Miso Soup with Shitake Mushrooms

This recipe uses Shitake mushrooms, broccoli, and carrots but a variety of vegetables could be substituted such as, zucchini, leeks, peas, or spinach.

Ingredients

  • 7 cups water
  • Oil for sauteing
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup shitake mushrooms
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 1-2 bouillon cubes
  • 5-6 tablespoons miso
  • Tamari (soy sauce)

Directions

Bring water to a boil. Meanwhile sauté garlic and vegetables in olive or vegetable oil until slightly tender. Add vegetables and bullion cube(s) to water. Remove 2/3 cup of the hot water with a cup and mix 5 tablespoons miso in with a fork. Pour water with miso into soup. Turn heat down so the soup does not boil again (boiling miso can destroy beneficial nutrients). Add tamari to taste.

Serves 4.
