Broccoli and Orange Miso Pasta – the bold flavor of miso lightened up with fresh orange zest and juice, tossed with the Asian flavors you love, healthy veggies, and whole wheat pasta.
Hiiiiii. Are you back for the noodles? I always come back for the noodles. Isn’t that why we’re friends after all?
You don’t even have to feel guilty about these noodles. That is, if you ever feel guilty about eating noodles. Although really my stance on the whole guilt for noodles thing is that 100% of the time you should feel no shame/guilt/negativity about noodles in your life. But if for some reason you do, you no longer need to.
BTW – how many times can I say NOODLES in this post?!
Broccoli and Orange Miso Pasta gives you that healthy you deserve, and the carb fix you deserve even more. Let’s examine a little closer. You’ve got:
- Whole wheat noodles
- A whole lot of flavor boosters
- MISO PASTE
Um, hold the phone. Miso? You may be asking out loud right now. Yes, miso! I was inspired by Liz over at Pumpkin and Peanut Butter after I tried her Green Goddess Miso Noodle Soup and decided to venture a little further out into the miso world.
Check out Liz’s post to read all about the benefits of miso ^^^ some include: improved digestion health, a strengthened immune system, high antioxidants, lots of vitamin B12, and it’s a complete protein since it contains all the essential amino acids! How could you not want to try this delicious pasta after learning all of that?
If you’ve never had miso before (a newbie like me!) this is the miso paste I used, and found it in my local grocery store. It was also much cheaper there.
Back to being inspired. Inspired I was. Since I am basically the biggest fan of pasta IN THE WORLD (ok, maybe that is an exaggeration), I knew I needed to get it in my pasta bowl ASAP. Combine all of those delish healthy ingredients mentioned before, whisk together a little soy sauce, orange juice, and orange zest, plus the miso of course, and you’ve got yourself one tasty meal.
And how can you resist topping any of your Asian-inspired dishes off with scallions and sesame seeds?
