miso, mushroom & udon noodle soup

I’ve been quiet over here.  I’v been immersing myself in the Mondo Beyondo experience and feeling a tad overwhelmed by my own dreams. It’s okay though. I feel I am growing.  Trying to let go of unwanted baggage and opening myself up to the unknown.   Scary, but at the same time very exciting. I am learning so much in this e-course, mostly about myself and how to manage my fears, my anxiety, my critical voice.  It’s everything I expected and so much more.

I’m also reading my new books having a hard time focusing on much else.  My cold house (my husband will laugh- he’s warm, I’m cold) is making me sluggish, slow to move. I think I inherited a cold gene. I just want to sit with a book and my layers and layers of clothes–not moving–which is exactly what I SHOULDn’t be doing.  But, I’m keeping warm with my tea and some deeply warming soup.  Here is the recipe in case you need some warming up too.

Handful of dried wild mushrooms (Trader Joe’s has a great mix)
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped,
1 inch of peeled ginger root
1 tbsp mellow yellow Miso
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp onion powder
Udon noodles
1 handful of baby spinach leaves

Bring 4 cups water to a boil, add everything except noodles and spinach. Turn heat down to simmer, add noodles. Simmer for 8-12 minutes testing noodles for doneness. Remove ginger piece and add one handful of spinach. Simmer for 1 more minute. Serve & enjoy.

    That looks so good! Cold house: I’m with you on that one… My boyfriend is warm all the time, everyday, always. He still wears t-shirts and shorts at home and walks barefoot whereas I wear 3 layers of shirts/jumpers and woolen socks and sleep beneath 3 blankets. Plus we have underfloor heating in our living room! But no chance, I am cold. And I have a feeling that the rabbits are cold, too. And that is saying something =)
    I gave up on turning the heat up. I did one day and Sebastian thought about taking his t-shirt off. That’s not normal, is it??

    Thanks for sharing the soup recipe.
    Looks really good. Have you ever
    heard of O blood types needing to
    eat meat? I was watching a naturopath
    on TV and she mentioned that people
    with A blood types can go vegetarian.
    It is the oldest blood type. But the
    O blood types need meat.

    I am A and mostly eat vegetarian but I
    have some of brothers who are O.

    God Bless You and Yours!!!

    That looks so delicious. I had a craving for udon the other day, I might have to make a run to one of the local Asian markets. Thanks for sharing.
