Ahh another courgette recipe. I really love courgettes in case you couldn’t tell. To be fair to me the courgette isn’t really the star of this recipe. There’s also noodles and pork and spinach and other tasty things. Pork mince seems to always be reduced in our local supermarket so we tend to have a surplus in the freezer at all times. I’m always trying to work out what we can do with it which has lead to some pretty tasty recipes.

Most recently it was this pork and courgette ramen. I’ve never made a noodle soup like this before, Will has a weird thing about not eating soup for dinner (don’t ask) so I guess I’ve always steered clear but I figured that a soup which is made up of mainly carbs and meat is filling enough that Will can just deal with it!

Fortunately, he agreed with me. I think it was helped by the fact the he really really loves noodles.

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s just so quick to make but still bursting with flavour. The addition of the miso and dried porcini mushrooms really amps up the umami flavour and gives you a warming, slightly spicy soup which will be the perfect autumn dinner!

    I haven’t thought to add courgette to ramen before, but what a great way to bulk it out and eat some extra veggies.

    It’s so funny, Will sounds exactly like my husband! Silly ideas about what is good for dinner, and what isn’t. I mean seriously, what could be better for dinner than this lovely pork and noodle filled bowl of goodness!

    Yummy. I love that you put courgette in with your ramen! It looks fabulous! I really have to make this soon as it was hard for me to control my drool just looking at it. Yes, drooling is an issue when I see yummy food! Great recipe!
