  • ¼ tsp chili flakes

  • 8 oz. Soba noodles
  • 15 g white miso paste
  • 15 ml coconut oil
  • 7.5 g ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 g chili flakes
  • 2.5 g turmeric
  • 1 cup kale, stems removed
  • 1 carrot, cut into ribbons
  • 15 ml soy sauce
  • 5 g sesame oil
  • 5 g sesame seeds
  • Salt + pepper


  • Bring a medium pot of unsalted water up to a boil. De-stem kale, peel carrot into ribbons using a vegetable peeler and mince garlic and ginger.
  • In a separate pan, heat coconut oil until shimmering. Add the ginger and garlic and 1 tsp salt, sauté until lightly golden 2-3 minutes. Add the chilli flakes and turmeric and miso paste and cook for 30 seconds ore or until fragrant.
  • Drop soba noodles into boiling water and stir so they do not stick. Boil as indicated on the package, usually 5-8 minutes or until tender. When done, drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Add kale and carrot ribbons to ginger and spice mixture, mix. Turn heat to low and cover until slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame seeds. Toss well.
  • Add noodles to bowls, top with kale carrot mixture and drizzle with sesame oil. Serve.


White miso paste is a traditional Japanese cooking ingredient produced by fermenting soy beans, barley or rice with a specialized fungus. It’s commonly used in spreads, sauces and soup stocks for a rich, savory flavor.

It can be found in many different varieties, with white being the lightest and having the most delicate flavor. Miso paste will last almost indefinitely in the fridge and is great in brothy soups and simple sauces. It can usually be found in the refrigerated section of most markets.
