Red Miso Soup Loaded with Veggies

Red Miso Soup Loaded with Veggies
I forget about miso soup and was reminded of it when my husband mentioned sipping veggie broth when on location for a shoot. Sounded so comforting. So today I made miso soup with many of the vegetables I had on hand, but there are many vegetables that work well here just as long as they are fresh .
This isn’t an exact recipe with measurements so you decide how much of each vegetable to use and then adjust seasoning to taste. I love red miso it’s a bit stronger than the white and even though my recipe sounds like a lot of salt it’s really not and I ended up adding a large pinch in the end.

Note: I used a mandolin to slice the yam and onion thin

My Miso Soup Ingredients
Serves 2
4 cups filtered water
2 heaping tbsp. red miso paste
½ tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp tamari
2 tsp umeboshi vinegar – optional

Mushrooms sliced thin
Red cabbage sliced thin
Kale chopped
1/3 block extra firm tofu cubed
Pinch cayenne or sliced jalapeno or red chili
Soba noodle – optional but nice
Lime juice
Cilantro or parsley
Toasted sesame seeds

Other veggie ideas
Red radish

Add to medium pot  followed by sesame oil, tamari, ume, ginger, onion, yam, mushroom, red cabbage, kale, tofu, cayenne, bring to a light boil then simmer covered until the yam is almost tender about 3 minutes, then add the soba and cook 3 minutes uncovered, add the spinach stir and serve.
