A powerhouse ingredient such as deeply flavored red miso paste (instead of the milder white or yellow varieties) is the key to this super-easy soup. Just don’t boil it—boiling brings out a bitter taste in miso and kills the healthful probiotic enzymes that are so good for you.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup cubed firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup chopped winter greens (such as spinach or chard)

Preparation

Simmer broth in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add tofu, greens and green onions, reduce heat to medium, and cook about 5 minutes, or until greens are just wilted.
