Sesame Miso Tofu Soup

Print Friendly and PDF
This has become one of our favorite Japanese soup recipes.  It is an enhanced version of miso soup with sesame paste added.  You can add a spoonful of hot rice to this, if you wish.  It is so flavorful and especially good on cold winter days.  I make this soup frequently as Denny enjoys eating a Japanese breakfast.

3-1/2 cups water
Dashi soup stock seasoning packet
1 carton soft, silken tofu
3 T sesame paste
1/4 cup red miso
Chives or green onions, finely minced

Make the dashi soup stock according to package directions using 3-1/2 cups water.  Add the sesame paste and miso, stir until they dissolve.  Right before serving, add the tofu by crushing and breaking it up with your hands. Continuing cooking until the tofu is warmed.  Do not let this soup simmer too long as it will become watery from the tofu.  Serve with chives or green onions sprinkled on top.  Serves 4-6.
