Medicine in a Bowl (Miso Soup)

Print Friendly
 
Step-by-step Instructions:
  1. Fill a large pot with 8 cups of filtered water. Add garlic and ginger, and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer, and add onions and tofu.
  3. Meanwhile, bring another pot of water to a boil, and cook the ramen, 1 cake per person, according to directions, about 3 minutes. Drain when ready, and run under cold water to stop the cooking. 
  4. Add the broccoli and greens to the soup.
  5. Put the 2 teaspoons of miso into each bowl, and add 1 ladle of broth only to the bowl. Dissolve the miso into the broth in each bowl, then add another ladle of broth with the vegetables and tofu.

When I’m feeling a cold coming on, I make the whole pot just for me, and that’s what I eat all day long! I add the miso and noodles separately, because you do not want to boil the medicinal quality out of the miso, and you don’t want the noodles to get overcooked!
