Posted on March 27 2015

As the weather tries to make up its mind - is it cold, is it warm, many people find themselves coming down with colds and suffering from major allergy attacks. The miso paste in this hearty miso soup has antioxidant benefits that can help you combat those ailments. Simple to make and good for you is a win-win in our book!
- 4C water
- 4-5 TBS yellow (mild) miso paste
- 2 C chard, chopped and loosely packed (spinach or kale would also work)
- 1 C green onion, sliced thin
- 1 C shredded carrots
- 12-16 oz extra firm tofu, drained, extra water squeezed out and cut into 1/2" cubes
- 2 sheets of nori, crumbled
- bean sprouts
- soy beans
In a large sauce pan, bring the water to a boil and then down to a simmer.
While this is coming up to a boil, mix the miso paste with some hot water in a separate bowl and whisk until the clumps have dissipated. When your stove top water is boiling, reduce the heat to bring down to a simmer, mix in the miso and the rest of the ingredients. Allow to simmer for about 10-15 minutes and serve hot.
