Miso Soup – How To Make Miso Soup

Miso Paste and its origin

One of the main components of miso soup is miso paste.

A Chinese monk said Miso existed in China over one thousand years ago, and it was later introduced to Japan by Buddhist priests. 

A fermented mixture of grains, beans, salt, and soybeans was used to preserve food during warmer months.

Minerals such as zinc, copper, and manganese, and vitamins K and B, are all prevalent in miso.

What is the best way to make Miso Soup?

To make Dashi, fresh kelp and dried bonito are boiled in water and made into stock.

Dashi is available in convenient jars or packets in a variety of strengths.

Use a stronger stock with more dashi for this soup. You can use white, yellow, or red miso paste for this soup. 

Compared to the sweetness and creaminess of yellow miso, the strength and saltiness of red miso are far greater.

INGREDIENTS:-

1. Two cups of water

2. Half a cup of dried bonito flakes, optional.

3. The following amount is needed for one (2-inch) piece of kombu

4. A 4-ounce serving of silken or firm tofu, drained

5. Red or white miso paste (2 tablespoons)

6. One to two medium scallions

Directions:-

  1. Place kombu and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2.  Once the water begins to boil, remove the kombu, and stir in the bonito flakes if you want to. Let the water rapidly simmer for a few minutes. 
  3. Put the pan back over low heat for another minute, then take the bonito out of the liquid and strain from the dashi. 
  4. Alternatively, substitute water for two cups, or chicken broth, or vegetable broth for 2 cups.
  5. Cut the tofu into very thin cubes (1/8-inch to 1/2-inch on each side). Cut the scallions very thinly, 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch on each side.
  6. Add the dashi or broth back to the saucepan and bring to a rapid simmer.
  7. Place the miso in a small ramekin or measuring cup, and mix it with 1/2 cup of hot broth. 
  8. Mix the miso with a fork or whisk to make sure it’s completely dissolved in the water and no lumps remain, about 1/2 cup or so of the broth.
  9. Add the dissolved miso to the simmering broth.
  10. Simmer until the tofu has been warmed, about 1 to 2 minutes. Do not overcook the miso as a result.
  11. Sprinkle the scallions just before serving the soup.
  12. The miso is best served fresh which is why it will settle after sitting in the broth. Just stir it briefly with chopsticks or a spoon to mix the soup again.
