Greens & Mushroom Miso Soup

This is one of my staples, I've got a couple of versions of it up but here's another! It's satisfying, fresh, salty, yum and so quick and easy. It uses cupboard ingredients plus it's HUGE and fills you right up for very few calories and is completely nutritious! This soup always makes me feel better when I'm feeling under the weather, most people would say chicken noodle soup but for me, it's miso and greens all the way.

Greens and Mushroom Miso Soup
Makes 1 large or 2 small serves
1 tbsp miso paste
1 bunch choy sum (or any other Asian greens)
2 cups chopped oyster mushrooms
1 cup dried mixed mushrooms ( I like shitake & black fungus)
4 cups water
1 cup coriander (or however much you desire, I like a lot!)
Optional Additions
Dark Chinese Vinegar
Soy Sauce
Bean shoots, spinach, bok choy (or any other veggies you like)
Rice or bean noodles (cooked)
  • Chop veggies
  • boil water - with vinegar and soy if you like them
  • add mushrooms
  • cook until tender (5 mins?)
  • add choy sum
  • cook until it turns a vibrant green and the stalks are still crunchy (2 mins?)
  • add miso and coriander (and chilli if you like it hot)
  • stir well to combine miso evenly
  • enjoy!
Thanks so much for your comments and advice on my last post- I really appreciate it (and so did my friend). I've decided to cook her a yummy dinner on Friday to help convince her that healthy food tastes good too... well that's the plan at least. I was thinking of making multiple smaller dishes to give a good variety to taste- and it wouldn't be the end of the world if she doesn't like one... 
Any ideas on what I should make?

Hope you're all well and happy! :)

  1. sound so delicious! i love a good bowl of soup!! thanks for sharing!

  2. Yum! I can't wait to try this new recipe!

    As for your friend, make sure to end the meal with dessert. My vegan friend almost converted me with a berry-soy mousse.

  3. What did you decide to make your friend in the end? If someone presented me with one of these bowls of soup I'd be well chuffed. Miso makes everything taste lovely.

  4. gorgeous! that looks like it could cure any cold. i never liked chicken noodle soup ><
