Loaded Miso Noodle Soup
TOTAL TIME: 20 MINUTES
MAKES: 4 SERVINGS
When I was little and I got sick, my mom would always make me noodle soup. (Remember the kind that came in a pouch?) Cuddling up under a blanket and slurping the broth from a mug was the most comforting thing in the world. This recipe gives me that same feeling, and I like to keep it in rotation for rainy nights and sick days.
4 servings of soba or brown rice noodles, uncooked
3 cups vegetable broth
3 cups water
1 cup julienned carrot*
1 cup julienned zucchini*
1 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 cup broccoli florets
3 tablespoons miso paste
1 (14-ounce) package firm tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 sheet roasted nori seaweed, broken into pieces
- Prepare the noodles according to the instructions on the package. Set them aside.
- In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the vegetable broth and water to a boil. Add the carrot, zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli, reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Use a ladle to transfer 1 cup of broth to a small bowl. Use a fork to dissolve the miso paste into the broth, then return it to the pot. Add the tofu, green onions, and cooked noodles, then simmer for 1 more minute, until everything is warm.
- Transfer to bowls and top with the nori seaweed.
NOTE: “Julienned” means sliced into matchstick shapes.
