During the week, cooking dinner has to involve something quick and simple that isn’t going to tie me to the kitchen for hours on end, so this 30 minute noodle dish is a life saver as well as being nutritious and delicious.
Miso is a great savoury addition to Asian dishes and works beautifully with the tahini and tempeh in this dish.
Both of these contain good amounts of probiotics that help to support our gut bacteria and with the addition of the veggies, this dish packs quite the nutritional punch.
Using simple ingredients, this dish is easy to throw together and versatile as you can easily use different protein sources such as meat or fish.
We love to use noodles but feel free to add rice or what ever you have to hand as this works well even as a salad minus the sauce haha.
