Miso Soup

April 22, 2012

I just learned I have some new readers (Hi K and D!) and immediately felt guilty at how neglected this little blog has been.  So I decided to take a quick photo and post the (very simple) recipe for my lunch today.

I needed a somewhat filling lunch today given our dinner plans. Today is C’s birthday and while I bravely offered to make him a chicken dish of his choice, he instead chose dinner at Swiss Chalet (kindly stating that he preferred to avoid the trauma). As you can imagine, finding a non-chicken dish at Swiss Chalet will prove to be a challenge. So I decided to make this healthy and tasty miso soup to tide me over until (and through) dinner.

Miso Soup

Serves 1 big bowl

1.5 ounces soba noodles
3 tablespoons miso paste
handful spinach
2 green onions, thinly sliced greens and all
pinch of sea salt
pinch of dried chilies

Cook the soba noodles according package instructions, set aside.

Fill a saucepan with 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the miso paste with some of the boiled water (around 1/2 cup) until all the lumps are gone. Pour the miso mixture into the rest of the water, along with the noodles, spinach, green onions, salt and dried chilies.

Serve and enjoy.
