  • 1 litre vegetable broth low sodium
  • 2 mushrooms, shitake, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, finely grated
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 100 grams soba noodles
  • 150 grams tofu, medium, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp miso
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • cilantro, finely chopped
  • jalapeno or chili peppers, minced or sliced thinly
  • shimiji mushrooms


  1. 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.

  2. 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.  

  3. I recommend using lower salt varieties of soy sauce and broth as the miso adds sodium as well.
