Handful of chopped fresh coriander

1 thumb sized piece of peeled and grated ginger
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon of tamari
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of sea salt
This recipe is an easy to follow and done in a few steps.
Sterilize your jar by filling it with boiling water and leaving it to soak for 10-15 minutes. Once ready to make your noodle jar, drain the water.
Place the sliced spring onions, red chili, dried mushrooms, sesame seeds and sliced red onion into the jar.
If not using instant cook noodles, cook the noodles according to instructions on pack. Once cooked, drain and add into the jar. Place the jar in the fridge until ready to enjoy. If using cooked noodles, you will want to use this the next day.
When ready to enjoy, make the paste by mixing together the miso paste, ginger, lime juice, tamari, maple syrup and salt. Pour into the jar and give it a good shake. You can also make this before and place in the fridge separately if you know you'll be pushed for time.
Pour boiling water into the jar until full and give everything a good stir. Leave to sit for 5-10 minutes until the mushrooms feel soft.
Stir through some freshly chopped coriander and enjoy.
