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


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