🍁🍂 The tenth day of Blogtober has arrived and with it comes my veggie miso soup recipe. I eat this meal numerous times a week as it is so delicious and easy to make and you can serve it with noodles or rice depending on your mood.
What you will need (serves 2):
– 1 carrot
– a handful of button mushrooms
– 1 courgette
– greens (I used finely chopped kale and some savoy cabbage – you can’t beat pak choi though)
– 1 clove of garlic
– 1.5 tsp sesame oil (optional)
– 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
– 1.5 tbsp miso paste
– rice or rice noodles to serve
– 1 lime
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp ginger
– 1/4 tsp nutmeg
– fresh coriander to garnish (optional)
Peel and chop your carrot into small pieces, chop the courgette and slice your mushrooms. Add them to a pot with either sesame oil or about 100ml water on a medium to high heat. Let these fry for a few minutes and add the spices.
Once the mushrooms have softened, press the garlic and add to the pot. Let this cook for 30 seconds without burning the garlic and then add 900ml of boiling water. Turn the heat down to a low/medium heat and add your miso paste and soy sauce and squeeze in the lime juice. Leave this to simmer for about 15-29 minutes with the lid on for half of that time. Boil your rice as you wait or if you’re using noodles, add these 3-4 minutes before you serve. You will need you add your greens a few minutes before you serve also.
You are ready. Add fresh coriander if you wish (I highly recommend) and serve. You can use sriracha for some heat if you like, I served mine with wasabi, mainly for the colour, a little bit because the pain of eating it is quite enjoyable 😐
* If you’re like me and like to know what’s in your food, you’ll be happy to know that this soup is ‘souper’ healthy 😉
* Rewired isn’t going to count the calories in this meal because there aren’t enough in it to be worried about.
* The ingredients in this dish have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
– Miso is a paste made of soy beans, sea salt and koji. This mixture is left to ferment for either a few months up to a few years. It is a source of protein and is also a probiotic, helping to restore your digestive health and eliminate toxins from the body.
– Kale/Cabbage is so delicious in this soup. You can eat your greens with enjoyment instead of suffering a green juice or smoothie. High in fibre, zero fat and jam packed with disease preventing and protective nutrients.
– Lime juice adds so much flavour to this meal and also helps to keep you in top shape. It’s great for skin, hair and nails as well as digestive, respiratory and ophthalmic health.
