Miso Curry Noodles

I adore miso. Its so versatile and adds that umami flavour we all crave. Its also a fermented food, which means it has amazing health benefits. If you can't eat soy, don't worry, there are other types of miso out there made from chickpeas or adzuki beans. You need quite a bit for this delicious noodle dish, so make sure you choose a yellow/light miso that is lower in sodium. I use a hot curry powder because I love spicy food, but feel free to use a mild one if you want. I used roasted zucchini because I love it, but you can throw in whatever veggies you wish. Likewise, I bought some sesame marinated tofu to use for protein, but you can use whatever protein you prefer.
