Nifty Little Noodle Bowl

I loved Ramen Noodles as a kid. Sadly, my puppy love ended after finding out that those .99 cent meals were pretty much made of poison. But then when I grew up Pho came into my life and swept me off my feet.

Noodle bowls have become a go-to lunch option for me lately. For a little more than the time it takes to make a cup of tea, I can have a warm and flavor full noodle bowl.


Brown Rice Noodles

Miso Broth

1 Clove of Garlic minced (or powder to taste)

Dashi Powder

Korean Red Pepper Flakes

Chili Powder


Pre-cooked shrimp (thawed)

Green Onion

Bring 1 cup of miso broth, one cup of water, and 1-2 teaspoons of the Dashi Powder. Dashi is basically the bullion or base that makes miso or clear broths. Doing this adds depth to the miso flavor or what is known as umami.

While that’s coming to a boil add the noodles, shrimp, minced garlic, Korean red pepper flakes, and cilantro to a bowl.

Pour the boiling broth into the bowl, cover, and steep for a little more than 5 minutes or until the noodles are tender.

And there you have a more grown-up and nifty little noodle bowl.

Here’s a tip: use mason jars to prep your noodle bowls ahead of time. Use a little more Dashi, along with the other dry ingredients. Then when your ready, boil some water, pour, & steep. Great for weekly meal prep!
