Miso Soup for Beginners
A quick and healthy recipe for a vegan miso soup bowl with miso paste
Typ: Soup, Starter
Cuisine: Vegan, Vegetarian, Japanese
Portionen / Serves: 2-4 servings (either as a main or starter)
Zutaten / Ingredients
  • fried onions
  • chili sauce
  • herbs (coriander, parsley)
Zubereitung / Instructions
  1. Soak the dried shiitake for at least 20 minutes in hot water and cut them into stripes afterwards. If you're using fresh shiitake mushrooms remove dirt with a brush or soft towel.
  2. Dice the tofu. Wash and slice the spring onions.
  3. Peel and mince the onion and sauté them in a pot with some oil.
  4. Add the shiitake and fry them for another 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, bringt 1 liter of water to a boil (e.g. in a water kettle).
  6. Add ca. 5 tablespoons of miso paste to the mushrooms and onions and stir everything together. Now deglaze everything with the boiling water and stir until the miso paste has completely dissolved (which should happen relatively quickly).
  7. Add the tofu, spring onions and seaweed to the soup and - if necessary - some more miso paste to taste.
  8. Once the seaweed is welled and soft you can add the udon noodles and let it simmer until they are ready. As the noodles are pre-boiled they are done within minutes.
  9. Serve in bowls and garnish with fried onions, chili sauce and herbs to taste.
