Miso Soup


Prep Time

15 minutes

Prep Notes

* Broth is richer if you allow soak time for water & kombu

Yields

4 servings

Ingredients

6 cups water
1 strip kombu
1 cup organic chard, kale or other greens, finely chopped
1/2 cup organic shiitake or button mushrooms
2 tbsp organic scallions, finely sliced
6 teaspoons miso of your choice {i like yellow in this recipe}
1/2 cup sliced carrots {optional}

Directions

Combine the water and kombu. Soak for at least 4 hours at room temperature, this makes a dashi broth.  Drain the kombu when ready to use. 

Bring dashi to a boil, and add mushrooms and carrots. Turn heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove a little broth to mix with the miso to form a puree and dissolve the miso. Place the miso in the pot and simmer for 2 minutes. DO NOT BOIL - it will kill the beneficial bacteria in the miso. Add the greens and wilt.

Place green onions in bottom of the soup bowls. Ladle hot soup into bowls.

Notes

Miso Soup is exceptionally nourishing to the adrenals. *Prepare the dashi in advance for easy and quick preparation. This broth can be eaten at any time. It is the ‘perfect’ food to warm up and nourish your body.
