Tofu and soba noodles in a miso-ginger broth
25 – 35 Minutes
Miso paste is an extraordinary ingredient. Made from fermented soybeans, it’s loaded with umami and good-for-you probiotics. It comes in three colors: white, yellow, and red, depending on how it’s been fermented. White miso, which is fermented with rice, has a pleasant sweetness and brings layers of flavor to this simple noodle soup. Take care not to let the broth boil once the miso has been added—the high temperature will kill off the healthy bacteria and the miso can turn grainy.
