Yoga Soup

What you need: 

Broth: 2 vegan bullion cubes 4 cups water Soup: 1/2 cup shelled frozen edamame 4-6 vegan frozen Asian dumplings or pot stickers 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari fresh ginger, minced or thinly sliced, to taste 1 cup frozen broccoli 1 cup rice noodles/rice sticks handful dark greens, chopped (spinach, kale, or chard) hot chili oil, to taste, optional sesame oil, to taste, optional lime juice, to taste, optional

What you do: 

1. For broth, boil the water on high in a medium sized pot and dissolve the cubes in the water. Add the edamame and dumplings. Stir in soy sauce or tamari and the ginger. 2. Bring water to boil again. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli. Cook for another minute at medium heat. Turn off the heat and add the rice noodles, making sure they are completely covered by liquid. Keep the pot on the burner to keep the soup hot, but not at a boil. 3. Let the pot sit for about 10 minutes on the burner or until the noodles are fully cooked, adding chopped greens to the pot to steam for the last few minutes. 4. Ladle into bowls, topping with chili oil, sesame oil and a squeeze of lime juice, if desired. Other additions: Thinly sliced or shredded carrot, miso (added to the bowl of soup), sesame seeds sprinkled on top, chopped scallions, green beans instead of, or in addition to, broccoli I make this soup every Tuesday after my yoga class; it is very fast, easy and filling. Enjoy!

;)b  LOVED this soup!  Made it over the weekend.  Adding some Chilli Garlic sauce and scallions at the top!  Was delicious and SOO simple!!! 

Thanks for sharing!! ;)b ;)b ;)b


We tried this tonight--my omni husband LOVED it. I enjoyed it, too. :winksmile: We made a few changes based on what was in the house. Great recipe!


We had this tonight and ate it all!  So delicious - no doubt we are making this again!  Here were my ingredient choices:

- Omitted the bouillon cubes - I always just use water as a base because any kind of broth or bouillon is way too salty to me
- Increased the water by 50% (wanted to make sure it was still soup-y, with how much stuff went in the pot!)
- Edamame and pot stickers - I got Ling Ling brand vegan pot stickers at a local health food store - the soup would be fine without but I liked having them in there
- I did use the soy sauce (probably 1-2 tbsp) and plenty of ginger
- Veggies: 1 sliced carrot and about 6 sliced shiitakes along with the broccoli and spinach
- I used rice sticks which were a pain when I was ladling but I think I'd rather have them than a thicker noodle.
- At the end: Yes lime juice (1 tbsp or so), no oil.  Also added two chopped green onions and 2 tbsp miso


I used this recipe more as a guide, but I think that's the way it's meant to be used.

No potstickers.
Snow peas instead of edamame (allergic to soy).
Soba noodles instead of rice noodles.
No greens, but added: sliced frozen green beans, 8 oz. sliced mushrooms with the frozen brocolli.
Cayenne pepper, garlic powder and fresh ginger for spice and flavor.

Oh and I tripled the recipe.

Simple and delicious  ;)b.


This soup is ridiculously simple and quick to make but packed with so many great flavors. I eyed a lot of the measurements as far as Bragg's, red pepper flakes, and powered garlic. I used frozen edamame, broccoli, & cauliflower; fresh mushrooms & shredded carrots; and canned baby corn. Skipped out on the dumplings only because I didn't have any. Topped it off with some chili and sesame oil. So freakin' good and filling! I'll post pictures next time I make it.


I thought this was alright... I left out the greens and lime juice because I didn't have any... I only added a squirt or braggs and it was way too salty for me.


:)>>> YUM! Made it tonight - finally! And it was the best tasting, filling soup ever! I think I boiled it a little too hard because my dumplings fell apart  :-\. No matter, still yummy!!!!


:)>>> According to my 2 year old: "YUM YUM YUM!" I couldn't agree more  ;)b


  this soup is really delicious! I used most of the optional ingredients, I think the sesame oil,soy sauce,  ginger(lot's of it) and lime juice are essential, I didn't have any chili oil so I added some red pepper flakes. Also used green onions and added some cilantro(because the flavor  goes well with the lime juice) and I don't think I wanna make  without it. Also I didn't have any  pot stickers, instead I added a little bit more noodles and tofu. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!  :)>>>
