31 Aug Quick N Easy Miso Soup
I often want a quick, healthy and tasty homemade dinner but I don’t want to put a lot of effort into it.
One meal I turn to time and again is Miso soup. I love the saltiness of Miso, it’s so satisfying in either the winter or the summer. Also all you need for Miso soup is water and Miso paste, whatever else you add just makes it better.
Last night I made quick Miso soup and I happened to have a lot of fresh veggies on hand so I added those. I also had firm tofu and I felt like sauteeing it so I went ahead and did a quick saute in a very hot pan with a little grapseed oil and say sauce. I happen to like my tofu crispy but if you are feeling lazy just cut up your tofu and drop it in your soup.
My soup varies every time I make it because I never know what will be on hand. But one thing that remains consistent is that I always make enough for leftovers the next day!
Quick Miso Soup
6 Cups water
3 Tbs Miso paste (whatever kind you have) I used 2 red and 1 mellow yellow
Scallions sliced thin (Optional)
Carrots, sliced on the diagonal (Optional)
Soba noodles (optional)
Watercress or some other green (optional)
Bring your water to a boil and add Miso paste and carrots. Simmer for 10 minutes or so until carrots are softer.
In the meantime add your veggie and noodles to a bowl.
When soup is ready pour over veggies and serve.
