Looking for a super cosy soup that’s actually filling and that you can bring to the office? You need to try these delicious instant noodles. They are so easy to make, and because zero cooking is required, you can put them together in less than 20 minutes. To make them super flavoursome, we’ve created a tahini and miso-based sauce, which packs so much flavour and turns into a creamy broth once you add water. It’s so convenient, nourishing and perfect for a cosy day!

Servings 4


  • 4 servings vermicelli rice noodles
  • 4 cups shredded veggies (cabbage, carrots, Pak Choy, mushrooms)
  • 2 cups unshelled edamame
  • 200 g marinated tofu (teriyaki preferred)
  • 1 spring onion, diced
  • 4 tbsp kimchi (optional)
  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp white miso paste
  • 4 tsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup (or other sweeteners)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder or 1 tbsp mushroom powder
  • 1 tbsp Gochujang (or hot sauce or chili flakes to taste)
  • 4 tbsp soy milk


  • Add the tahini, miso, tamari, agave, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, vegetable stock powder, Gochujang and soy milk in a blender and process until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, mince the garlic and ginger finely and combine with all the ingredients in a bowl, using a little hot water if needed.
  • Prepare the vegetables: grate the carrot, shred the Pak Choy and cabbage, dice the mushrooms and spring onions thinly, and cut the tofu into small cubes. The edamame can be added frozen directly.
  • To a Tupperware, add the sauce, noodles, vegetables, tofu, and edamame. When you’re ready to eat, let it rest for 10 minutes at room temperature, then cover with boiling water and let it sit covered for 10 minutes.
  • Stir well, add kimchi if using, and enjoy your instant noodles.
