Day 11: Quick Miso Soup

It may not be snowing outside, but it’s definitely winter. I woke up in the dark to spend 3 hours in an unheated building getting cold to the bone. The only option was soup. I had to hold back from climbing into the bowl. Luckily it only took about 7 minutes from keys in the door to sitting at the table.  A quick dinner saves plenty of time for a hot bath and long nights sleep.

This might not be textbook miso soup but it’s everything you want it to be. 

Quick Miso Soup
(single serving)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup water
1 teaspoon white miso paste
1 ounce silken tofu, cubed
1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, diced
1 small head bok choy, quartered 
shredded carrots
1 green onion, sliced
dash soy sauce
red pepper flakes
drizzle toasted sesame oil
sprinkle sesame seeds
In a medium size pot, heat water and broth over medium heat. Stir in miso paste and add tofu and vegetables. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes until broth is just under boiling and vegetables are tender. Stir in soy sauce and red pepper flakes. Serve and drizzle sesame oil and sesame seeds.
