It’s fall here in Ohio and my heart has turned to soup. My Miso Ginger Noodle Soup is a great soup and very easy because I used convenience foods to make it. I know we’re always talking about not using prepared foods but I think this worked out well.
The miso-ginger stock that I used was something I bought at Trader Joe’s. It’s fantastic. I used to buy regular miso there but they no longer carry it. (At least right now. You never know what they’ll carry or discontinue.) I had intended to make my own miso stock but this was convenient and tasted great.
I had a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables so I decided to use that. Rummaging around in the refrigerator uncovered some cooked chicken that was ideal to add to the soup. Finally, I had some rice noodles in the pantry that I decided to include.
Miso Ginger Noodle Soup
This soup is fast and easy to make.
1 cartoon of miso Ginger broth ( I bought this at trader Joe’s but you could of course make your own broth.)
1 square Vietnamese brown rice noodles
3 cups Frozen stir fry veggies (whatever you have on hand works)
1 cooked boneless chicken breast, chopped or shredded
Dash Sesame oil (optional)
Pour the whole carton of miso ginger broth into a large saucepan and place on medium heat.
Add the frozen stir fry vegetables and kale and bring to a simmer.
Simmer for several minutes, until the vegetables are heated and the kale is wilted.
Add the cooked chicken and cook until heated through.
Cook the rice noodles according to package directions. Stir the dash of sesame oil over them for a bit more flavor.
Put some noodles in the bottom of a bowl and ladle soup over them.
Notes for Making Miso Ginger Noodle Soup:
You could use whatever vegetables you have on hand. The stir-fry vegetables worked great.
Adding some sauteed onions would be fantastic.
If you use spinach instead of the kale, add the spinach at the very end since it takes much less time to wilt.
I recommend cooking the noodles separately so that if you have leftovers, the noodles won’t turn into mush.
Let me know if you make this. Share a photo if you have one.
