“HUG ME BROTHA” Miso Soup

This miso soup really does feel like a hug in a mug (or bowl). Ever since my newfound love of tofu miso soup has been on my mind because I never got to truly experience it since I always picked out the tofu! So after grocery shopping @traderjoes this week I finally had all the ingredients to make this delicious meal. And let me just say it was EXACTLY what I needed in the moment and more. My stomach was feeling funky all day and this cured it instantly and revved me up to play some tennis! This soup was make in one pot and only took me about 30 minutes to make. I would 100% recommend making extra though because it stores well and is so good the next day (The tofu really soaks in the flavors). Anyways if you feel like you need a hug give this recipe a try 🙂 hope you like it!



Miso Soup:
-miso soup broth from Trader Joe’s
-bok Choy
-scallions
-yellow onion
-firm tofu

Instructions:
1. Place the broth in the pot
2. Cut the white bottoms of the scallions (also known as green onion) into fine pieces and add to broth
3. Cut yellow onion and add to broth
4. Add 1 tbsp of minced ginger to the broth
5. Add 1 garlic clove chopped finely to the broth
6. Cut tofu into cubes and add to broth
10 MINUTES LATER WITH STOVE ON MEDIUM-HIGH
7. Add Stems of Bok choy
COOK FOR 5 mins
8. Add bok choy leaves

… and wala! You’re done! I probably made it into more steps than necessary but you get then gyst (add all ingredients to broth except Bok choy …) either way I hope you enjoyed and please give me a shoutout or a follow if you liked this recipe!

Okay, I know I said that I would start using more creative names for my recipes, but the only one that I could think of for this was “falla a fell(ow)” which doesn’t really make sense (it was supposed to be a play on the phrase follow a fellow lol). Anyways, this recipe is much easier to form than its title. With @traderjoes microwaveable falafel and by pre-cooking the quinua, sweet potato, chickpeas, and dressing. I highly recommend pre-preparing these components because they not only make the preparation of this meal more efficient, but they can also be used in many other recipes, many of which I have already posted about and will continue to post. Anyways, you can see the full recipe below! The instructions are pretty self explanatory, so they are not included, but you can ALWAYS comment / dm me if you have questions on how to prepare anything! .

Mexican Cauliflower Rice — today’s lunch was made in less than 5 minutes and in one pan, yet had so much flavor and spice that I needed to down a glass of milk (almond) to just finish it!! All of the base ingredients are non perishable items as well so you can buy them in bulk and make variations of this for weeks to come! See below for the recipe.

Ingredients:
-about 3 tablespoons of salsa (I used habanero, but less spicy is fine too)
-frozen vegetable mix (I used the corn, edamame, and red pepper mix from you guessed it, Trader Joe’s)
-cauliflower rice
-canned tomatoes (optional if you use mild salsa, then you could just double the salsa)
-black beans
*avocado (or my avocado, cilantro, lime aioli) would be AMAZING on top of this but I didn’t have any:(
*cilantro, avocado, lime Aioli recipe will come soon!

Pizza got a little burnt, but tbh I think it’s best that way. This one is NOT vegetarian, but I made it for my meat loving family and they claimed it was their favorite (surprise, surprise…). I sautéed the sausage and peppers in a pan while the pizza was cooking and once it was done I loaded everything on. Super simple, and a great staple. See below for the ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:
-pizza crust (mine is the frozen grilled one from Trader Joe’s)
-pesto
-chicken (or regular) sausage
-peppers and onions (I use the frozen grilled pepper and onion mix from Trader Joe’s)
-date paste (stir in with peppers and onions)
-olive oil
-red pepper flakes
-salt + pepper
