The Infamous Hearty Miso Noodle Soup

I have been craving this ever since I made it couple of days ago. It was that good.
I felt like I had a bit of a cold coming up, so I wanted soup. Hearty, warming noodle soup…
This recipe is a mixture of a classic Miso soup, Veganomicon’s Shiitake Udon and some reminiscence of childhood’s chicken noodle soup.

It is relatively quickly to make – for soup anyway – and the result is delicious.

You need (4 portions, or 3 big ones):

  • Rice noodles (Get them from the asian grocery, I paid only $1,20 for mine!)
  • Miso paste (I used white)
  • Shiitake mushrooms
  • Edamame beans
  • 1/2 onion
  • Some spring onion
  • 1l water or vegetable broth
  • Some oil of your choice

This is how we do it:

First, soak the rice noodles in cold water for about an hour, or according to package. Use this time to take a power nap, prepare the veggies, or make Vegan Reese’s peanut butter cups (like I did).

Slice mushrooms and onions.
Heat up the oil in a large pot. Throw in the washed, sliced mushrooms and onion. Sauté them until soft.
Cook the rice noodles for 10-12min.
Use this time to peel your edamame. This is tedious work, but so worth it.

Stir 2 big tablespoons of miso soup together with some hot water in a cup.

Mix the miso liquid with the water or broth. (I just used water, but if you are fancy and make your own vegetable stock, use that.)

Throw in the mushrooms, onion and edamame and noodles in a pot. Heat everything up.

Lastly, sprinkle some spring onion over it.
Dig in!

I had a bowl right away and went back for seconds. I also animated all my house mates to have some – they loved it. In the morning, I had the very last little bit for breakfast. Ooops 😀

The best is: this recipe is vegan, gluten-free, cheap and yum.

Which is your favourite soup in the colder days?

    That looks really tasty! I haven’t tried miso soup yet but I love miso so I will have to give it a go! Thanks for sharing!

    • thanks 🙂 you should really try this, probably one of the top 5 soups I’ve ever had and definitely the best one I ever made… so yummy. and so easy! most soups need to cook for hours, this one only takes about half an hour or so (plus the hour to soak the rice noodles, but you can buy pre-cooked ones)
