If you have a cold like I do right now, you gotta make this soup. It's just a simple variation of miso, but something about it is so nourishing and comforting. You just make the normal broth, then add soba noodles, tofu, spinach, scallions, CILANTRO and RED PEPPER FLAKES. I think it's the last two ingredients that make it special. The cilantro is refreshing and the red pepper will get your congestion moving. Gross.
The only change I made was that I used no-chicken broth instead of water. Made it a little heartier, and it's good for those hippy-dippy organic brands of miso paste that aren't salty enough.
