Turmeric, ginger and black pepper give this miso broth a zingy flavor. Kombu is a source of umami and adds trace minerals that are very valuable.


  • 8 cups water
  • 1 piece kombu
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup white miso
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari soy sauce
  • 4 cups broccoli florets GreenStar Basics
  • 14 oz. extra-firm tofu, drained and cubed GreenStar Basics
  • 6 oz. soba noodles


  1. Put a medium pot of water on to boil to cook the soba noodles.
  2. In a large pot, place the water and kombu on low heat. Let the kombu infuse for 20 minutes before raising the heat to medium and bringing to a low simmer. Remove the kombu with tongs and discard.
  3. Add the carrot, ginger, and garlic to the simmering stock and cook for about 4-5 minutes. In a small bowl, stir the miso, turmeric, black pepper, red pepper flakes, rice vinegar, and tamari to make a paste, and whisk into the soup.
  4. Add the broccoli and tofu and stir in gently, letting cook for 2 minutes until broccoli is tender.
  5. Cook the soba according to package directions, about 4 minutes. Divide soba evenly among four bowls and ladle soup over the noodles.
