Simple Miso soup with Tofu and Seasonal Veggies:
Serves 3 – 4
This is one of our favourite weekday evening meals. It is simple and nourishing, full of vital plant minerals and our son loves it also, especially served on top of warm brown rice. The seaweed if you can find it is lubricating and healing to the gut and adds a lovely salty flavor to the soup.
1 – 2 tbsp EV coconut oil or cold pressed sesame oil
3 Scallions thinly sliced
3 Carrots: peeled and thinly sliced into half moon
3/4 cup broccoli florets
3 “ long piece of daikon radish: peeled and thinly sliced into half moons
8 – 10 Shitake Mushrooms: cleaned with a brush, torn or thinly sliced
½ “ Fresh ginger: very thinly sliced
1 package organic Silken Tofu: cubed
3 cups Veggie or chicken broth infused with some wakame. i.e soak the dry seaweed into the broth.
1 cup water
Fresh white or brown miso paste (buy an organic brand, from the refrigerated section of your health food store)
Cooked short grain brow rice.
Gomashio (a mixture of sesame seeds and sea salt) and nutritional yeast to garnish.
- Warm oil in a soup pot until oil is hot. Reduce heat to medium / medium low.
- Add carrots, radish, scallions and ginger and cook until slightly softened.
- Now add mushrooms and saute for another minute or so.
- Pour in the broth and stir until warm.
- Now add in the silken tofu.
- Let the veggies cook until softened but still al dente.
- Now make the miso paste. In a separate cup, take 2 tbsp of the miso paste in a ½ cup of warm broth. Mix well until smooth and not lumpy. Slowly add this paste into the soup pot. Let the soup warm gently for another 2 – 3 minutes, but do not bring to a boil. Add water if you need to thin the soup more.
- To serve. Place a ½ cup of warm cooked rice in a bowl. Top with the veggies, tofu and broth.
- Garnish with gomashio and possibly a little bit of nutritional yeast (our son loves this).

- Vow to not complain, criticize, or gossip today. Rather try to be grateful and see the lesson to be learned in all situations. If you slip up forgive yourself and keep going. Notice how much energy you were spending on negative thoughts.
- Talk to a plant! When you direct loving words to your plant notice how it soaks up the positivity like sunlight. Helping both of you grow in the right direction.
