Why Asian vegan noodle soup
My refrigerator was stocked with tofu, carrots, green onions, miso, and ginger. Also, I had bok choy that was hanging out in my crisper screaming to be made into something delicious. Therefore, an Asian vegan noodle soup recipe inspired by stuff in the fridge was just right.
The one item that I don’t often have is white miso. But this incredibly nutritious ingredient is worth getting to know and makes this Asian vegan noodle soup taste like it came from your favorite Asian restaurant. Miso is often found in Asian food, it is made from fermented soybeans and comes in a range of colors. Incorporate miso into your cooking, you won’t be disappointed. It adds a rich depth of flavor and is a great source of B vitamins and folic acid. Miso is a gut friendly food. Fermented foods contain healthy bacteria known as nature’s probiotics. Look for it in the refrigerated or shelved area of the grocery store.
Above all, Asian vegan noodle soup is one easy soup. First, start by pouring in the broth, soy sauce, ginger, miso, sriracha, garlic, and carrots. Throw everything else in except for the kale. Greens look their best when they stay bright and full of texture. However, if you add the greens too soon, they will become wilted and not so pretty. Don’t fret if they aren’t as pretty, it will still be delicious.
