Immune Boosting Miso Soup

 As the weather gets colder everyone seems to start coming down with some type of upper respiratory infection. I believe food can be one of our best forms of medicine and prevention so I enjoy regularly making this version of miso soup. This is a lot more hearty than the typical miso soup. I pack lots of vegetables and whatever asian mushrooms I can find in the store. Asian mushrooms are known for their immune enhancing properties and when you add lots of vegetables to increase your vitamins and anti-oxidants you have a great combination. As you sit down at lunch to eat visualize you immune system getting stronger and your body becoming healthier. By the way this tastes great too!
This soup is very easy to make. For a quick demo go to: Dr. Lane's Kitchen


4 1⁄2 cups water
6 tablespoons Miso and Easy Paste 

String carrots, about 1/3 cup
3 green onions chopped
Pinch of turmeric and black pepper
2 -5 garlic gloves chopped
Handful of spinach
Handful or 2 of Asian mushrooms Package of hard tofu cut up in squares


Cook above ingredients, except the tofu. I often start with the carrots first as they take a little longer to soften. When all the vegetables are tender, add the tofu to warm and then enjoy.
