I am hungry - now! ... Easy miso stir-fry

Miso stir fry
It's been a busy day today, so when it got to 6pm I was absolutely starving and needed food quickly. And luckily I already had this dish in mind - super fast, tasty and healthy: stir-fry vegetables, salmon, rice and miso soup.  The miso broth came from an instant sachet from our local health food shop - all natural ingredients, so I didn't mind using it (anyway, I wouldn't even know where to start making miso soup from scratch).

This was done in minutes (thanks to the cooked brown rice I already had) - you could also easily use quick cook noodles to make this satisfying dish.  I felt really full afterwards (in a good way) and will definitely make this again.  My kind of fast food!

Miso stir-fry (serves 1)

Ingredients (feel free to change these according to what you have):
  • a little oil (sesame oil works great but any other will be fine)
  • a clove of garlic
  • a small piece of fresh ginger
  • a small piece of fresh chilli
  • a selection of vegetables cut into strips/pieces (I used broccoli, green bell pepper, mushrooms, carrot)
  • one skinless salmon filet (ca. 100g) - you can replace this with chicken or other meat, tofu or leave it out completely
  • 1 serving of cooked rice (or noodles if you prefer)
  • 1 single serving sachet of instant miso soup
  • some hot water
  • a dash of soy sauce

  1. Heat the oil in a wok and once hot, add the salmon (if using), ginger, chilli and garlic as well as the vegetables.
  2. Stir-fry for a few minutes, then add the cooked rice to heat through.
  3. Sprinkle on the instant miso soup and add enough hot water from the kettle to make the broth (depending on how liquid you'd like it).
  4. Leave to simmer for a couple of minutes, then serve in a large bowl with a dash of soy sauce.
