  2. In a large pot, sauté 2-4 together until tender at medium heat
  3. Add 5 & 6 and continue sautéing for 1-2 minutes
  4. Add 7-11 and bring to boil
  5. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 3 minutes

  7. Put into 2 large soup bowls and serve immediately – add 11-12 to the top of soup for garnish
  8. Serves 2 (very large servings)

 

Discussion:

  • 400g of chicken or prawns (raw measurement) can be substituted in this recipe for the tofu (or protein) portion of the plate.  If using chicken, sauté with the onions and carrots before adding the miso.  If using prawns, sauté as above (as they cook very quickly).  Either substitution will increase the protein in this recipe by about 10g but will not substantially change the calorie content.
  • While this recipe is not overly salty, if you’re watching your salt intake just leave out the soy sauce.  The recipe is still great without it!
