  • 3 - 4 cups water [750 - 1000 ml]
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger or 1 inch cube of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 10 cm square kombu
  • 2 - 3 lime leaves
  • 1 small cluster oyster mushroom or a small handful of other mushrooms of choice, sliced
  • 75 g rice noodles [2.6 oz]
  • 1 bok choy sliced in halves or small pieces
  • 1/2 carrot sliced into ribbons (using the vegetable peeler)
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter or peanut-free substitute (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Wedge of lemon for garnish


  • Add the water, lime leaves, kombu and minced ginger to a pot.
  • While the water is coming to a simmer, prepare the vegetables.
  • Make the peanut butter sauce mix:
  • In a small bowl, mix the miso paste, peanut butter (or peanut butter alternative), soy sauce and a little water to a smooth even mixture.
  • Add in the noodles to the pot of water.
  • Add the mushrooms. Simmer for about 3 minutes, then add the bok choy. Simmer for another 2 – 3 minutes, then turn off the heat.
  • Stir in the peanut butter and miso mixture. Mix well.
  • Arrange everything into a bowl. Top with the carrot ribbons and a wedge of lemon. Serve immediately.
  • If you prefer you can cook the carrot together with the noodles but I like the raw crunchy freshness that it adds to this soup.
