Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Coat a stockpot or Dutch oven with olive oil, add garlic and ginger. Bring pot to medium heat while stirring to coat the ingredients with oil.
  2. Add carrots and onions, once again stirring to coat with oil. Cook until the carrots begin to soften and the onions begin to turn clear (5-10 minutes).
  3. Add vegetable stock to pot, bring to boil, immediately reduce heat to low. Add tofu, broccoli and mushrooms to pot, stir gently. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Taste the soup, add tamari sauce, taste again, add more tamari or salt and/or pepper to taste.
  5. Simmer soup on low for 10 minutes, ladle into bowls, garnish with shiso and serve.
Recipe Notes

~ If you don’t have shiso, use Thai basil or another herb of your choice, or perhaps microgreens.

~ You can substitute soy sauce for tamari sauce

~ Feel free to include additional greens and vegetables like kale, corn and tomatoes. I sometimes add peanuts.
