Celery and Tofu Miso Soup

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

So I’m trying out some international vegan recipes this week, and I want to share them! When I visited Japan I had an opportunity to try different kinds of Miso Soup on multiple occasions. Miso Soup is a traditional Japanese dish with a plethora of variations. While I personally find all of the Miso Soup varieties quite tasty and healthful, I tend to prefer the versions that are lower in salt. The soup has a distinct flavor, and it does not take ages to make. So if you’re a busy person, then do not despair! You’ll be enjoying an international vegan dish at home in no time.

This particular recipe comes with a lot of additional options. If you don’t like a lot of salt, then try using unsalted vegetable broth or creating your own. I like adding a spicy kick to meals, so I tend to sprinkle Cayenne Pepper into all of my soups. I also have low iron, so I like to add spinach to a lot of my dishes. You could also add green peas, carrots, onions, or a host of other veggies to make this recipe your own. Try this one out and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

o 5 cups of vegetable broth

o 6 ounces of cubed tofu, drained

o 3 teaspoons of grounded ginger

o 1 crushed garlic clove o 3 tablespoons of miso seasoning

o 1 teaspoon of soy sauce (I like the low-sodium version)

o 3 ounces spinach, cleaned and shredded

 Instructions:

1. Boil vegetable broth in a boiler. Reduce heat to medium. Add ginger and garlic (if you're adding onions, this would be a good time). Simmer for about 10 minutes.

2. Add your miso. Stir until the mixture dissolves.

3. Add soy sauce, spinach, and tofu. Simmer for around 6 minutes, or until the spinach is tender.

Your soup will taste the best if it is served right away! Enjoy!

      Miso is a traditional seasoning from Japan. It usually has a salty taste, which is why I don't add anything else salty to my Miso Soup. It's rich in protein and vitamins, and it's basically made from fermented soybeans, barley, or rice. If you can't pick it up at your usual shopping place, then you could probably find it at an Asian store or online!
