Magnificent Miso Soup! 1
I just ended a two-week bout with antibiotics. I don’t like taking medicine in the first place, so this was like toxic overload! I have been taking probiotics like crazy ever since to replenish the friendly bacteria in my body. My incredible health coach, Melissa suggested adding miso into my diet which is a great natural source of probiotics.
Melissa gave me her recipe for a super simple miso soup. The greens, she taught me, would help to feed the probiotics in my system. I added scallions, bouillon, and soba noodles to her concoction and it came out incredibly! It was salty and satisfying, warming and comforting. I know this is going to become a staple in my weeknight dinners.


This recipe makes enough for about 4 bowls of soup.
Ingredients:
– 6 cups water
– 1 low sodium veggie bouillon cube
– 1/2 box soba noodles (it came out to 4 oz)
– 1 bunch kale
– 4 green onions (scallions)
– 1 tblspn of dark miso paste per bowl
Directions:
– Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook soba noodles for about 5 minutes
– Drain and rinse noodles
– Bring 6 cups of water to a boil with bouillon cube
– When water comes to a boil, add in soba noodles, cook for 1 more minute
– Add kale and scallions
– Cook for 1 more minute and take off of heat
– Spoon soup into bowls
– Add 1 tblspn of miso paste to each bowl (do not add miso to bowling water or it kills the good bacteria)
– Enjoy
