When you’ve got a stomach bug what is your go to food? My mom always gave me chicken noodle soup as a kid and I stuck with it as an adult. Unfortunately as a vegan chicken is off the menu and I had lost my ‘sick comfort food’. So it was time to think of something as guess what…. I got sick the other day.

Ugh. I HATE getting sick to my stomach. It’s the worst. Feeling too bad to do anything when you try to but feeling fine when you sit still. It’s like the ‘sick’ is tricking you.  “Oh you think you feel ok do you? Go ahead and try to get something accomplished.” Then when you do it pounces and laughs at you. Okay okay maybe I’m being a little overly dramatic but I bet you know what I mean.

I still wanted something kind of brothy with a little bit of substance but not too much. I wanted something similar to my beloved go to sick food. I decided on Miso soup. Its simple, easy, salty, and not too heavy. PERFECTION!

So without further ado here is my version of Miso soup.

Ingredients

2 cups of water

4 tsp miso paste

Hand full of spinach

3 green onion

3-4 mushrooms

1/3 block of tofu

Directions

Pour water into a medium pot. Set heat on high. Add miso paste and bring water to a boil.

While the water is heating up rinse and destem a few leaves of spinach.

THINLY slice the onions and mushrooms. This is supposed to be a mostly broth based soup so you don’t want the ingredients to be thick or heavy.

Cut up the tofu into small cubes.

Add the ingredients into the pot and let everything heat up for a few minutes. Turn off the heat and serve yourself a bowl of delicious miso soup.
