Thinly sliced swiss chard, just a leaf or two, carrot slivers, shitake mushrooms, finely cut scallions, and small cubes of firm tofu simmered in water. Then, a couple of teaspoons of miso paste stirred in. Breakfast? It was for me and my daughter this morning.
I remember being a little girl at a friend’s house and just wanting tomato soup for breakfast. My hosts thought it was an odd choice but it hit the spot. While we are accustomed to particular breakfast foods like eggs and bagels, do you ever get a craving for soup in the morning? Especially on a cold morning this is a terrific way to start your day. Miso soup can be put together in 10-15 minutes. Just pull a few veggies out of the fridge, thinly slice and let simmer for a few minutes. It’s filled with healthy ingredients so why not listen to this craving? Fill up and warm up all at once.
