Miso Noodle Soup is a comforting and flavorful dish inspired by Japanese cuisine. This soup combines the umami-rich taste of miso with noodles, fresh vegetables, and tofu, creating a warm and nourishing meal perfect for any day of the week.


  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste (white or red)
  • 2 cups cooked noodles (soba, udon, or ramen)
  • 1 cup firm tofu, cubed
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Optional: Seaweed (nori), cut into strips
  • Optional: Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. In a large pot, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the grated ginger and minced garlic, sautéing for about a minute until fragrant.
  2. Add the sliced shiitake mushrooms and julienned carrots to the pot. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  3. Pour the vegetable broth into the pot and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. In a small bowl, dissolve the miso paste in a few tablespoons of warm broth to make a smooth paste. This helps to prevent clumping. Then add the miso mixture back into the pot.
  5. Add the soy sauce and stir well. Let the soup simmer for about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the cubed tofu and cooked noodles to the soup. Gently stir to combine and heat through, ensuring not to break up the tofu.
  7. Turn off the heat and add the chopped green onions.
  8. Serve the soup hot, garnished with seaweed strips and sesame seeds if desired.
