Quick Vegetable Noodle Soup

14 December

quick veg nood soup textThe most common reason to give in to processed and packaged junk is hunger with no immediate food. This is why planning ahead is so important.

But we can’t all plan ahead all of the time!

Especially not during the month of December: extra activities + early darkness leaves us feeling behind the eight ball more often than not.

This happened last night in my house, so I made 15-minute Vegetable Noodle Soup from scratch. And, no, I didn’t use my frozen, homemade broth {because, again, planning ahead, not always my forte}, nor did I use boxed broth!

The magic is in the Miso {fermented soybean paste}, and while you can mess around with veggies and noodles – use what’s in the fridge or what you like best – miso is the one must-have to make this soup delicious and nutritious. The good news is that a tub of it keeps forever in the fridge, so you can have it handy for emergency soup nights!

Miso comes in lots of flavors; I used Brown Rice Miso, but I recommend trying different ones to see which you like best, some have stronger flavors or are sweeter than others.  And remember, since it’s fermented it’s giving you some active cultures, so don’t add it to boiling water or they’ll die {see the directions below}!

Here’s to nourishing your body, even without planning ahead!
