It is a vitamin that is great for your nervous system!

I make up my miso and boil my noodles in it! Perfect stock. I then grate in a cube of fresh ginger, but you can add ground ginger or five spice. Grate in a clove of garlic. Yummy aromas (much better than supernoodles!)Then basically throw in anything you've got to hand or in the freezer! In my case sprouting brocolli and asparagus (steamed), beansprouts and soya beans and sweetcorn out of the freezer defrosted in microwave (gasp!)Done! Speedy lunch! Serve in a bowl and slurp up!Noodles+broth=warm comfort.

I didn't realise you could use miso soup mix like stock. Will definitely try this.
