miso mushroom tofu || soba noodle soup

Follow my blog with Bloglovinsoba noodle miso soup

yesterday was sunday, so  i was ready for some football + ready for some soup.

soup is the ultimate comfort food. fun fact about me? sushi is actually my greatest comfort food. super weird, right? it could be 7 am + sushi sounds delicious.

when i decided to stop eating fish, sushi was something i worried, ok panicked, that i going to miss. i soon realized it was the flavors that i loved so much. the spicy wasabi, strong ginger + oh so salty soy sauce – say that ten times- was enough to make vegan vegetable rolls satisfying. 

but if you’re a sushi lover, chances are you love miso soup as well. this recipe is my take on miso soup, but i kicked it up a notch + made a meal through the addition of mushrooms, spinach + soba noodles. 

soba noodles are buckwheat noodles that pack a decent protein punch. if you’re not a tofu fan- the noodle soup could stand alone. soba noodle soup kalein it

 looking for the hot sauce i used? it’s called fix + can be found here. it’s the best siracha style hot sauce, + the ingredient list is short, unprocessed, simple + clean.
