Quick Recipes: Tofu and Rice Noodle Miso Soup Bowl

quick and easy plant based meals

Hey ya’ll. I’m finally ready to start sharing some of my favorite plant-based recipes with you! I’m starting that with this quick and easy Tofu and miso soup bowl. The last couple of months, I have contemplated which direction I want to go with this blog. I know now that I want it to reflect everything I believe and stand for. Many of you know that while I am not a vegan, I eat a plant-based diet (Learn the difference here). I have been eating a plant-based diet since I challenged myself to go vegan for a week. After that one week challenge, I noticed some incredible changes in my health and body. With what I observed, I knew that there was no way I could go back to eating the same things again. And so my journey to plant-based eating began.

Almost two years later, I am still going strong and even more confident in my decisions today. I’ve done my best sharing my meals with those who follow me on instagram. Now, I think It’s time to share it here for longevity and for easier access to those who ask me for recipes.

Without any further rambling, Here’s the first recipe for you this year. A quick and Tofu and miso soup bowl which I enjoyed with rice noodles. This meal takes less than 20 minutes to make and is so filling and healthy. It is also a good source of protein and probiotics, thanks to the tofu and miso paste.

Feel free to make this oil-free if you’re a whole food plant-based eater, and adjust any ingredients to fit your dietary needs. You could also choose mushrooms for this recipe if you prefer. And also, use any other veggies you like. This is so flexbile, you can make it anyway you taste buds and preference leads you.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did.

Here it goes.
