Today, we had our second snowfall of the season in Philadelphia. Both times, the snowfall has been small and light. And both times, I wanted to curl up on the couch under a blanket with a big, hot bowl of soup. That’s why I made you this Miso Soup.
Miso soup is one of my favorite things to order at Japanese restaurants because it’s healthy, warming, and just tastes good. Little did I know that making miso soup at home would be SO easy!
I used a base of vegetable broth for this soup since I wanted to keep things vegan/vegetarian and I knew that the vegetable broth would be a great match for even more veggies and tofu.
Guys, this soup is ridiculously easy! Let me break it down for you: first I added 1 container of the vegetable broth and 4 cups of water to a big pot and brought it to a boil. Then, I added 3 tablespoons of white miso paste (which you should be able to find in most grocery stores) and stirred everything around until the miso was mixed throughout. Then, I added chopped vegetables and tofu and let everything simmer together for a couple of minutes. Then…I was done!! Yup, that’s it! You don’t have to cook the vegetables for too long since I spiralized the carrots, which made them extra thin, and I was okay with the other vegetables being just slightly cooked through. I thought the miso would add a lot of salt to the soup, but I added a little bit more at the end because I love salt. Test to see if you want to add some to yours.
I chose carrots, red pepper, and shiitake mushrooms as my veggies for this recipe but there are so many options of what you can add to this soup. I think onions, cabbage, bok choy, and spinach would also be great! I used a soft tofu so that it would mimic the melt-in-your mouth tofu you get at the restaurants.
This soup is pretty much just veggies and a little bit of tofu but it is so filling. It’ll warm you up and keep you full for hours.
