Delicious ramen noodles in a miso broth with silken tofu and fresh vegetable toppings. Finished with shallots and sesame seeds.
1. Cook noodles in a saucepan of boiling water according to packet instructions until al dente. Drain under cold water and set aside.

2. Slice spring onions. Add to a second saucepan over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil (see notes). Add miso paste and garnish along with 1 crumbled stock cube and 1.5L water. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Trim and slice Asian greens into 3cm pieces. Slice capsicum and remove corn from cob. Set aside.

4. Dice tofu. Add to miso broth and simmer for 3 minutes until warmed through. Take off heat.

5. Heat a frypan over medium heat with 1/2 tbsp oil. Add asian greens and cook for 1-2 minutes until just wilted. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Divide noodles, tofu and broth among bowls. Top with sautéed greens and fresh toppings. Garnish with fried shallots, sesame seeds and chilli flakes to taste.

Use sesame oil to add extra richness and flavour to the broth.
Season the broth with soy sauce or tamari for extra flavour.
