Cook: Quick Miso Soup

Last Updated on

Quick Miso Soup

Like most people I have a few standard mid-week meals for the kids. Things I don’t have to think about, that are quick and easy to make and that I know all three of the children will eat!

This miso soup is one of them. And, even better, I can alter the amounts to feed just the kids or to make a meal for all five of us. I add the chicken at the last minute so that the soup itself is vegetarian.

I vary the ingredients and the amounts of each vegetable depending on what I have in the fridge/freezer and how many of us I am feeding.

For my basic recipe, you will need:
Miso soup, packet or carton [For the kids I make up 3 cups, for the five of us I make 6 cups]
Carrots, cut into strips
Mushrooms, sliced
Spring onions, roughly chopped
Sweetcorn [I use frozen]
Edamame beans [I generally use frozen]
Ramen noodles [I often just use the noodles from a packet of ‘super noodles’ type soup and discard the flavour sachet]
Cooked, sliced, chicken breast

Miso Soup Preperation

If adding chicken, cook your chicken breasts and leave to one side; or heat through ready prepared sliced, grilled chicken.

Heat the miso soup, whether using a packet mix or a carton; or making it from scratch… This is actually on my list of things to try, but not for a quick mid-week meal :) Add the carrots and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add the sweetcorn, edamame and spring onion and simmer for a further couple of minutes before adding the mushrooms and noodles. Cook for another couple of minutes until the noodles are soft.

Serve into bowls. Slice the chicken and add; if using. Serve immediately.

All three of my kids love this meal. The boys love practicing with their chopsticks, with these handy little connectors to make it easier for them. The wee girl likes to try, but very quickly reverts to a spoon. However they choose to eat it, the result is three empty bowls!

  1. Miso soup is my best friend’s favourite! I will try making yours for her next time she comes round. Quick and easy, I like that! Mel #RecipeoftheWeek

    1. I much prefer to use fresh noodles, but they are really difficult to find here, or I’m looking in the wrong places so far! Super noodles work a treat, and are easy to have on stand by in the cupboard :)

    1. It is tasty, and I add whatever veg I have in the fridge. Great way to get veg into the boys :)

  2. I made a soup a *bit* like this today Sara only with veg stock instead of miso soup and with rice instead of noodles. I’ve added cooked chicken to it and intend to have it for lunch tomorrow and thursday – hope I didn’t add the chicken too early…

    1. I only add the chicken at the end because I want the soup to be veggie so I can eat it :) I love the taste of a good miso soup, which is why I use miso rather than stock :)
