  • 4 cups 1 L unsalted chicken broth (sub veggie broth to make it vegan)
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste
  • 4 oz 120 grams ramen (discard seasoning packet) or instant wheat noodles
  • 2 cups quartered bok choy
  • 1 block soft tofu cubed
  • 2 green onions dark and light green parts only, sliced crosswise,


  • Bring the broth to a boil in a medium pot.  Place the miso paste in a bowl, and whisk 1/2 cup of the hot broth into it until no lumps remain, then stir it back into the pot.  Add the noodles and bok choy.  Cook until noodles are tender, 2-3 minutes. Gently stir in tofu and green onions.
