Mushroom & Tofu Miso Soup (きのこと豆腐味噌汁)

Normally, Miso soup are just tofu & wakame, but the possibility are endless when it comes to miso soup. You can add your favorite ingredients such as potato, carrot, daikon or clams. As for my personal favorite, I use mushroom because it adds more texture to the soup. Feel free to replace the ingredients with anything you like & make experiment with it.

  5. Dissolve miso paste using laddle. Be sure to dissolve miso completely. We don't want to have salty miso clumps in our soup, right? :(

  6. Adjust the taste by adding more miso if you like your soup to be salty. Never boil the soup once miso is added, because it will make the soup taste bland.

  7. In a small serving bowl, put dried wakame and pour the soup over it. Wakame will expand quickly if it gets contact with hot water.
