- Mix miso and tahini and thin with hot water to make a paste.
- Layer all ingredients except garnishes in a 750ml capacity or larger jar in the order listed. Keep garnish ingredients in a separate container.
- When ready to eat, open the jar, fill with boiling water and close and seal the lid. Leave to soak for 2 minutes.
- Open jar, stir noodles well and tip into a bowl if desired. Top with sesame oil, spring onions, sesame seeds and sliced seaweed.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free noodles and check miso is gluten free.
- Use ‘shelf-fresh’ noodles, which are precooked and just need to be heated by pouring over boiling water. Break up with a fork before adding to the jar.
- You could also use noodles from instant noodle packs, but check the labels on these — some contain palm oil, which makes them high in saturated fat.
- Or use noodles you’ve precooked. Run them under cold water before packing in the jar.
