Miso Udon Noodle Soup with Nasoya TofuPlus

I recently received coupons to try Nasoya’s TofuPlus, a line of their tofu that is fortified with vitamins B2, B6, B12, D and calcium. While I frequently use Nasoya’s other tofu varieties, I had never tried this one. I recently used the TofuPlus in a miso soup, so I didn’t need to go through the process of squeezing out the excess water in tofu like I would if I were pan frying it.

Ingredients:

2 containers miso ginger soup

1 bag pre-cut broccoli florets

1 container sliced white mushrooms

1 package fresh udon noodles

1 package Nasoya TofuPlus, cut into cubes

Bring miso soup to a boil. Add in broccoli, mushrooms and tofu. Cook until broccoli and mushrooms are softened, about 7-10 minutes. Add in udon noodles and cook for an additional two minutes.

As you can imagine, the taste and texture is just like regular tofu, but I love knowing I’m getting a good amount of vitamins and minerals from it that are a little harder to come by in a plant-based diet. B12 especially is challenging for those who follow a vegan diet to get through dietary sources, but TofuPlus makes it easier. There is a debate whether vitamin D2 is more or less effective than D3, but from what I’ve read, the jury is still out. However, I am assuming that because D3 is from animals (sheep wool, actually!), they chose D2 because it is a plant-based source.

Disclosure: I was not paid to promote Nasoya TofuPlus but did receive product coupons.

    Thank you for posting — sounds like a healthy but quick weeknight supper.
    However I am not familiar with Ginger Miso soup in a container. Would this be a large container from Pacific or Imagine?

    I’m sorry – I should have specified! I used this ginger miso soup broth from Trader Joes: http://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article.asp?article_id=1511
