Miso Soup

Ever wonder how to make Miso soup? You know the soup that typically gets serve at Japanese restaurants? It’s actually very very simple. All you need are just a few ingredients and probably about 10 mins. of your precious time.

Add in a handful of sliced mushrooms and small cubes of soft tofu 4. Bring to a quick boil then let simmer for about 5 mins. 5. Garnish w/ chopped scallions

A little note: When handling soft tofu (you want to cut them into small cubes), be very gentle b/c they can easily break apart and become mush. 

Hope you’ll try out this recipe. Let me know how it goes…

  1. I love your version of miso soup. I’m a chopped scallions kind of girl but don’t really like it when they put pieces of dark seaweed in the soup. Seaweed is just asking to be stuck your teeth for awkward hilarity.


  2. I’ve always wanted to try miso soup but I never knew exactly what was in it (i’m a vegetarian, gotta be careful). This is great! I think I’m going to have to make this now.
