Ameera here!

We love miso soup! We really packed this soup with tons of nutritious veggies.  The beauty of this soup is that you can add or subtract just about any of the ingredients and it will taste flavorful every day of the week. It is so yummy!

Fighting off colds and flu

This Veggie Miso Soup is the equivalent to the old “chicken soup for the soul” type of soups.  If you find yourself getting a few sniffles, then this soup just has that “feel good” soul warming affect.  Since it is loaded with all kinds of goodness, it really gives a boost to your immune system.

Miso soup is considered the original health food!  It is loaded with so much goodness.  The garlic is an immunity booster, and the ginger is excellent for digestion.  The mushrooms and mushroom broth hit Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen and so many other items on his list.  The miso paste is loaded with excellent probiotics.  It’s a win-win-win.

Mushroom Broth and Red Miso Paste

We flavored the broth with a light mushroom broth and red miso paste.  The red miso paste is fermented longer than the white miso, and adds a beautiful depth of flavor to this soup.  You can use white miso paste if you wish, but we recommend using the red miso to layer in that umami flavor that we all love.

Garlic Chili Paste

The garlic chili paste really punches up this soup. We LOVED it.  You can use Huy Fong Food’s Garlic Chili Paste if you wish to speed things up, or you can make your own.  We tried this soup with the Huy Fong Food’s Garlic Chili Paste, and then we also made our own. Making your own is super easy, we included the recipe in the notes section.  Both are equally delicious!

Mushrooms

Sautéing the button mushrooms in Tamari really intensifies the mushroom flavor.  Mushrooms tend to have a lot of water content and by sautéing them it helps release some of that water and allows the mushrooms to take on the Tamari flavor.  It really makes the dish taste sooooo good!

I’ll let Mom tell you more.

Hi!  Robin here!

When Monkey made this miso soup, I instantly fell in love with how beautiful it looked and how healthy  and delicious it tasted.  The Garlic Chili Paste warmed in the soup instantly cleared my sinuses, I could breathe!

I suffer from seasonal allergies, and this opened me right up, but be warned it’s spicy (if using the Garlic Chili Paste).  I loved the unique flavor of this soup.  It is a tiny bit sour like a traditional miso soup, and at first my brain needed to wrap itself around the complex, yet simple flavors, and then I instantly fell in love with it.  I literally scarfed it down.

Restaurant Style Serving

We did several kitchen tests for this recipe. We tried cooking the soba noodles directly in the soup, but they released SO much starch into the broth, that the broth became thick.  We did a little research and found the best way to serve this soup is to cook the noodles separately and rinse them under cold water to remove all the starch, and then keep them separate until serving just like the restaurants do.

If you feel confident that you removed all the starch via the rinsing process, you can add the cooked and rinsed noodles into to the broth at the end right before serving, but we found the best way to serve them was to keep them separate.  If they get stuck together, you can rinse them again under cold water until they separate.

If you try this recipe, we would love to know if you love it as much as we do!  Please leave us a review 🙂
