  • 1 tsp oil
  • 7 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 to 1.5 inch piece of ginger peeled and minced
  • 1/2 hot green chile optional
  • 1/2 cup grated or shredded carrots
  • 1/2 green or red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 7 oz 1/2 a block of tofu, cubed small
  • 2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 2.5 cups water or more, to preference
  • 1/2 tsp or more turmeric
  • 1 tsp apple cider or distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tsp or more sugar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt less or more to taste, depends on your miso
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper divided
  • 1 tbsp or more white mellow miso
  • scallions for garnish


  • Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and chile and cook until translucent. 4 mins.
  • Add the carrots and peppers and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add tofu and mix in. At this point you can also add in chopped veggies(chopped small) such broccoli.
  • Add water, 1/3 tsp black pepper and rest of the ingredients except miso and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer for 4 minutes. Then add the miso and mix in. Taste and adjust salt, sweet and tang(vinegar). Simmer for another few minutes.
  • Garnish with scallions and black pepper.



If you like a thicker soup, mix 1 tsp cornstarch in 1/4 cup cool water and mix into the simmering soup.
To make soy-free: use more veggies and/or chickpeas, or mushrooms. Use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and chickpea miso instead of white miso.
