Originally, I wanted to call this soup "miso soup with a whole lotta stuff," since that certainly fit the description, but something about that name did not quite gel with me, and really lotta is not even a word. I decided to title it Miso Soup with Thin Noodles, but even though the name is shorter (and perhaps just a little obvious), it can't deny "the stuff" that's in there. Packed with tofu, shitaki mushrooms, carrots, spinach, and some subtle flavors (red pepper flakes, ginger, chives, and onions) to create a hearty, yet healthy Asian-inspired soupy. For the miso itself, I used a recipe from La Fuji Mama that I mentioned in last weeks soup recipe exchange and from there just started adding the "whole lotta stuff," which is quite the beautiful thing about creating a miso soup. If you wish, it can be left alone or joined by the company of many ingredients. Enjoy this verison or use it as a base to create one all your own!
