Magnificent Miso Soup!

I just ended a two-week bout with antibiotics. I don’t like taking medicine in the first place, so this was like toxic overload! I have been taking probiotics like crazy ever since to replenish the friendly bacteria in my body. My incredible health coach, Melissa of Thrive Whole Living suggested adding miso into my diet which is a great natural source of probiotics.

Melissa gave me her recipe for a super simple miso soup. The greens, she taught me, would help to feed the probiotics in my system. I added scallions, bouillon, and soba noodles to her concoction and it came out incredibly! It was salty and satisfying, warming and comforting. I know this is going to become a staple in my weeknight dinners.

This recipe makes enough for about 4 bowls of soup.

– 6 cups water
– 1 low sodium veggie bouillon cube
– 1/2 box soba noodles (it came out to 4 oz)
– 1 bunch kale
– 4 green onions (scallions)
– 1 tblspn of dark miso paste per bowl

– Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook soba noodles for about 5 minutes
– Drain and rinse noodles
– Bring 6 cups of water to a boil with bouillon cube
– When water comes to a boil, add in soba noodles, cook for 1 more minute
– Add kale and scallions
– Cook for 1 more minute and take off of heat
– Spoon soup into bowls
– Add 1 tblspn of miso paste to each bowl (do not add miso to bowling water or it kills the good bacteria)
– Enjoy
