Fast & Light Miso Soup

I have made this soup three times in the last week. I am trying to eat healthier and lose some weight in the process. My mum and I are reporting in on our weight loss every Thursday morning, so this is a great light meal for the night before stepping on the scale. It is also great as lunch the next day. It is also super (soup-er?!) quick to put together – within 15 minutes of pulling the ingredients out of the fridge, you will be enjoying a nice, steamy bowl!

Fast & Light Miso Soup

Yield: 2 big servings

8-10 mushrooms
2 handfuls spinach
4 cups water
3-4 tablespoons miso paste

Slice the mushrooms thinly. Saute them in the saucepan you will be using for the soup for about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

Bring the water to a boil in the same saucepan and whisk in the miso paste. Then add the mushrooms and the spinach. Stir until the spinach just barely begins to wilt. Serve.
