Meatless Monday: Tofu and noodle soup


Today's Meatless Monday is another quick lunch idea.  

Tofu and noodle soup
Serves 3-4
You will need 

1 tbsp sesame seed oil
1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 medium carrot, julienned
1 rounded tsp miso paste
70g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
wedge Chinese cabbage, shredded
400g pack organic firm tofu, cut into small squares
2 tbsp tamari
150g rice noodles (3 bundles)



Heat the oil and sweat the onion and carrot for 3 minutes on a medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.  Add the shiitake mushrooms and cook a further minutes. Transfer to a saucepan and add 750ml water and the miso paste.  Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.  

Meanwhile heat the tofu in the tamari, stirring until all the tamari is absorbed.  
Add the noodles to the vegetable broth and simmer for 5-10 minutes, adding the Chinese cabbage for the last few minutes.  Stir in the tofu and heat through.

Divide between 3 bowls.

Enjoy
