Miso and Garlic Butter Noodles


  • 5-6 ounces noodles
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • sesame seeds for color optional


  1. Start by boiling and cooking the pasta. I like lo mein noodles for this dish, but really any noodles you have on hand will work. You could also use a whole wheat or gluten-free option if you prefer.

  2. While the pasta cooks, mince the garlic. When you only have about 5 minutes of pasta cooking time left, melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. You want the garlic to brown but not burn. During the last minute of cooking, stir in the miso.

  3. Toss the drained, cooked noodles in the butter mixture. Then serve topped with green onions and sesame seeds if using.
