Winter Day Easy Veggie Soup

I did pots of chicken noodle and veggie soup yesterday, and my house smelled wonderful.  A friendly tweep asked me to post the recipe for the veggie noodle, so here it is – though it’s pretty easy 🙂

2 carrots or 1.5 cup baby carrots, bitesize
2 stalks celery, sliced
2/3 block of firm tofu, chopped into small cubes
2 cans veggie broth (or 3 cups if you make your own)
4 veggie bullion cubes
4 cups water
black pepper to taste
1/2 lb rotini or other pasta
4 T miso paste

Put veggies (add others as you like – I often do onions or greens as well, but didn’t this time!), tofu, and broth in a large pan.  Bring to a boil.  Add bullion.  After bullion dissolves, gradually add additional water.  Bring back to a boil and then reduce to quick simmer until carrots are well cooked.  Add pasta and boil until done to taste.  Pepper (you likely won’t need salt) during this stage.  When pasta is almost done, add miso.  Stir in and then reduce heat to med/low.  Simmer 5 minutes and serve!
