I was having one of those days, where my craving for creamy noodles collided with my craving for asian food. So I decided to let them! And guess what, it turned out like it was ment to be and so these creamy miso and mushroom soba noodles were born.
If you've had a creamy miso ramen before and you liked it, you will love this! It's creamy from the coconut milk, earthy and "meaty" from the mushrooms and savory, salty with a hint of sweetness from white miso. And since miso is made from fermented soy beans, it's also a gift for your gut!
