Miso Soup with Bok Choy and Mushrooms
5 cups water
1 cup baby bella mushrooms, sliced
Leaves of 1 large stalk of bok choy
3 tbsp white miso paste
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Optional: 1 tsp to 1 tbsp red pepper flakes (depending on how spicy you’d like it)
Boil water in a large pot. Place mushrooms in boiling water then simmer for 5 minutes. This will create a mushroom broth. Place the white miso paste in a small bowl and add some of the broth into the bowl. Whisk the miso paste and broth together until smooth, then add to pot. Add bok choy and two cloves of minced garlic. Cook on low-medium heat for 5 minutes. Turn off heat. Pour into bowls, add remaining garlic, and sprinkle red pepper flakes on top if you would like it spicy. Enjoy! Makes 2-3 servings.
