step by step

  • 1Bring a kettle full of water to the boil. Pour over the instant rice noodles in a bowl and leave them to soak and soften for 3 minutes, then drain and rinse briefly in cold water to separate them. Divide between 2 deep bowls. Meanwhile, refill and boil the kettle for the miso soup.
  • 2Shave the carrot into ribbons using a vegetable peeler. Divide the carrot ribbons, mushrooms and spring onions between the bowls.
  • It's true – this is a no-cook soup! You just need a kettle of boiling water to soak the noodles and make up the miso soup. Chilli and coriander prawns add an extra layer of flavour, but unflavoured ones work well too.
  • 3Squeeze the miso paste into a measuring jug, add the root ginger and make up to 600ml with boiling water from the kettle, stirring to dissolve the paste. Pour over the noodles and raw vegetables in the bowls.
  • 4Tuck the coriander sprigs into the bowls and top with the chilli and coriander king prawns. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
