I love making ‘take to work’ lunches for Hamish that are interesting, delicious and satisfying and these noodles are a winner!
You layer all the ingredients in your jar, then add boiling water to cook the noodles and prawns, wait 3 minutes, then eat. SO GOOD!
At the international section of your supermarket you will find the miso soup pouches, or you can buy a big jar of miso paste as well. You will find the ginger and noodles there too.
3 Minute Noodle Jar with Prawns, Miso & Sweetcorn
- 150 grams Prawns, defrosted, heads and tails removed
- 2 tbsp Soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Pickled ginger, sliced
- 1/2 cup Canned sweetcorn, drained
- 1 Shallot, finely sliced
- 1 packet Udon noodles
- 1 packet Instant Miso soup
- 1/2 tsp Powdered stock, I used vegetable
- 2 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce
- Garnish – cherry tomato, sesame seeds & coriander
In your jar, place your flavourings first – soy, ginger, sweet chilli, miso, powdered stock & shallots, mix to combine.
Then corn on top, then the noodles, and the prawns. You are done! This goes to work, along with the garnish.
When you are ready to eat, top with boiling water, put the lid on loosely on the jar. Leave for 3 minutes, stir, garnish and eat!
Experiment with different styles and flavours, try cooked chicken with honey & Soy, or tofu with curry flavours.
Remember to let your jar come up to room temperature before adding the boiling water or it will crack.
I used a 3 cup capacity jar for this large serve size
You could sub root ginger for pickled
