Spicy Miso Soup

Miso is so good for you! it's an immunity booster so it is great to have when you are feeling a little under the weather or in the morning as a nice little boost. I love spicy and cayenne is the perfect pepper- it helps with your metabolism/digestion, it warms you up, and good for circulation (among other things). 

3 cups water
2 Tbsp White Mild Miso
1 medium Zucchini (courgette)
Rice Noodles
Soy Sauce
Cayenne Pepper powder
Firm-Extra Firm Tofu (optional)

In a small sauce pan, add cayenne pepper (to taste/level of spiciness desired), drizzle soy sauce (1/2 tablespoon), and the miso. Pour the water on top and turn on stove to a high heat. Break down the miso so there are no chunks just a smooth broth. If you want to add tofu, cut it into small squares and add it when the water starts to boil (wait 2mins before adding the noodles). Add desired amount of rice noodles- I use chow fun size but pad thai size work well too. While the noodles cook, chop the zucchini (courgette) into small fourths or halves. After the noodle have had time to cook- about 5mins- add the zucchini (courgette) and let cook for 2-3mins. Take off the heat and enjoy!
