With Love from Frances

Prep Time
5 minutes

Cooking Time
10 minutes

Total Time
15 minutes



– 2 Tbsp miso paste
– 80ml tamari (or soy sauce)
– 1 garlic clove, sliced
– 1 thumb of fresh ginger, sliced into small strips
– 3 red chilies, chopped
– 2 – 4 Tbsp coconut sugar/rice syrup
– 250ml water
– 250ml home-made or good quality vegetable stock
– 20 ml apple cider vinegar/ rice vinegar
– juice of half a lime/ small lemon/ grapefruit


1.) Place all ingredient into a medium sized saucepan.
2.) Heat on a low heat and stir occasionally.
3.) Simmer for 10 minutes and YOUR DONE. If you want to add any fillings, now is the time.

Note: Once you have your soup, you can add pretty much anything to it as a filling! I love adding;
– Firm tofu
– King Soba noodles (which you can cook in the soup)
– Edamame beans
– Fresh herbs like coriander and basil
– Mushrooms (oyster and shimeji are my favs)
– Baby spinach or bok choy
– Thai Beef Meat balls or Poached chicken, I usually have some sort of protein already prepped in the freezer, which makes cooking a lot easier when I am cooking for Dave and I and feeling lazy or when things are quite busy. Depending on what he feels like, I either cook/ heat it on the side or add it to the soup once I have dished my own, this style of cooking makes sharing meals with my  conscious carnivore SO EASY.
