Today's meal is going to be a simple one. I'm the last hold-out of some sort of sore throat and fever thing going through our house. The kids were up to a smorgasbord of leftovers, but I'm still on the warm liquid diet. Last time I was sick, unfortunately not so very long ago, my friend Angela reminded me that miso soup is an excellent vegan treat during a cold. I found a simple recipe on my miso paste container and decided I'd give it a shot. Or rather, ask my husband nicely, albeit probably a bit whinily, to give it a shot.
Ingredients for 1 serving
- 1 cup water or Easy Slow Cooker Vegetable Broth
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped scallion
- 1/2 teaspoon ready-to-use Wakame seaweed
- 2 tablespoons tofu, finely diced
- 2 teaspoons miso paste, dissolved in a small amount of water
- green onions or chives (optional)
Simmer scallion, Wakame and tofu in water or broth until seaweed is reconstituted and soup is warmed through. Take soup off of heat and add dissolved miso. Top with green onions or chives, if desired.
This was definitely the perfect soup for me today. I'll have to try it again when my tastebuds have recovered a bit, but I think it was a nice, mild, simple miso soup.
