Elyse Kopecky’s Feel-Good Miso Soup Recipe – Women’s Running


This mineral-rich soup is soothing, nourishing, and loaded with digestion and immune-supporting ingredients from the seaweed, garlic, ginger, mushrooms, and miso. (It’s also vegan and gluten-free.) To make it a meal, add shredded chicken or cubes of firm tofu and/or serve with a side of rice. 

I especially enjoy this restorative soup after a long run when I crave salt and hydration. The broth soothes my digestive system before eating a big meal.
