This simple yet flavorful dish combines the creaminess of coconut milk and umami richness of miso is the backdrop of chewy moroheya noodles.
What is moroheya
Moroheya has been cultivated in Egypt since the ancient times and has been said to be the food of royalty due to its nutritional value. Harvested only twice a year, the leaves used in these noodles are from Thailand where the climate is perfect. I'm really glad that Green Noodle makes this magical plant noodles easily available to us.
This dish is inspired by the color green. We used kale, green noodles and scallions. Vitamins A, C, & K, calcium, potassium, and fiber can be found in green vegetables. The fusion of miso and coconut milk is my go to whenever I need to make something with a lot of flavor easily. Mushrooms simmering with this broth will surely be a tasty meal. Try sauteing anything and pour in some miso and coconut milk and you will instantly elevate your dish.
