Uplifting Miso Soup For A Protein Packed Snack Or Light Lunch

When you’re feeling down there’s  nothing quite like a bowl of Miso soup to warm up your cockles and make you smile again. It has the ability to comfort me to the very core and I will quite often make this as a mid afternoon snack on dreary admin days, or if I’m feeling poorly I’ll drink it from a cup on the sofa,  it’s such a quick pick me up, with no prep and hardly any cooking time.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can add or omit ingredients to suit your needs. I’ve put the quite filling version here suitable for a light lunch, but if you’re after a quick snack just omit the noodles.

Ingredients 

1 dessert spoon of Miso paste  

 
1 handful of dried seaweed (chopped)

 
1 handful of spring onions (chopped)

15mls of soy sauce

150g of firm tofu

100g of buckwheat noodles 

Method

Put miso paste and soy sauce in a pan with the noodles and enough water to cover noodles.

Drain tofu and chop into regular squares

 

Cut up dried seaweed with scissors and chop spring onions with knife.

Place these into the pan and simmer until the noodles are soft.

Stir and pour into a bowl

Find a big cardie, close the curtains, find a cat to sit next to and enjoy.
