Chicken, miso and tamarind noodle soup

    30 min

    Love in a bowl...well I think so! My version of chicken miso isn't taken on any classic Japanese version, it my take on it, using different flavours from around Asia. Instead of using chicken why not have beef instead or pork, or seafood. Also use up any vegetables that you have left over. This recipe is enough for 1 really hungry person or for 2 smaller portions.
