From stove top to table top in under 10 minutes, you’ll love this speedy One-Pot Spiralized Zucchini Noodle Miso Soup!

 

Well, it’s official: we’ve successfully eaten our way through nearly everything in the house!

In preparation for this week’s move, we have nothing more than a few vegetables (four, to be exact), some fresh fruit (perfect for snacking!), and several pantry essentials left. Huzzah!

This soup, inspired by last week’s impromptu miso noodle bowl, was the perfect use for the lone zucchini sitting in my crisper. Though I normally beeline for rice noodles, zucchini noodles are equally gluten-free with the added bonus of dashing calories and upping my veggie count for the day.

Aside from being oh so healthy, they’re also pretty darn tasty, super speedy to prepare, and don’t require any soaking or cooking like traditional noodles.

That, folks, is a win-win-win-win.

Maybe I missed a win there. There should be WAY more wins.

  • VEGAN CHEFS: There should be a few vegan versions of miso soup on the market, but it’s super easy to make your own at home! Simple Vegan Blog has a deliciously speedy vegan miso soup recipe that will make the perfect base for this veg-friendly noodle bowl!
  • T-REX CHEFS: Feel free to use chicken broth and even add some chicken to the mix if you’d like!

I had a really hard time finding miso paste at my local grocery stores and opted for dried instant miso soup mix packets to make my miso broth. If you can find the paste, there’s a really detailed from-scratch miso soup recipe on The Kitchn. Feel free to use that as the base for this soup as well! Whichever you prefer will be great!

Noodle bowls are ridiculously easy to customize based on personal preference and/or ingredients available, so feel free to experiment! If you’re not lucky enough to have a fresh zucchini handy you can easily whip this soup up with rice noodles, soba noodles, or even ramen!

As for the veggies – use your favorites! Bonus points if you stick to seasonal fare. Jalapeños are a super popular addition to noodle bowls as is bok choy. Cilantro and bean sprouts make fabulous toppings too! Seriously – anything goes! Have fun with it!

Deeeeelicious! Paul and I devoured our bowls in record time and were pretty disappointed that we didn’t have enough ingredients to make more before the move. This will definitely be a repeat occurrence around here. Feel free to double the recipe right off the bat! I’m confident this tasty soup will bowl you over!

confession: I may or may not have had Salt-N-Peppa stuck in my head the entire time I was photographing/eating this soup.

Let’s talk about zoodles baby; Let’s talk about you. and. me. Let’s talk about how they’re the most amazing noodles that can be!

Let’s also talk about how I’ve lost my damn mind. Yowza! At least you guys still love me despite it. Right?
