Miso soup is the most popular soup in Japan. Typical Japanese-style meals include a bowl of miso soup. As miso varies in saltiness, adjust the amount of miso to your preference.


  • 3 cups dashi soup stock
  • 1 block tofu
  • 3-4 Tbsps miso paste
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion


Put dashi soup stock in a pan and bring to a boil. Cut tofu into small cubes and add them to the soup. Simmer the tofu for a few minutes on low heat. Scoop out some soup stock from the pan and dissolve miso in it. Gradually return the miso mixture in the soup. Stir the soup gently. Stop the heat and add chopped green onion. Try not to boil the soup after you put miso in.

*Makes 4 servings

I adore this recipe - it was perfect, Member angieerickson

I've made miso soup before, but it never tasted right...this recipe is fabulous and tastes like it came from the best Japanese restaurant in Vancouver, BC. LOVED IT. To the person who said not to add water, the only Dashi Soup Stock I could find was a dry granulated stock that required water. It was perfection! I wouldn't change anything.
