Miso is a fermented soy bean paste, rich in nutrient density and beneficial probiotics to increase our gut microflora. The addition of medicinal mushrooms makes this winter soup a therapeutic and healthy addition to your work lunches or hearty dinners.
- 1 Sachet of Instant White Miso or 1 Teaspoon of Miso Paste
- 1/2 to 3/4 Cup of Extra Firm Tofu
- 1 Handful of Kale, ripped up into small pieces
- 1-2 Shiitake Mushrooms
- A few Small Broccoli Florets
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Tamari or Soy Sauce
- 2 Teaspoons of Honey
- 1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
- 1 Cup of Boiling Water
Mix the tamari and honey together in a small bowl. To this, add the tofu to marinade for a few minutes.
Turn a small fry pan onto high heat, add the sesame oil.
When heated, add the tofu, reserving the left over marinade in the bowl.
Stir-fry for 5 minutes, until the edges are starting to look golden.
At this point, add in the kale and half of the reserved tofu marinade. Continue to stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes. After this time, add the remaining tofu marinade to the fry pan.
Empty the miso sachet into a large mug or small bowl, top with stir-fried tofu and kale.
Pour in boiling water and stir thoroughly.
Enjoy with some sesame seeds on top!
