Day 352: Miso Soup

The kids have always loved Wagamama influenced noodle type dishes, such as Ramen style noodle soups. There is nothing quicker than a miso soup: perfect for a Monday night following work / school / ballet.


  • 750ml water
  • 2 tbsp miso paste, mixed with boiling water to dilute it
  • 120g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 x Savoy cabbage leaves, finely shredded
  • 2 x tbsp edamame beans
  • 200g tofu, pressed and cubed
  • Small bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 2 x tsp sesame seeds
  • 50g rice noodles 

Bring the water to the boil in a large pan, add the mushrooms and edamame beans for a minute or two. Stir in the miso, add the noodles, tofu and shredded cabbage and cook for two minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and spring onion to serve.

It really is that quick and easy (and tasty). It’s a case of adding anything you fancy: carrot, sweetcorn, broccoli, spinach. It’ll still taste great.

*for a blast of heat try stir frying the tofu in Sriracha hot chilli sauce first
