I love this miso noodle soup!! It is full of goodness and it is one super (I refrained from saying souper) speedy recipe. There is something about broth style soups that give you that ‘feel good’ factor. They feel nourishing and comforting. Perfect for when you need a great big food hug! This was a bit of an experiment for me really as I had just bought some miso because I had heard it’s something us vegans should eat but I had never tried it before. Miso is a paste made from fermented soya beans and it’s a great source of iron, calcium, potassium, B vitamins and protein.

It’s getting to that time of year when you can swap horror stories between your friends about the cold you have, or the bug you caught and it’s beyond tempting to wrap yourself in cotton wool and hide away for the winter and avoid all germs!

Over time this can begin to compromise your immune system. No wonder we get ill more in the winter. So as it’s autumn now, it’s a great time to start to strengthen our bodies for the oncoming cold and flu season. So today I bring you a warming and comforting, immune boosting soup that is cleverly parcelled up as a food treat! Yum! So, I can’t just throw around words like ‘immune boosting’ without a full explanation as to what each ingredient can do for you, so here is why this soup is your weapon […]
