Method

1. In a large pot, sauté onion, garlic, and mushrooms with oil for about 5 minutes.⁣
2. Meanwhile, mix meatball ingredients together with your hands. Be careful not to over mix as the meat will become tough. ⁣
3. Add broth, tamari and water to the pot; bring to a boil. ⁣
4. Whisk in miso paste ensuring it is well combined. ⁣
5. Reduce heat to a simmer and gently add in meatballs. Add green onions and kelp noodles if using. Cook for 8 minutes until meat is cooked. ⁣
6. Remove from heat and ladle soup into big bowls. Add noodles and top with more green onion to serve.⁣
 
Notes: for a vegan alternative, use veggie broth and swap in tempeh cubes for the meatballs.
