Miso salmon soup with zucchini noodles

January 31, 2013

Author Notes:

When I've been travelling too long, when I'm on my own, when I need to eat something that isn't white stodge but still want some comfort in a bowl, this is what I turn to. The courgette ribbons are sneakily made with a vegetable peeler, giving all the slippery appeal of noodles, without the bulk.
