Garlic Noodles with Miso Butter

Garlic Noodles Miso Butter Recipe

This is a variation of one of the most popular recipes from my cookbook (Todd & Diane posted the recipe for Garlic Butter Noodles) and (Garlic Scallion Noodles).

I’ve one-upped the recipe by adding in a spoonful of miso paste and throwing in fresh mushrooms, which is like upgrading from (okay, I just deleted a lame analogy of something related to stereos….too doiky, too predicable….deerrrrrr….)

Anyways, the miso paste, even just just a spoonful of it, melted into butter gives the entire dish richness (without adding meat!) I’ve created this recipe for my client, Miso & Easy, who makes ready-to-use miso paste. 

Garlic Noodles with Miso Butter

You can use any type of noodles that you want, Asian noodles or even spaghetti noodles (which is what I used). The secret ingredient is miso paste and Maggi Sauce….but soy sauce will work just as well.


Get your wok out (or a large saute pan with high sides) and add saute the garlic and green onions in butter, but for the love of Buddha, don’t burn the garlic – keep the heat in control!

Add in the mushrooms.

Just as the mushooms are softening, add in the miso (you might want to make a little space in the pan and stir the miso with the butter to melt it)

Maggi or soy sauce.

Cooked noodles and toss! toss! toss!

And toss more!
