Mushroom Miso Soup with Soba Noodles

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.

  • Put the stock, ginger and garlic in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Put 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet and melt over a medium heat then add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until browned. Add the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of miso and the rest of the butter. Cook for a little longer until the mushrooms are browned and the butter and miso is melted.
