This is a healthy alternative to Cup o’ Noodles or Top Ramen. Rice noodles are stewed in a savory garlic sesame sauce and mix of seasonal greens.
*Collard greens, spinach and swiss chard all work well with these versatile rice noodles.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook rice noodles according to package directions.
While noodles are cooking, mix ½ cup miso paste with the minced garlic and sesame seeds together in a small bowl.
Right before rice noodles have finished cooking, add the 4 cups chopped greens. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until greens begins to become tender.
Drain noodles in a colander. Toss noodles and greens in the miso garlic sauce, divide into bowls and enjoy! Serves 4
