Recipe: Vegan Keto Fried Tofu Miso Soup with Bok Choy

Fried tofu soup is a dinner I make often, and I’ve gotten a few requests for the recipe on my Instagram. It’s vegan, keto-friendly, and delicious, so what more could you want?

I’ve never followed a recipe when making this, but I decided to keep track of what amounts of ingredients I used. You do not have to follow this recipe exactly! Use the vegetables you have on hand, and feel free to add more. I sometimes add mushrooms, baby corn, and bean sprouts. To see all the iterations I make of this soup, follow @pescatarian.keto on Instagram.

There are many miso soup recipes that use real miso online, but I use Kikkoman Instant Tofu Miso Soup. You can omit the miso entirely if you’d like to lower the net carbs a bit. If you are a vegetarian or omnivore, you can also add additional protein by frying an egg and topping your bowl of soup with it. Adding a drizzle of sriracha to your egg makes it extra tasty!
