Miso Ingredients for Soup

Miso soup is a staple at Japanese restaurants, it’s light and healthy. And the best starter for sushi, stir fry and more.

But most Japanese restaurants are using fish based Dashi and gluten filled miso. If this is not important to you, great… but if it is, it’s best to make your own at home.

Plus, when you make your own, you can add lots of yummy add ins like these add ins for Japanese soup with tofu.

Healthy Miso Soup Add-Ins:

  • Daikon… daikon reminds me of jicama. It’s firm and crunchy, but also juicy. If you’ve never had daikon you won’t be disappointed. It’s even great in salads and wraps!
  • Mushrooms… any mushroom you like will work, and they go so great in miso soup recipes!
  • Potato… diced potato is great in miso soups, I like to dice it, microwave for 3-5 minutes and then add it. But you can use leftovers too!
  • Cubed and cooked fish crab, or chicken… add some protein to your traditional miso soup! You can cook the protein in the broth, but we recommend adding pre-cooked (leftovers are best!) so you can still complete this miso soup in just 5 minutes.

How to Make Miso Soup from Scratch

There are many different miso pastes to choose from. Plus, traditional miso paste is not gluten free!

But don’t worry, we have supplied you with a gluten-free miso paste option plus so much more in the links below.

The Best Miso for Soup:

  • White Miso Paste… this white miso paste is perfect for most recipes that call for miso. We love it in soup, in salad dressings, in marinades. It’s fantastic!
  • Dashi Miso Paste… a miso paste Dashi combo will help you eliminate the need to purchase Dashi. Though many varieties of Dashi have fish in them… If you need a vegan recipe, see the link below for the vegetable based Dashi we love.
  • Reduced Sodium Miso Paste… if you’re looking to lower the sodium in this recipe, you can get reduced sodium miso paste!
  • Gluten-Free Miso Paste… miso soup should be for everyone! So if you have a gluten sensitivity, be sure to get gluten-free miso paste. Most miso pastes will have gluten in them, including the ones restaurants use.

How to Cook Miso Soup:

  1. Cut the nori in half, then cut into strips.
  2. In a medium sauce pan bring the broth and dashi to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Add in the nori (plus any add ins) and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the broth (I use a coffee cup to do this) and add the miso paste to the removed broth.
  5. Whisk the miso paste and the 1/4 cup of broth until the miso is dissolved, then add back to the sauce pan along with the tofu and green onions.
  6. Mix well, remove from the heat, and serve hot.
