Miso Soup with Chicken and Brussel Sprouts
This is very quick soup, it smells and tastes wonderful. Originally, I planned on using a different noodle, but these are the only noodles I had in the cupboard.
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 glove garlic, grated
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes to taste
1-1/2 tablespoons miso paste
1/4 teaspoon white of scallion
1/3 teaspoon sliced green of scallion
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoon seaweed
1/4 cup brussel sprouts, finely shredded
1/2 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
noodles, such as harusame, ramen.
Cook noodles as directed. drain and cool while prepping soup.
Over medium-low heat, heat oils; saute garlic, ginger, chili flakes until heated. Sir in miso paste, warm slightly, then add chicken broth and soy sauce. Add brussel sprouts and seaweed and bring to slow boil. Reduce to simmer until vegetables are tender.
Add noodles to bowl and add soup. Top with cooked chicken and a few more scallion slices.
