Grown-up Top Ramen: Udon Noodels and Vegetables

Udon Noodles with Vegetables

Quick and Easy Top Ramen for Grown-ups

We were coming back from an early evening photo shoot for the boys. Stephanie bought a deal on Living Social and we spent some time out at Arbor Hills Park in Plano. It was the typical rush from work, get caught in some traffic, and then come back home get the kids ready for bed and finally have a moment to make dinner.  Fortunately, I had a simple recipe from the {Custom Made} Life blog.

Preparing the vegetables

Cooking some sweet potato and carrots

Basically take a few vegetables, some udon (or soba) noodles, and make a broth.  People who do not cook can cook this. I promise.

Best part it’s really quite tasty and hit the spot after all of our evening running around and it only took 15 minutes to make.

Chickpea Miso

Really impressed with this chickpea based Miso concentrate

It was also the first time I used a chickpea based Miso concentrate from Whole Foods. It’s a bit pricey at $10 a jar but I have to say it really added a great flavor to the broth; though, I’m sure a package miso from the asian food aisle is fine too.
