Enoki Mushroom Miso Soup

I was in Whole foods the other day and spotted these adorable looking mushrooms and had to try them, I go to too many grocery stores and get tempted! My friend said would be good in soup, what a great idea, along with zucchini from a another friends garden it made a perfect mid afternoon snack. 

These little baby mushrooms are a good source of Iron and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus and Potassium. Cute little nutritional power houses!


  • 1/2 a pack of enoki mushrooms, 
  • 1/2 a big zucchini sliced thinly 
  • one small pack of white miso soup mix, this was a tad lazy on my part, as I didn't want to make the dashi and couldn't find the soybean paste
  • one pack of soup noodles

  1. heat the soup with water and boil the zucchini with the mushrooms for 4 minutes 
  2. add the noodles boil for another few minutes and its done a light and super healthy mid afternoon snack better than a cookie :-)

  1. Oh! Aren't enoki's fun!? This sounds like a delicious the earthiness of all the flavors =)

  2. Aww these are so adorable! I've never had them but I love that they're chock full of healthiness!

  3. Enoki mushrooms taste great! I like them stir-fried too.

  4. Enoki mushrooms! These are such fun, interesting little fungi. They are perfect for soups because they act like noodles in the broth.

  5. The miso soup looks so natural and healthy to me. I love enoki mushroom as well and as a bonus it's so easy to prepare too!

  6. I haven't tried Enoki was it?

  7. Yum! Love the texture of enoki. Japanese often uses it for hotpot :)

  8. Refreshing soup, calls for a try soon.

  9. Very interesting! I'll make sure I spot enoki mushrooms when I go shopping.

  10. My family loves enoki mushrooms too! I like to stir fried them with beef or pork with garlic and oyster sauce.

  11. Mmmm. This is my kind of soup. Healthy and tasty!

    It's ok to be lazy every now and then. We can't be gourmet all the time!
