Miso SoupMiso soup is one of the most common dishes in Japan along with rice.
The gentle but flavoursome soup settles the stomach and keeps the body warm.
For the contents, we add whatever we like or seasonally available such as Tofu, Deep Fried Tofu, Spinach, Winter Cabbage, Spring Onion, Wakame(seaweed), Mushrooms, Egg, etc.
Direction of Miso SoupBoil veggies in a pan. In a separate pan, dissolve 1/2 tablespoon of miso per 200cc of dashi, a Japanese fish stock. Add veggies into the soup and heat up gently to serve.
