Miso Summer Soup

Shirataki noodles absorb the umami flavor in this easy recipe.

"Soup may seem like a bad idea on a hot summer day, but this one is refreshingly light, especially when made for meal prep and eaten deskside in your air-conditioned office," says Katzie Guy-Hamilton, chef and director of food and beverage at Equinox. "It's packed with gut-friendly fermented miso and fresh vegetables to fill you up without weighing you down."
