We made this dish thinking it would be a good "one pot" meal, but it just wasn't filling enough. We got sick of it before feeling full. If I make it again, I would serve at least a little something else with it -- maybe some baked egg rolls. In addition, I would reduce the amount of ginger and increase the amount of miso paste. Some minced carmelized onions might help give the broth a little more depth, too.

completely agree with bellymama. This dish was good but definitely was missing something. It just need a little more kick. Would suggest using non-low sodium broth, go heavy on the mushrooms, and add 1 to 2 extra Tbs of miso paste.

OK I just wrote a 1 star review about another Asian noodle recipe, and this will be the last one so I wouldn't start feeling bad. *BUT* in Japan, where soba and miso have been consumed for centuries, they are not served together. Why? Because they don't go together! Try thick udon or ramen with miso based soup, they complement each other much better -- and more filling!
