Here's a sneak peek of a new recipe from my new book, “The Healthy You Diet“! This vegan and gluten-free Shiitake Mushroom & Soba Noodle Soup is everything you could want in a soup this fall. The miso in the recipe gives this dish its savory essence and the variety of spices and herbs provide a memorable flavor.
