Seems that my body has already switched into fall/winter mode… In the last few days I find myself craving for hot soups and stews with lots of winter vegetables and lots of satisfying carbs like noodles or potatoes. And you know: if your body wants something you should give it to him!
So today I made something in between a soup and a – let´s say – veggie bowl (I call this recipe a soup because this was actually the plan). In the end I added so many veggies and noodles that it rather assembled a bowl 🙂
I like miso soup because it is so easy and quick to make. You simply make the broth, which takes literally 2 minutes and then you can just throw in whatever you like. I usually make it to use up excess vegetables from the fridge and it always turns out to be really delicious. In this recipe I also add some almond butter to give my “clean-out-the-fridge“ dish an extra update.
As I already mentioned, after you have made the broth the options of ingredients you can add are nearly endless. Besides the ingredients I use here I like also broccoli, bell pepper, mung bean sprouts, celery, bok choi and many more. So feel free to vary my recipe and just use whatever veggies, carbs or also meat comes to your mind… or whatever you have left in your fridge 🙂
- 500 mL water
- 1 Tbsp miso paste
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
- Some lime juice
- Ginger powder (optional, to taste)
- Sweetener (optional, to taste)
- 40 g soba noodles
- 2 small carrots, sliced
- 1 handful red cabbage, chopped
- 1 small zucchini, sliced
- Some shiitake mushrooms
- Fresh sprouts
- 1/4 avocado, sliced
- Mix all broth ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring. When boiling, turn the heat to low/medium and simmer.
- First add the noodles, the carrots and the cabbage. Simmer for about 3 minutes, then add the zucchini and the mushrooms. Simmer for another 3 minutes, then garnish with the sprouts, avocado and cilantro.
- If you are deviating from this recipe make sure to adjust the cooking time according to the ingredients you use. For example, in this recipe the carrots and cabbage need a slightly longer cooking time than the zucchini and the mushrooms.
