This easy mushroom miso soup with noodles is a healthy and warming vegetarian meal. My favourite spicy mushroom soup is made with white miso paste and topped with a runny boiled egg.
Ohhh this soup is just peak winter comfort food.
These miso mushrooms are so rich in umami flavour and they’re cooked in plenty of butter until they’re super soft and tender which makes them a dream when they’re served on top of this warm and comforting broth.
The rest of the soup is made with plenty of ginger, garlic and miso paste plus bundles of soba noodles which are cooked until al dente.
I like to top everything off with a runny boiled egg and plenty of chilli flakes. I use gochugaru which is a Korean chilli flake and is definitely not traditional but I love it for it’s slight sweetness.
Why we love this mushroom miso soup…
It’s a vegetarian dish which is still super filling and hearty thanks to the noodles and rich broth. It can also easily be made vegan by skipping the egg and using olive oil instead of butter.
This recipe is also so easy to make and the whole thing takes about half an hour to put together which makes it ideal for a weeknight!
It’s super customisable and so easy to make it your own by adding different veggies, extra proteins or anything else you fancy.
Mushroom Noodle Soup Ingredients
Vegetable Stock: This makes up the base of the soup so make sure you get a good quality brand or make your own.
Ginger and Garlic: Helps to give that delicious aromatic flavour.
Butter: I love using butter to fry the mushrooms and give them extra flavour but you could use olive oil if you prefer.
Wild Mushrooms: I used a pack of mixed wild mushrooms but you could go for your favourite kind or just go for chestnut if you prefer.
White Miso: This is one of my favourite ingredients for adding a kick of umami flavour.
Soba Noodles: These add such a lovely nuttiness.
Edamame Beans: I use frozen ones and just add them straight to the soup, they’re so good!
Boiled Eggs: There’s nothing better than a runny boiled egg on top of this soup.
