Miso Pesto Noodle Bowls
One of my favorite days of the month is when my monthly Bon Appétit magazine arrives in the mail. I love flipping though and staring at all the gorgeous photos and book marking recipes for inspiration. I’ve never been the kind of cook who follows recipes to a T but I always love getting ideas from different cooking methods and flavor pairings. When I stumbled upon the recipe for ramen noodles with miso pesto I knew I had to give it a try. I gave it my own twist by using spiralized sweet potato noodles instead of ramen noodles. I added a soft boiled egg and harvested some fresh greens from the farm to include in the pesto. The end result was an unbelievably delicious meal bursting with fresh flavors. Feel free to play around here with your own twists. If you’re not into the vegetable noodles try udon, soba or rice noodles. You can bulk up your bowls with diced avocado, thinly sliced radishes and toasted peanuts. The magic here is in the pesto so if you follow anything here, it should be the measurements for the sauce!
Happy cooking everyone!
