TMJ Recipe: Vegetable Ramen Soup

This heart-warming soup is delicious and nutritious. Those with jaw pain, Bruxism, TMJ disorder often have a hard time eating vegetables and high fiber foods that are essential to a healthy diet. Soups such as these fit into a soft diet without sacrificing taste and nutrition. The soup can be made in a variety of ways depending on availability of vegetables. Add frozen vegetables like peas or corn for color, texture and more nutrition. Try different proteins like diced tofu, peas, shrimp, edamame beans or cooked chicken. If jaw pain is severe, consider pureeing the vegetables before adding protein and the noodles. For a *gluten-free variation, choose brown rice or buckwheat noodles.

Choose organic ingredients when available:

  • 32 ounces organic low sodium vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup Brussels sprouts, trimmed & cut in half
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce (choose gluten-free brand if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (yuzu hot sauce), optional
  • 4 ounces dried soba noodles, preferably made from brown rice or buckwheat

Preparation:

In a large saucepan, on medium heat, sweat onions and mushrooms for 5 to 7 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and carrots. Continue to cook for 5 to 7 minutes, adding a bit of broth if liquid is needed. Add corn and peas until defrosted. Add the rest of the broth, soy sauce, honey and optional hot sauce. Bring to a boil, add noodles. Separate noodles gently with a fork and reduce heat to a simmer. Follow package directions for cooking time. Add spinach and allow to wilt in the soup. Stir and serve.
