Author Notes: When I've been travelling too long, when I'm on my own, when I need to eat something that isn't white stodge but still want some comfort in a bowl, this is what I turn to. The courgette ribbons are sneakily made with a vegetable peeler, giving all the slippery appeal of noodles, without the bulk. —Tori Haschka
Serves: 1, but easily doubles, quadruples etc
milliliters hot water
tablespoon Miso paste
pound skinless, boneless salmon fillet
handful baby spinach leaves
pound silken tofu (optional)
- Bring the water to the boil. Add the miso paste . Turn down the heat to a gentle simmer.
- Cut the salmon into thumb sized pieces. Add them to the miso in the pot.
- Using a vegetable peeler create ribbons of zucchini. Add these mock noodles and a handful of baby spinach to the miso and the salmon.
- When the salmon is just cooked through by the gentle heat of the soup, ladle it all into a bowl.
- Cut the silken tofu into pieces the size of playing dice and float them through the soup.
