I know I have already posted a miso soup recipe, but what else can you make when you have tatsoi and carrots? This recipe makes a heartier soup with the addition of the soba noodles. This soup can still be made in about 30 minutes, and makes 4 servings.
Cook the noodles as indicated on the package. The ones I bought took 4-5 minutes in boiling water. Drain and set aside.
Saute the carrots and onions in a stockpot over medium heat for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the tatsoi, rice vinegar, stock and water. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer, and cover for 10 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, heat a pan and add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Toss in chopped tofu, and season with sesame seeds and curry powder. Cook the tofu for 5-10 minutes, until slightly browned.
Add the tofu, miso soup mix and scallions into the soup. Cook for 2 minutes, seasoning with additional salt or pepper as needed.
Serve with a dash of sriracha to add a nice kick.
