Lime Tama Miso Sauce for Noodles

I love this recipe, it’s just so versatile. Sometimes I add charred Mackerel, sometimes an egg or even both. But It’s also so delicious piled high with green vegetables, the combinations are endless. The best way? With ALL the toppings….

Feel free to switch the noodles out for Ramen, Udon or Soba, they each add their own flavour and chew factor
