Talk about instant comfort! A handful of veggies from the salad bar and a few chunks of baked tofu turn a package of miso soup mix into a soul-satisfying meal. Just make sure the soup brand you buy contains no fish ingredients (often listed as powdered bonito or bonito flakes).
Combine miso soup, 1½ cups water, broccoli, mushrooms, and ginger, if using, in medium-size microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high 3 minutes. Add spinach and tofu, and microwave 30 seconds more. Discard ginger slices before eating.
