Ingredients
  1. 3 cups shiitake or oyster mushrooms, sliced
  2. 2 tbsp soy sauce, preferably nama shoyu
  3. 1/2-1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  4. 3 tbsp miso, white or brown
  5. 1 x 1 inch cube fresh ginger root, peeled
  6. 1 garlic clove, peeled
  7. 3 cups water
  8. 1 scallion, chopped
Instructions
  1. Marinate mushrooms in soy sauce and 3 Tablespoons olive oil. Set aside to marinate (ideally for 30 minutes or more).
  2. Put miso, remaining olive oil, ginger, garlic, and water into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  3. Set to Variable 1.
  4. Turn on machine and slowly raise speed to Variable 10, then switch to High.
  5. Blend for 30 seconds for room temperature soup. Blend for 6-8 minutes for hot soup.
  6. To serve, pour equal portions of soup base into four bowls. Place marinated mushrooms and chopped scallions onto top of each bowl.
  7. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. Soup base with toppings will keep for one day. Soup base will keep for four days, and toppings will keep for two days in the fridge when stored separately. This recipe can be reduced by half and made in smaller containers.
  2. Additional Note: Soy sauce and miso contain a substantial amount of sodium. If this is a concern, look for reduced sodium soy sauce, or reduce the portion of each in the recipe. To compensate, try adding more ginger.
