This delicious pairing of miso soup and salad is perfect for a meatless monday inspired lunch! It’s super easy to pack up as a healthy, fermented, bento-on-the-go lunch if you’d prefer! Just pack your miso soup in a tight mason jar, and re-heat at work. xx ck

Miso Soup and Salad Combo

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

For the miso soup:

4 cups water

3 tablespoons miso paste (see the sidebar, below)

1 cup firm tofu cubes (about 1/2 of a 14-ounce package)

5 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced on a diagonal

For the miso salad:

2 tablespoons light mayonnaise or vegannaise

1 tablespoon miso paste (preferably red)

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 head tender lettuce (like Bibb or Boston; about 4 cups)

1 large carrot, trimmed, peeled, and grated on the large holes of a box grater

1 small cucumber, semi-peeled (so it’s striped), halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise

1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced

One 14-ounce package firm tofu, drained, halved and sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch thick pieces

Directions

To make the soup, bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the miso and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer the soup gently (don’t boil) for 5 minutes and then add the tofu and turn off the heat. Cover to keep warm while you make the salad.

Whisk the mayonnaise, miso paste, and rice wine vinegar together in a small bowl. In a large bowl toss the lettuce with the carrots and cucumbers. Divide the salad among 4 plates. Top with a few avocado slices and a few pieces of tofu and drizzle with some dressing. Divide the soup among4 bowls and sprinkle with the scallions. Serve both for a killer soup and salad combo!
