Simple Healing Broth and Super Noodles
The perfect recipe to help you bounce back after an illness, this flavour-packed miso broth is brimming with veg, tofu and noodles.
This is my ultimate go-to comfort soup that I make whenever I’ve been ill or am just feeling a bit low and out of sorts. It instantly makes me feel better – and is so simple to make. Miso is full of probiotics to give your gut health a helping hand if you’ve been experiencing nausea or digestive issues, and if you’ve been sweating out a fever, the saltiness will help replace those lost electrolytes. If your appetite isn’t quite there yet, leave out the noodles, tofu and spinach; the simple light broth will help soothe your stressed-out system.
|miso paste (I like white miso)
|garlic clove, chopped
|sesame oil (or any other oil will do)
|mushrooms, washed and sliced (I like shiitake)
|carrots, washed, peeled and sliced
|2 heads of
|pak choi, chopped
|spring onions, chopped
|soy sauce or tamari
|2 x 90g packs of
|dried super noodles
|spinach, washed and sliced
Mix the miso paste in a little hot water until dissolved. Set aside.
Sauté the garlic in the oil in a pan over a medium heat for about 2 minutes or until soft.
Add the mushrooms, carrots, pak choi, spring onions, and soy sauce to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes or until soft.
Add the water and bring to the boil.
If you are having noodles, add them now and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spinach and tofu at this point too. Serve hot.
