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.

A restorative miso and soba noodle soup with vegetables, sort of like a vegetarian chicken noodle soup with an Asian spin.
- 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
- 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.
- Stir in the tofu, bell pepper, onions, miso, ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper. Simmer, covered, for 3 minutes.
- Stir in the halved snow peas and carrot ribbons. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute more or until the peas are crisp-tender.
- Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with additional crushed red pepper and/or a light drizzle of sriracha, if desired.

Happy belated birthday!
Happy Birthday Kate! How much miso did you add to this recipe?
Thanks, Jill. I used one tablespoon of miso in this recipe.
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!

It’s not even 10 o’clock in the morning, and I find myself craving some of this soup!
I’m sad to admit that I’ve never had anything with Miso in it- I think it’s time to change that, this soup looks delicious!
Oh please give miso a try! It’s magical, I mean it.
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

Happy belated Birthday! I didn’t know we are the same age! Oh and the soup looks AWESOME.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Kathryne! My grandfather’s birthday is also on Christmas Day, so I have a special place in my heart for Christmas birthdays :) Wishing you a happy, healthy, and love-filled 2013. xoxo
Happy Birthday, Kathryne (from both of us!)! Hope the day was wonderful :) This soup looks deliciously restorative – yum! Looking forward to delicious recipes in 2013! XO

Happy belated birthday Kate!! This is the kind of soup I need right now, I’m so sick!!
Yay, Japanese food! Happy Birthday too :)
I’ve made a lot of noodles in my time living in Tokyo, the results are documented here: http://www.wakemeupwithasmile.wordpress.com
Love the photos! x
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 is just the kind of meal I’ve been craving!
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!

I just stumbled across this recipe and I must say it looks good. I’m gonna try making it one of these days. Thank you.Again i must say The soup looks fabulous. I love the big noodles!
Made this last night – so simple and delicious. Trying to have a healthy week before I leave on vacation and this is perfect!
How long would I be able to keep this?
It should be able to keep in the refrigerator, covered for a few days. Hope this helps!
Thanks for sharing this recipe! I just used it as inspiration to spice up a bit of left over miso broth.
THIS IS AMAZING ! and I doubled the recipe ;)
I made this soup today and all three of my kids loved it. It’s the best miso soup I’ve ever made from scratch. Restaurant quality for sure. Thank you Kate!
Wonderful! Thank you for your review.
Can this be frozen
I don’t freeze all my recipes, so I can’t say for sure.
Such yummy soup, however, on our second meal from the pot I added in a bit of miso gravy and my husband thought it was perfect. I found it perfect either way and I have passed your recipe on to others! Thank you.
I love this recipe. I don’t need to go out for ramen anymore. This is just as delicious as what I get at restaurants.
This was disappointing and made me think it wasn’t tested as written. It was quick and easy but the flavor wasn’t quite right. Maybe more onions and less bell peppers would have been a better balance but I won’t try it again. I have enjoyed the peanut slaw soba salad and quinoa vegetable soup so I was surprised that this one seemed so off. I should have known when the comments were just birthday wishes.
I’m sorry you didn’t love this recipe, Anne.
Delicious and looks just like the photo!
This is so delicious. I made it for my son after he had his wisdom teeth out! He loves tofu and we needed to eat soft food. I didn’t have snow peas and added baby spinach at the end! It was so so so good. I will definitely make it again! Thanks!
I’m glad it was just what he needed! Thank you for your comment, Allison. I hope he has a fast recovery.
So delicious! definitely the quickest soup I’ve ever made, but so satisfying with the miso. Love the tofu addition as well.
This soup is so easy, quick, and delicious. I have been sick for weeks with a sinus infection, and now I’m dealing with the side effects of too many antibiotics. So, I thought the miso would be great for the probiotics. Since I wasn’t feeling well I didn’t want to go to the store (or ask my husband to go to the store for the second time in one day!) so I used what I had on hand and it was still really good. I used vermicelli bean thread noodles for the soba, mixed colored bell peppers, added some diced cabbage, omitted the tofu, replaced the snow peas with frozen sweet peas and it was really good. This will be on repeat this fall/winter. Thanks for another great recipe.
