Mellow Yellow… Miso Soup

Mellow Yellow: that’s just one of those songs that sends you straight to a groovy headspace, isn’t it…

Well check this out: it’s ‘Bananas in Pajamas’ doing their thang to this tune of yore. Click here to experience dancing bananas on YouTube. If this doesn’t make you feel a little relaxed and silly – well, then – check out LOLcats, or make a sculpture out of play dough, okay?

This evening I made some soup with mello white miso. This flavor is much milder than the barley variety (it also happens to be less expensive – I think the barley version might be more healthy, though.) I like them both – they’re just for different moods. You might like them both, as well.

I dissolved the mello white miso in the warm soup that I had made, using:
and a Few Dashes of Olive Oil

I set the vegetables (sans tofu) in the water until it came to a rolling boil, and then simmered it with the lid on for about 25 mins on low. I added the tofu cubes right before I took it off the heat. At the point when it was off the heat and stopped boiling, I added the miso (to save the probiotics.)

I actually didn’t really need much soup, after polishing off the rest of the spinach pie, which I had been pecking away at since Sunday.

What’s your favorite mellow food? (You can take that to mean food which is mellow itself, or food that makes you feel mellow…)

  1. mmmmm sometimes vegetable soup is exactly what the body needs ❤

    mellow foods are sweet potatoes, stir-fries, and soups 🙂 they're all mellow foods and they mellow me out as well



  2. I didn’t have much luck with white miso last time I tried it. I think I just didn’t add enough or something, but your bowl looks yummy.


  3. […] started off with some miso soup, made with cabbage, turnips, whole garlic cloves, and mello white miso. Miso is known for its probiotics, and I don’t think I had been having enough of it this […]
