Easy Miso Soup

I apologize for my absence this week! I haven’t been cooking much due to work and such but I’m slowly getting back into the game. Tonight I wanted something salty and light- what’s better than miso soup paired with a side dish of steamed tempeh and broccoli?

Miso soup is beyond easy. The only difficultly I experienced was finding affordable miso paste. At Fairway in the UES, I found a tub of it for approximately $6.00. That’s not all that bad considering!

Miso Soup

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 stalks of chopped scallions
  • Vegetable of choice (I used ribboned carrots)
  • 1/4 block of firm tofu, small cubes
  • 2 cups of water + 2 tsp vegetable bouillon (or 1 bouillon cube)
  • 3 tbsp miso paste
  1. Saute the scallions in the olive oil in a pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the vegetables and the tofu. Cook for 5 minutes. (I used a normal vegetable peeler against a large carrot to create short ribbons)
  3. Add the broth, stir. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the miso paste and cook for 10 minutes.

Enjoy this soup with homemade sushi or steamed tempeh with liquid aminos.

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life.
