Ingredients for vegan miso soup, miso paste, vegetable broth, tofu, nori, green onions and soy sauce

With just a few weeks left this winter, this Vegan Miso Soup is a must try. We promise you will absolutely fall in love with this recipe.

Miso soup has always been a favorite of mine when going out to eat growing up. If it was on the menu, you better believe I was going to order it. Finding a vegan-friendly miso soup at a traditional Japanese restaurant can sometimes be a challenge as many recipes include fish, which doesn’t make it suitable for vegans. Thankfully, this soup can easily be veganized by omitting the fish flakes.

This recipe is perfect to make in a large batch and portion out through the week or to serve to your family on one of these cold winter evenings. With just a handful of ingredients that can be found at almost any grocery store and 15 minutes of your time, you are well on your way to enjoying some delicious Miso Soup. Keep in mind that this is not a traditional miso soup recipe, but our quick interpretation of this dish!

To make the soup a bit more filling, we added some soba noodles (you can also use rice noodles if you are gluten-free) and some steamed curly kale. You can really add any additional vegetables or greens that you want, the miso soup makes the perfect base for a hearty soup recipe.
