Not to mention, her photography is otherworldly! So listen in!

Leslie Cerier’s Miso Vegetable Ramen Noodle Soup
Chilly day! Perfect lunch is a miso ramen noodle soup. Today, the broth got its flavor from local organic ginger and wakame seaweed. All year round, I mix and match seasonal veggies for infinite varieties of miso soup. Often in the spring and summer, I will just add a quick cooking green such as bok choy. Today, being winter, I cooked local, organic, sweet parsnips and carrots from my organic winter CSA*. Sliced thin cooks quickly.

Feel free to use other kinds of mellow and aged organic misos, seasonal root and green leafy vegetables, and different varieties of gluten-free ramen noodles for infinite variety and just because we can. Here is my recipe for a deeply nourishing and filling miso ramen noodle soup. Continue reading
