Tofu Miso Soup

A healthy and very simple winter warmer soup, easily made with pantry or fridge items. You won’t regret trying this.

Ingredients (Serve 3 – 4)

  • about 350 g (as much as you want) of firm tofu cut into small little cubes (€ 1.80 for a box of 750 g from Asia Market)
  • ~ 2 tbsp of miso paste (€3.50 for a pack from Asia Market)
  • 1 stock cube (Note: Ideally, one should use Dashi stock, I had a hard time looking for it even in Asia Market, so I replaced it with Knorr veg cube stock for ‘contingency measure’.)
  • about 1 L of water
  • 3 stalks of spring onions, chopped (separate the green and white parts)

Preparation

  1. Bring the water to boil and then let it simmer.
  2. Contain the miso paste in a ladle and bring it to the simmering water (click here for step-by-step pictures), use the simmering water to dissolve down the miso paste bit by bit until all is dissolved.
  3. Do the same with vegetable stock cube.
  4. Add in the tofu cubes and white parts of chopped spring onion then simmer through for another 2 minutes.
  5. When the soup is satisfactory to your taste, serve it hot with chopped green parts of spring onions.
