Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons miso paste
  • 2 Teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves fresh, ground garlic
  • 7 Ounces udon noodles
  • 1 Teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 medium-sized onion, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 stalk bok choy, sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 1/2 Pound ground pork
  • One-half 15-ounce can sweet corn, drained
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • 3 scallions, chopped finely, for garnish
  • Red pepper powder (optional)

Directions

In a small bowl, mix the miso paste, soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic. Set aside.

In a medium-sized pot, boil 4 cups of water and cook the udon, following the package directions.

Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat, then add the sesame oil. Sauté the onion and the bok choy until they are slightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pork and the corn, then keep sautéing until the pork is browned, about 4 minutes.

In the same pot, add 2 ½ cups of water, then bring everything to boil, about 4 minutes.

Remove the top layer of floating oils and bubbles from the pot, then add the miso mixture. Over medium-low heat, stir the soup lightly to ensure the miso mixture has dissolved. Add the butter, and stir.

Serve the udon noodles in a bowl, and add the vegetable miso soup on top. Sprinkle the sesame seeds, scallions, and hot pepper over the soup, if using.
