It’s sweltering here. I’m pretty sure I’ve started every blog post lately complaining about the heat but it’s unbearable. I was in desperate need of something light and hydrating, so what better than a nourishing miso-esque soup?
You will need:
A few cloves of chopped garlic
Some ginger (I was quite generous but depends of you)
Thinly sliced mushrooms
A few tablespoons of soy sauce
Basically whatever green veg you have will work, try and get a good combination of flavours and textures!
3 large spiralised courgettes, I used a grater for mine…
About a litre of boiled water of vegetable stock
Chop up your broccoli (the bigger the chunks, the better) and red pepper, then add that and your spinach to the boiling water. In the meantime, spiralise your courgettes!
Leave your noodles to one side. You could add them in too but they might soften quite a lot, I personally wanted mine to have more strength.
I made a bed of noodles then poured the soup over the top. What I love about this is you feel how nourishing and detoxifying the greens are, especially when you’re feeling lethargic and heavy.
Using courgette instead of real noodles still gives body to the meal but without the heaviness or bloating, and pushes out the flavours even more. It would be so easy to pair with other dishes too. If I had more vegetables and herbs I would’ve made some rice paper rolls too. Perfect for summer!
