Back in Black {The Inspired Plate's Food Photography & Styling Challenge}

Nope, this isn't about one of my favorite AC/DC albums...though it was ringing in my head while shooting this challenge from The Inspired Plate. Black Background was our challenge this month.

Want to mix things up with your dinner routine? This is so fun, Miso Udon Noodle Soup!

Miso Udon Noodle Soup with Oyster Mushrooms and Pickled Vegetables.

  • Simply raise a pan of 1/4 c miso, 4 c broth (vegetable, chicken, water will do), and one bunch of udon noodles to simmering.
  • Thinly slice red onion, cucumber and radish; let these vegetables soak in a mixture of vinegar and sugar (scant portions, just enough vinegar to cover); this will pickle the vegetables.
  • After 5-10 min, when the noodles are softened to your liking, add soy sauce and fish sauce to your taste.
  • Divide soup portions into bowls and add fresh oyster mushrooms and pickled vegetables. Top with watercress or microgreens and enjoy!

And don't forget dessert ....(my backup photo for Black Background...these are already gone..)
