15-Minute Miso Soup Recipe

15-Minute Miso Soup

Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup made with fermented soybean paste ‘miso’. It is a light and flavorful soup that is often served as a starter or light meal.

The base of miso soup is a stock made from kombu seaweed. Other common ingredients include tofu, wakame seaweed, and green onions.

It’s super easy to prepare and can be customized to your own liking. You can add other ingredients such as mushrooms, carrots, or spinach. You can also use different types of miso paste, such as white miso or red miso. White miso has a milder flavor, while red miso has a stronger flavor.

Let’s go!

  • Set a pot over medium heat. Add 4 cups of water + kombu + shiitake mushroom.
  • Cover the pot and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, add dried wakame + 1/2 cup of hot water to a small bowl. Allow it to soak for 2-3 minutes. Rinse, drain, and squeeze (if your wakame has a strong fishy smell, you can rinse it a couple of times). Set aside.
  • Once the 10-minute is up: Uncover the pot. Using a strainer, remove the shiitake mushrooms and kombu. Slice the mushrooms and transfer them back to the pot. Discard the kombu.
  • Add button mushrooms + wakame + firm tofu. Give everything a quick mix. Cover the pot and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, add miso paste + 1 cup of hot water to a small bowl. Mix well and dissolve the miso.
  • Once the 5-minute is up: Uncover the pot and turn off the heat. Pour in the miso water and add freshly chopped green onion.
  • Mix well using a spatula. That's it, 15-Minute Miso Soup is ready. Serve and enjoy.
