This Hot and Sour Miso Soup is a wonderful feel better soup. Flavoured with ginger, garlic, mushrooms and chili and with added miso for extra immune boosting properties, it will help you feel better fast!
In a large pot, heat vegetable broth and add garlic, ginger and shitake mushrooms. When hot, turn to simmer and add soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili sauce, sugar, soba noodles, and tofu. Cook until noodles are soft, about 5-7 minutes.
n a small bowl, combine miso with 1/4 cup water. Stir to dissolve. Add this to the soup. heat gently and do not boil. High heat can destroy the immune boosting power of the miso. Add green onions and garnish with cilantro, spicy peppers and shimiji mushrooms.
I recommend using lower salt varieties of soy sauce and broth as the miso adds sodium as well.
