Miso Soup with Soba Noodles and Greens

More miso, you ask?  Why yes, this is another weeknight bowl of soup, but this time: with noodles!

The first bowl of miso you may remember was my Miso with Veggie Dumplings – the perfect weeknight dinner: quick and easy, lots of veggies!

But this, this is a new bowl of miso that celebrates the greens currently in my fridge: collard greens and bok choy.  Honestly, as Heidi at 101 Cookbooks explains in her miso recipe, you can add just about anything hiding in your fridge to a bowl of miso, and you’ll get a pretty tasty and nutritious dinner.  Here are the details for this variation — I hope it sends you off to create your own!

Miso with Soba Noodles and Greens

Inspired by Heidi’s Miso Soup Recipe at 101 Cookbooks, serves 2

  • 4 tbsp. miso paste (red or white)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 bunch soba noodles (soba noodles usually come packaged in separate little bundles, I usually use one bundle per person, but used less tonight as we weren’t too hungry)
  • 2 handfuls frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 handful collard greens, stem removed and torn into small pieces
  • 1 bok choy, sliced
  • 1 handful button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 splash tamari
  • 1 splash rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. flax oil
  • 2 tsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1 green onion, sliced

In a large pot, bring water to a boil, then whisk in miso paste.  Add noodles, edamame, and veggies.  Let heat through until noodles are tender (takes about 5 minutes).  Add tamari, vinegar, flax oil, chili garlic sauce, and serve topped with green onion.

    Nyom, nyom, nyom. I’m inspired to make this my lunch–if I make a trip to the grocery store first. (My pantry now consists of Cup-a-Soup, soy milk and instant decaf coffee. Bleccccch.)

    Ohh Linz, my hero, you are rescuing me from a boring just-got-back-to-town pantry/freezer dinner. I’d forgotten about how soba in miso soup! Have you tried roasting tofu in miso? Miso roasted meats were a Japan fave for me – the marinade is almost identical to the base for your soup and I bet it would work for tofu. xoxox

    Ohhh, that sounds lovely. I’m going to try roasting the tofu in a miso marinade.

    Glad I could help you out! 😉
