Miso Vegetable Soup

There are times when a nice warm bowl of miso vegetable soup is just the right thing.

This soup is very easy to make and is delicious through and through. I find the warming earthy flavor of miso to be comforting on a very deep level. Sipping the broth just feels nourishing to the core!

Miso Vegetable Soup

  • 1 quart organic chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1 carrot, shredded or sliced
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 2 broccoli florets
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1 radish, cut into thin matchstick like pieces
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons organic miso

Finely chop the vegetables. I find this size is most compatible with this soup.

Bring the broth to a boil, add the finely chopped vegetables. Simmer until the vegetables are cooked through. Stir in miso until dissolved. Top with sliced scallions and serve.

Re-heat soup gently, as miso will lose many of the wonderful properties  it provides under high heat. Typically, I make just what I want so there are no left overs.

A word about miso: There are many varieties of miso. I prefer the white one which has fewer soy beans ans is mild in flavor.

Miso provides great probiotics which promote a healthy gut, is a source for vitamin B-12 and has all the essential amino acids which makes it a complete protein. However due to the salt level, it is not a great source of protein.

Because miso contains beneficial living organisms, high heat will kill them so stir the miso into the soup just before serving.

Here is a video all about the making of South River Miso, fascinating to watch and learn.

What I love the most is how they do the process.
