Mom's Miso Soup

Print Friendly and PDF

My mom made the best miso soup, and it is a simple recipe that comes together quickly. The key is in the dashi soup stock which comes in dry form in a small bottle or box at a Japanese market. Here's a great photo of my parents from the 1950's at our Seattle home.

Ingredients:
4 cups dashi soup stock
1/2 to 1 block tofu, rinsed and cut into 1/2" cubes
4 T miso
1 tsp soy sauce
1/4 cup green onions, chopped

Make the dashi soup stock according to the package directions, adding water, then add the miso to the broth. Bring to a boil. Add tofu and simmer for a few minutes until the tofu is heated. Do not overboil. Top with green onions. Serve immediately.
