Chicken miso soup

Introduce flavours of the east into your home with this delicate yet filling soup. Quick-cooking ramen noodles reduce time spent near the stove, perfect for families in a rush to get out the door.


  • 1 900 mL box low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • 2 tablespoons white or yellow miso paste
  • 1/3 cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1-2 individual packages ramen noodles (depending on how noodle-y you like your soup)
  • ¼ cup scallion, thinly sliced


  1. In a large saucepan, bring the stock, water and miso to a boil.
  2. Stir in the mushrooms, chicken, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic powder and ginger. Simmer for 15 minutes. Adjust seasonings if needed (the miso paste and soy sauce run on the salty side).
  3. Add the noodles and cook until soft, 2-5 minutes.
  4. Top with scallions and serve.
  5. Makes 2-6 servings, depending on size.


Get adventurous with ingredients. Instead of chicken and mushrooms, try tofu and seaweed or shrimp and spinach.

    1. If you have a thermos or another container meant to keep foods warm, it can be warmed up at home, put into a thermos and kept warm until break time for lunch.
