This is absolutely my favorite comfort food right now. Eating it has a wonderful calming effect on me. It's also super easy to make and the ingredients are all things that are easy to keep in stock.
The recipe is adapted from Super Cleanse: Detox Your Body for Long-Lasting Health and Beauty by Adina Niemerow.
3 cups water (preferably filtered)
1 crushed garlic clove
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
juice of half a lemon
2 tablespoons red miso
a few drops of sesame oil
vegetables of your choice (I use sliced mushrooms and small cubes of tofu)
Bring the water to a boil and add garlic, ginger, and vegetables. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and add lemon juice, miso, and sesame oil. Stir to dissolve the miso and serve.
