Hearty Miso Soup with Quinoa

Submitted by: EDEROSIER01

Introduction

A filling but low-fat, and light meal of vegetables, grains and miso broth. I haven't used miso mery much so this is probably very non-traditional, but it hit the spot.

Ingredients

    6 cups water
    1 stalk lemongrass, cut into chunks
    2 T dried mushrooms
    1/3 cup uncooked quinoa
    1/2 cup edamame, shelled
    1/2 cups sliced leek (or scallion or onions)
    1 inch ginger, peeled and minced
    1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
    1 cup thinly sliced bell pepper
    6 tbsp red miso

Directions

-Boil 4 cups water )not included in ingredients), add quinoa to boiling water. When quinoa is half-cooked, add edamame beans. When both are fully cooked, drain and set aside.
-Bring the 6 cups water to a simmer, add the lemongrass and dried mushrooms. Simmer until other ingredients are ready, then remove the lemongrass and mushrooms. You can chop the pieces of mushrooms and add back to the soup if you like.
-Saute the leeks and ginger in the oil until translucent. Add the sesame seeds and other vegetables.Saute until done to your preference. I like lightly cooked.
-To finish: set aside 3 cups of broth and add the miso to disolve. Meanwhile, add the reserved quinoa / edamame and the sauteed vegetables to the broth (minus the lemongrass) and simmer together for five minutes. Turn off the heat and add the reserved broth and miso mixture. Serve immediately.

  • It was good. Next time, i will put more miso paste and less quinoa. I didn't have lemongrass, i put lime zest instead.

  • Silly question, is the quinoa a dried good product like oats or is it a fresh product like kale? Sorry, I've never used it before. This recipe sounds delicious & I can't wait to try it. - 9/10/09

  • I have just discovered quinoa and I think it will make a very good addition to Miso soup. MMMMM...........I would make it again. I used 1/2 sweet potato because i couldn't find the edamame. I would make this again. - 6/28/09
