is life a recipe

Kid’s Japanese Miso soup, slightly off tradition -but they’ll eat it!


I can’t even think if my two have had this somewhere in the world before or if indeed I did just make it up.


Hey who cares my two kids wolfed this down, and I said it was Japanese. Enough said – it’s good for them, it was very tasty, it is simple to make, and delivered two absolutely empty bowls – it could be Dutch for all I care.

To make 2 large kids portions you will need;

  • 3 heaped tablespoons of miso paste
  • 1 pack udon noodles
  • 1 litre water
  • 3 or 4 hot dog sausages sliced in to half inch lengths
  • 3 finely sliced green tops of salad/Spring onions for garnish
  • 2 handfuls of bonito flakes (one per bowl) also for garnish

Another blink and you will certainly miss this folks.

Take a large pot and add the water. Add in the miso paste and bring to boil, stirring occasionally.

Add in the udon noodles and hot dog slices and simmer until all are cooked and warmed through.

Serve half in to each bowl, sprinkle atop the handful of bonito flakes and Spring onions – and stand back for the feeding frenzy!
