Midweek Munchies & Yoga Soup

This week, I decided I'd post my recipe for Yoga Soup - so named because I eat it after yoga class. It's very fast and filling and (I think) healthy. It is also the only recipe I have submitted to VegWeb...

Yoga Soup
  • 2 vegan broth cubes (veg, mushroom, fake chicken, etc)
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup shelled frozen edamame
  • 4-6 vegan frozen Asian dumplings or pot stickers
  • equivalent of 1 cup of rice noodles/rice stick
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli
  • handful of chopped dark greens: spinach, kale, or chard

    Optional additions:
  • soy sauce or tamari
  • hot chili oil, sesame oil
  • lime juice
  • ginger - pureed, thinly sliced or minced

Boil the water on high in a medium sized pot and dissolve the cubes in the water.

Add the edamame and dumplings. Stir in a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce or tamari and the ginger.

Bring water to boil again. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the broccoli. Cook for another minute at medium heat.

Turn off the heat and add the rice noodles, making sure they are completely covered by liquid. Keep the pot on the burner to keep the soup hot, but not at a boil.

Let the pot sit for about 10 minutes on the burner or until the noodles are fully cooked, adding chopped greens to the pot to steam for the last few minutes.

Ladle into bowls, topping with chili oil, sesame oil and a squeeze of lime juice.

other additions: - thinly sliced or shredded carrot - miso (added to the bowl of soup) - sesame seeds sprinkled on top - chopped scallions - green beans instead of, or in addition to, broccoli

Serves: 2, Preparation time: 15 minutes

I had some steamed edamame in their pods a few weeks ago, just a little salt on them. Yum. Hopefully I can find some fresh around here, I only see them frozen...
