Miso Soup

Miso soup is made by mixing miso paste which is a Japanese flavor and dashi which is a type of stock. Miso paste is made by fermenting soy beans, rice and salt.

  1. Put the water in a large pan with the dashi granules and bring to a boil.

  2. Add the tofu and mushrooms, reduce the heat, and let simmer for 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in the miso paste and let simmer gently, stirring, until it has dissolved. Add the scallions and serve immediately. If you leave the soup, the miso will settle, so give it a thorough stir before serving to recombine.
