Our love for soups in Ghana is incredible. From light soup to palm nut, we can’t get enough of it. If you’re a lover of soups then you need to try Miso, a traditional Japanese soup which is just as healthy and delicious as any soup you’ve tasted. It is quite easy to make, all it takes is four easy steps. If you’re looking to try your hands at some ethnic meals, you should try this simple Japanese soup.
Miso soup is a savory mixture of broth, green scallions and tofu, served at most Japanese restaurants before the sushi trays arrive. Making it at home is one of the simplest and most satisfying ways to treat yourself if you’re looking to try something new. In just four simple steps, here’s how to make Miso soup:
Like any other recipe, the most important thing to get right are the ingredients. For Miso here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup chopped green chard or other sturdy green
- 1/2 cup chopped green onion
- 1/4 cup firm tofu, cubed
- 3-4 Tbsp white miso paste (fermented soybean paste) with or without bonito (fish flavor, though bonito makes it non vegan- vegetarian-friendly.)
- optional: 1 sheet (1/4 cup) nori (dried seaweed), cut into large rectangles
Now to make your delicious miso soup, here’s what to do:
- Place water in a medium saucepan and bring to a low simmer.
- Add nori and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
- In the meantime, place 3 Tbsp of miso into a small bowl, add a little hot water and whisk until smooth. Then add to the soup and stir. This will ensure it doesn’t clump.
- Add remaining ingredients to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Taste and add more Miso or a pinch of sea salt if desired. Serve warm.
