Creamy Miso Udon

This Miso Squash Udon is creamy, flavorful and is a dish your whole family will love. 

I know it might not be exactly cold where you are right now but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a big bowl of this Miso Squash Udon Noodles. When we lived in North Carolina we would always go to this Japanese restaurant that would serve this amazing Butternut Squash Ramen in the fall. 

The squash paired with the flavorful creamy miso broth really gives this noodle soup that cozy fall feel. This recipe is so simple to make and can be easily modified by using what you have on hand. For example these udon noodles instead of ramen noodles. This recipe comes together in 30 minutes.

Topping Substitutions 

VEGGIES- For the veggies in this udon I used: onions, roasted butternut squash, sauteed mushrooms, green onions, and carrots. 

This recipe is great because you can use the veggies you already have on hand. Some of the other veggies I recommend using include: 

Delicata squash 

shiitake mushrooms

Bok Choy


Bean Sprouts 





Bamboo shoots


I used baked tofu for this recipe but any type of cooked protein would work just great for this recipe. 

Honestly, the list can go on and on when it comes to customizing your bowl of udon noodle toppings. There are just so many options.

But to be honest, I think that’s what makes it so much fun. 

Step one, sautee your aromatics. I used sesame oil for my oil, but if you don’t have that you can use avocado oil. Then I added my onion and cooked that for a couple minutes before adding garlic and ginger. 

Step two, add your miso paste, sesame seeds, sriracha, and soy sauce. Cook for 1 minute, stirring. If you love spice you can add more sriracha here. 

Step three, pour the broth. Since this recipe is plant-based and dairy-free, I used vegetable broth and unsweetened soy milk. You can use other types of dairy-free milks instead you just wanted to make sure it is unsweetened otherwise your entire soup will have a sweet flavor. 

Lastly, add your noodles. Cook your noodles for as long as it says on the back of the package. For the udon noodles I used, it was 5 minutes. You can use any type of noodles you have on hand. If you don’t have udon noodles I recommend ramen.

Lastly, pour in the milk and stir.

  1. How much noodles?

  2. Jone Hafermann

    How many oz of noodles did you use for 5 cups of broth? How many does it feed?

    • Hi Jone, I used 2 (90g) bundles of udon noodles. This was enough noodles to serve 4 people. We had leftovers and the noodles absorbed a lot of the broth. So if you do have leftovers, I recommend adding a little more broth before reheating. I hope you enjoy it.
