I was home yesterday with a kid with a very upset tummy. Since we obviously aren’t chicken noodle soup eaters (though we do have “chikn” soup mix) I whipped up a little of Haley’s favorite soup, miso.
If you’ve never made miso soup you probably don’t realize just how easy it is. The following isn’t a traditional miso soup, so feel free to sub veggies or add noodles! This is what I had on hand and what I knew would make an upset tummy happy!
- 1/2 cup chopped carrot
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped seitan
- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp mellow white miso paste
- 1/2 chopped green onion
In a sauce pan soften carrot and celery in a few drops of olive oil. Add seitan and saute until browned. Add water and miso, stir well to dissolve miso paste. Simmer for 5 minutes. Garnish with green onion.
