Mixed Up Miso


Mixed-Up Miso

I made this soup based on leftover ingredients I had on hand...so the likelihood that you can repeat this recipe exactly is slim.  However, I encourage you to also take the "everything but the kitchen sink" mentality and mix it all in, adding a final touch of miso will make this soup taste good no matter what you include!


Ingredients:
shredded cabbage and romaine- about a cup
shredded carrots- about 1/2 cup
diced tofu- about 1/4 package
cooked chickpeas- about 1/2 cup
leftover Green Goodness Soup- about 1 cup
cooked rice noodles- about 2 cups
two Kukicha tea bags (or maybe green tea bags)
lemon juice
shoyu or soy sauce
2 tbsp miso

In pot bring 4 cups water to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer two teabags in water for 2-3 minutes.
Remove bags from water and return water to a boil.  Add cabbage, romaine, carrots, tofu, chickpeas, and any other leftover veggies or ingredients you desire.

Return soup to a boil then reduce heat and simmer.  Season soup with lemon juice and shoyu sauce (about a tbsp of each).  Scoop 1 cup broth from the pot and stir 2 tbsp miso into broth.  Return this mixture to the pot and stir well and serve.
This soup is warm and comforting and perfect for a cold winter day or when you just haven't had enough veggies lately!  Enjoy!
