Despite warming temperatures and sunny, 70°F days here in San Diego…I’m still always craving hot, steamy soup. It never truly gets cold here, but all year long, I eat soup like it does. Especially right now – I’ve been battling a cold, and this Vegetable Miso Noodle Soup has been on repeat.
This soup is a magical healing soup, I swear! It’s my ultimate go-to for sick days. Because it’s a nutritional power house full of vegetables, ginger, garlic, and miso, it helps kick your immune system right back into gear. Did I mention it’s also incredibly delicious?

This Vegetable Miso Noodle Soup is SO easy to make. It takes under 30 minutes and is super filling and delicious. You can also customize with what you’ve got on hand. Let’s chat about what you need to make it!
What you need to make Vegetable Miso Noodle Soup
- Toasted Sesame Oil: I love the delicious savory aroma and flavor of this oil! We use it here to saute our aromatics in.
- Green Onion: we split the green parts and the white parts for this recipe – sauteing the white parts, and saving the green parts to garnish at the end.
- Freshly Grated Ginger: the ginger adds a beautiful spice to the soup and smells so good! I always add extra when I’m sick.
- Fresh Garlic: it’s garlic! Need I say more? Ditto the above about adding more when I’m sick.
- Vegetable Broth: any vegetable broth will do (or even a meat broth if you’re not vegan) but I like using mushroom broth best here.
- Miso Paste: this adds so much beautiful umami flavor! Either white or chickpea miso works here – I typically have chickpea miso on hand.
- Vegetables: any combination of your favorite veggies works well for this recipe! This varies with what I’ve got around, but my favorite add-ins are mushrooms, edamame, carrots, & broccoli. A veggie stir fry mix works well, too.
- Tamari: this wheat-free version of soy sauce adds an extra depth of flavor. You could use regular soy sauce or coconut aminos if preferred!
- Maifun Brown Rice Noodles: These are my favorite noodles for this soup! They’re thin, similar to angel hair pasta, and cook SO quickly. Any rice noodles will do the trick, though. You could also skip the rice noodles and add vegetable noodles, too!
I hope that you love this quick & easy recipe for Vegetable Miso Noodle Soup as much as I do! It’s a staple in my house and always simmering on my stove on cooler days. I love having a container prepped and ready in the fridge for a quick lunch, and it is my go-to for sick days. I swear it has magical healing powers!
Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts if you decide to try it!

- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- ½ cup chopped green onion, keep the greens and whites separated
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups vegetable broth, I like using mushroom broth
- ¼ cup white or chickpea miso paste
- 2 to 3 cups veggies of your choice (I used 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced, 1/2 cup small broccoli florets, 2 fresh carrots, peeled & thinly sliced, & 1/2 cup edamame beans – you can also just buy a stir fry veggie mix)
- 2 to 4 tablespoons tamari, to taste (coconut aminos or soy sauce can also be used)
- 4 ounces maifun brown rice noodles (half of the 8 ounce package)
- Heat a medium soup pot or saucepan to medium heat. Add the toasted sesame oil and when it’s shimmering, add the white parts of the green onion, ginger, and garlic. Cook for one minute, and then add the broth. Bring to a boil.
- In the meantime, place the miso paste into a small bowl, add a little hot water or broth and whisk until smooth. This will ensure it doesn’t clump. Set aside.
- Add the veggies of your choice to the pot and simmer for 15 minutes, or until tender. When your veggies are almost tender, add the noodles. Cook for about two minutes (or however long your package says).
- Once the noodles are tender, remove from heat, add green onion tops, miso mixture, and tamari and stir to combine.
- Taste and add more miso or tamari if desired. Serve hot. Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired.
