Who doesn’t need a vegan dinner recipe done in under 30 minutes?! Much like my vegan coconut curry soup, this vegan miso soup with noodles is the perfect healthy meal choice for busy families!

Ingredients

The best soups are those you can basically throw in what you like or have on hand. Much like my vegan minestrone and veggie and bean soup, with this vegan miso soup you can clean out your fridge and make an amazing meal all at once! Start the soup with miso paste and add all kinds of goodies!

Here is what you need for this miso soup with noodles:

  • Miso paste – customize this soup with the miso paste of your choosing. In our opinion the best miso paste for soup is chickpea miso (which is soy-free), but you can use any type you prefer such as white miso paste, red miso paste, etc.
  • Sesame oil – this adds an incredible taste to the miso veggie soup. Olive oil or another cooking oil can stand in its place but the flavor will be lacking. You can also swap it out for vegetable broth to make this recipe oil free.
  • Garlic – fresh garlic cloves will give you the best flavor, but jarred minced will work in a pinch.
  • Soy sauce or tamari – crucial for that salty umami taste, choose tamari for gluten free, and low sodium if needed.
  • Mushrooms – we love shiitake mushrooms the most, but any type works. Try cremini, baby bella, portobello, etc.
  • Carrots – you can shred your own, or save time by purchasing previously shredded carrots in the produce section.
  • Baby bok choy – this is now found in most grocery stores. If you must, you can try extra spinach or cabbage instead.
  • Green onions – these add crunch and an excellent fresh flavor.
  • Your favorite precooked noodles – choose from shiratake noodles, udon noodles, soba noodles, ramen noodles, mung bean noodles, or rice noodles. Make sure to select gluten-free if needed.
  • Extra firm tofu – while this is included in most miso soup recipes, you can leave it out if you prefer.
  • Spinach – another optional ingredient but adds some extra nutrients!

What to Serve with Miso Soup

Here are some ideas to serve alongside this vegan miso soup with noodles if you want to make a multi recipe meal:

Preparation Tips

  • Unsure of where to find miso paste?
    • You’ll definitely find it in your local Asian grocery stores, but it is also available at chain grocery stores and natural food stores.
    • Check the refrigerated section in the produce department by the tofu and tempeh. It may also be in the international aisle.
    • And, you can also always find miso paste online in a pinch!
  • Avoid soy by using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, just note it will have a sweeter end result.
  • Don’t overcook the soup! The flavor of the miso will not be as good, and the veggies, noodles, and tofu will break down too much.
  • Make this soup oil-free by leaving out the oil and using water or veggie broth for sautéing instead.

Storage Tips

  • Seal vegetable miso soup in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
    • To retain the best textures, store the tofu and noodles separately from the broth.
  • Freeze for up to 3 months.
    • If you want to freeze it, pour the soup in an airtight container and put a layer of plastic wrap over the top so it touches the top. This helps prevent freezer burn.
    • It is best to freeze it without the noodles and add them fresh when reheating.
    • When ready to eat, let it defrost on the counter.
  • Reheat slowly over low heat in a pot on the stove.
    • You can also microwave it.

Common Questions

Is miso soup vegan?

It can be, but it isn’t always! When it comes to miso soup the things you should look out for are seafood and egg. Many versions of miso soup use dashi (which can contain fish) to create the broth. Some even use chicken or fish stock for the broth.
Kombu dashi is made from seaweed and can be used to make a vegan miso soup. You can also simply mix miso paste with water, seasonings, and loads of other ingredients like this healthy miso soup recipe with vegetables!

Is miso vegan?

Yes, miso itself is vegan. The Japanese condiment is made with soybeans, salt, koji, and occasionally other ingredients to create a flavorful fermented paste. By making miso noodle soup from miso paste you can ensure the recipe is entirely vegan!

Is miso soup vegetarian?

Similar to above, sometimes yes. Make sure you’re enjoying vegetarian miso soup by asking if there are any ingredients you’d like to avoid.

How healthy is miso soup?

Miso soup is a great addition to a healthy diet. It can be filled with a variety of veggies which is an important part of a wholesome meal. Miso is also fermented and very soothing to your belly and provides your digestive system with good bacteria.

What does miso taste like?

Miso features an umami flavor. It is salty and savory, a bit tangy, and some kinds of miso are slightly sweet.

What is miso soup made of?

Miso soup can have a variety of ingredients, but there are only a few basics that you find in every recipe. Water and miso are the base. The type of miso can vary, but when mixed with water it makes a delicious soothing broth.

Instructions 

  • Mix ½ cup of the water (make sure it is warm) with the miso paste until the miso is dissolved. Set aside.

  • Saute garlic in sesame oil or water in a soup pot over medium heat until soft, about 2-3 minutes.

  • Add the soy sauce/tamari, mushrooms, carrots, bok choy, and onions into the pot. Cook until the veggies are softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Add the rest of the water and tofu (if using). Bring to a boil, about 5 minutes.

  • Add in the water miso mix, noodles and spinach (if using). Cook until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.

Notes

  • You can sauté the garlic in a little bit of water if you are avoiding oil.
  • I used chickpea miso for this soup, it’s a good option for a soy free version. Miso paste can be found at any health food store and some regular grocery stores.
  • If you use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce it will have a sweeter end result.
  • If noodles aren’t already cooked, make sure to cook them according to package directions
