Miso Soup Recipe (Serves 2)
- Boil the water in a small pot. Add chopped vegetables and mushrooms to boiling water. Lower heat, cover, and simmer until vegetables are tender (about 8 -15 minutes depending on the vegetables used). After vegetables have simmered for about 5 minutes, place a ¼ cup hot vegetable broth from the pot in a separate bowl. Add miso to bowl and mix until miso becomes a wet paste. Add tofu to bowl of miso mixture and set bowl aside until vegetables are tender. Tear seaweed into small pieces and add to the pot.
- When vegetables are tender, add the miso mixture from the bowl to the pot. Let stand for 3 – 4 minutes. Don’t heat miso on high heat, as it will kill the living microorganisms that aid in digestion and healing.
