Easy Miso Soup
Easy Miso Soup – quick miso soup recipe with tofu and seaweed. Miso soup is hearty, delicious, healthy and takes 15 minutes to make.
This time of year, I crave for warm, hearty and nourishing soups. While I enjoy rich and creamy American soups, I still prefer Asian soups such as this easy miso soup that takes practically 20 minutes to make, but big in flavors, delicious and healthy.
The base of Japanese soups is dashi broth, which is made with dried kelp and bonita flakes (dried fish flakes). Dashi is the building block of Japanese food. You can’t have a good miso soup without dashi. Another key ingredient in miso soup is the miso paste, which is soy bean paste. I like white miso paste as it’s mildly salty with a tint of sweetness. You may get the ingredients at a Japanese food store, which is very fun to explore. Once you get all the key Japanese ingredients, you can make a lot of Japanese food at home. Enjoy!
