Soup of the week: Green tea Miso soup

There aren’t many easier tasks than making a miso soup – you just drop everything in hot water and voila, you’ve just made yourself a nice dinner. Have you ever thought about adding green tea to the soup, though? If not, definitely try it, it isn’t only a great antioxidant, but adds subtile perfume and taste to the soup, too.

“I made this soup using mugicha green tea and it was delicious. I used dried wakamé in place of the fresh seaweeds and it made the taste even better. It was also filling, but not too heavy. Thanks for sharing.”

“I had my friends over for dinner and we had this soup! Very easy to make. Added turmeric too! Hard to find Miso at Walmart so went to whole foods and they still didn’t have it. Was great though.”

“This is a lovely easy and healthy soup that we ate for lunch with some Addie’s Texas Toast on top which made it even nicer.”

“This is an easy and healthy soup to make with a nice green tea flavor.”

“This soup was very quick and easy, and turned out fabulous. It was a great comfort food during the cold winter months.”

“I love this soup! I decided to try using Mugi Chai instead of green tea, and it worked out great. The soup is probably one of the best I’ve ever made. It is filling, delicious and nutritious. We like to eat the tea stem for dessert after we finish our bowls; it also makes a great garnish for this soup. This will be in my go-to recipe list from now on.”
