Oodles and oodles of tasty noodles!

Noodles are a great one-hand dish, and my vegan take is popular with the whole family. Packed full of fresh vegetables and drizzled in a homemade sauce this recipe is sure to treat you right, especially if you suffer from IBS or are gluten-intolerant/coeliac.

If you're looking to reduce the salt content, try using low-sodium soy sauce and perhaps cutting it out of the recipe itself.

Cooking Method

  1. Put a kettle of water on to boil. Add the miso and noodles to a large bowl. Once boiled, pour the water into the bowl to cover the noodles and set aside to soften.
  2. Wash and chop the pepper into thin strips and the baby corn into thirds, and peel the ginger with a spoon and chop finely. Chop the white ends off the spring onion and cut the remaining green part into small sections. Place all to one side.
  3. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and toast the sesame seeds. Ensure that you move them around in the pan to avoid burning. Toast for 3 minutes, or until lightly brown, then remove from the hob and set aside.
  4. Strain the miso water from the noodles. Add the water to a wok and bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Add the baby corn and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Whilst the baby corn is cooking, make the sweet chilli sauce by adding all the sauce ingredients (chilli, paprika, agave, soya sauce, tapioca and lime) to a large bowl. Mix together well.
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients, including the noodles to the wok along with the sauce, and heat for 2 minutes.
  7. Serve in a large bowl.

Bell pepper

Red bell peppers are supposedly filled with more than 200% of your recommended daily vitamin C intake, meaning they do wonders for your immune system. They also contain vitamin B6 and folate, both of which can help prevent anaemia. 


Ginger is a great natural remedy for curing nausea, sickness and pain, as it can help settle the stomach and digestive system. 

Rice noodles

Rice noodles are a great alternative for those who have gluten intolerance/coeliac disease, as they are gluten-free. 

Baby corn

Baby corn is a low FODMAP food but be careful not to mix it up with regular sweetcorn as that may trigger symptoms if you have IBS.
