Dairy Free Vegan





Cook Time



  • 1/2 onion thinly diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 carrots thinly diced
  • 1/2 zucchini cut in half moons
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon tomato concentrate
  • teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 spoonfuls amaranth seeds
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


  1. In a pot, heat a bit of olive oil and sauté diced onion for 5 minutes over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add carrots and sauté other 5 mins. Sprinkle turmeric, ginger and stir the miso paste and tomato concentrate. Add a couple of spoons of water and dissolve the miso paste.
  3. Incorporate 2 cups of water (room temperature) and the bay leaf and increase heat to maximum. When boiling, add amaranth, reduce heat to low and leave it simmer until amaranth is cooked, around 20 minutes.
  4. Add zucchini and baby spinach and cook for 5 minutes longer. You will see how the soup thickens, that’s for the amaranth, and the longer you leave it, the thicker will get.
  5. Serve!

Hi, I\'m making this dish right now, and as I scrolled down the directions, I see that if says to add the miso paste, and then boil it. Everything I have ever read about miso is that you should NEVER boil it! It cooks off the nutrients. You can warm it, but never boil. Just wanted to write this so you can correct the directions. Can\'t wait to taste this soup!
