Serves 2
Total Time
25 Minutes
200g of Tenderstem broccoli
120g of shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp of miso paste
2 tbsp of maple syrup
1 handful of pak choi leaves
2 tbsp of light soy sauce
1 tbsp of rice wine vinegar
1l of vegetable stock, hot
1/2 a block of firm tofu, cut into 1cm cubes
2 tbsp of sesame oil
1 medium, red chilli, de-seeded and cut small
2 tbsp of ginger, minced
To garnish:
1 red chilli, sliced
1 tbsp of sesame seeds
3 spring onions, sliced thinly on an angle
1 handful of fresh coriander, to serve
Step 1

Pre-heat a griddle pan over a high heat and add a touch of oil. Grill the Tenderstem broccoli until charred – this should take around 2 minutes. Remove the Tenderstem broccoli from the pan.

Step 2

Pre-heat a large wok or saucepan over a high heat. Add the sesame oil. Wait for the pan to get very hot. When the pan is almost smoking throw in the minced ginger and chilli. Sauté for 1 minute before adding the tofu and shiitake mushrooms.

Step 3

Toss and stir the mixture whilst cooking for a further 2 minutes.

Step 4

Cook on the high heat for 30 more seconds.

Step 5

Turn the heat down low and add the vegetable stock, soy sauce, miso, rice wine vinegar and maple syrup. Let the soup simmer away for 5 minutes.

Step 6

Just before removing the saucepan or wok from the heat, throw in the pak choi and grilled Tenderstem broccoli. Once the pak choi is slightly wilted, remove the pan from the heat.

Step 7

Serve the soup straight away, topped with chilli, spring onion, sesame seeds and fresh coriander.
