Miso Noodle Soup

Vegetarian miso noodle soup

Hi friends! How have your holidays been? Wonderful, I hope. I’ve been taking it easy with my family for the past few days, meeting up with old friends and savoring every last bite of my chocolate birthday cake (I turned 27 on Christmas).

Today I thought I’d pop in and let you know about my latest post on BHG’s Delish Dish blog, which is a restorative miso and soba noodle soup. It’s sort of like a vegetarian chicken noodle soup with an Asian spin. The soup is remarkably simple to make and, thanks to the irresistible flavors of miso and ginger, had me going back for slurp after slurp.

Miso Noodle Soup
Recipe type: Soup
Cuisine: Asian
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 ounces soba noodles, broken in half
  • 1 (14-ounce) container extra-firm tofu, drained and sliced into small, bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced into bite-size strips
  • ⅓ cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon white miso
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup fresh snow peas, halved crosswise
  • 1 carrot, peeled and ribboned using a vegetable peeler
  • For extra spice (optional): additional red pepper flakes and/or sriracha
  1. In a large saucepan, combine broth and water and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the soba noodles and return to boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tofu, bell pepper, onions, miso, ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper. Simmer, covered, for 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the halved snow peas and carrot ribbons. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute more or until the peas are crisp-tender.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with additional crushed red pepper and/or a light drizzle of sriracha, if desired.

    I would love to make this! I looked around on this post and on the bhg post, and I might be missing it, but is there a recipe written out (ie ingredients list and instructions)? I’m a bit of a novice and that kind of keeps me from messing up! Ha! If not, no biggie, I’ll just compile everything you said with the original recipe and write it down for myself! Thanks for all these great recipes!!!

      I’m sorry for the confusion, January. I just stated my revisions in the BHG post and linked over to their recipe; I’m going to start providing the recipe as I made it in future BHG posts.

    Happy belated birthday! The holiday season has been very good to me. Also really relaxing and filled with a bit too much sugar. Heading over to check out this recipe now. I’m in a soup kinda mood today!

    Thanks for the link–restorative is definitely needed in this quarter, especially when all the holiday cheer has yet to continue (colds during vacation? PAH!).

    love miso soup in general but adding the soba noodles and Asian swing makes this a winner recipe. After all the food over the holidays, its time to get back to the regular routine and this soup is the ultimate starter :) loved the pics

    Hope you had a lovely birthday! I love miso soup, especially on these cold winter days (especially if there is skiing involved). With noodles, it would be even better, and this looks incredible.

    Wishing you a happy New Year!

    This looks so hearty and delicious! I’ve been sick so I made myself some chicken noodle soup and I’ve pretty much overdosed on the stuff. This looks like a fresh variation that I must try this week. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
