Homemade Miso Soup

Although we’re heading into Spring, there’s still time for some warming soups. And this one is yummy and probably one of the easiest soups I’ve ever made. I’m a big sushi fan and every time I go, I make sure to get a miso soup. Well, turns out it’s pretty easy to make it at home too! So today I’m sharing my recipe for Homemade Miso Soup.

Miso soup is nourishing, it’s warming, it’s soothing and it is really beneficial to your gut. 


I think so.

Plus, it’s way easier than you might think (definitely easier than I thought) to make at home.

I’m not sure why I thought it would be complicated. There aren’t very many ingredients and miso paste is pretty easy to find at any grocery store.

Miso is a fermented food so it adds more beneficial bacteria to your gut. I really love this soup as it supports my mental health, this is because it’s incredibly gut-nourishing.

It’s also rich in essential minerals and a good source of some B vitamins, vitamin E, K and folic acid. Miso is very protein rich and with the addition of the brown rice ramen and tofu, we’ve got the protein covered in this recipe.
