Day 47 Miso Soup

Miso Soup

Another ridiculously easy recipe.  I have been a soup kick lately.

4 Cups Vegetable Stock
1 Cup Sweet Onion, chopped
1 Cup mix of Nappa Cabbage and Shiitake Mushrooms, shredded
1 Cup Silken Tofu, cubed
1/4 Cup Miso Paste
Soy Sauce or Teriyaki Sauce for garnish
There are several varieties of Miso.  I used white, but you can also use yellow or barley

Cook the onion in a medium saucepan until well softened.  Add the stock, tofu and vegetables, cook till heated through.  Remove a half cup of stock and cool slightly.  Add the miso and stir to dissolve.  Return to pan and serve immediately.  Miso should not be cooked or it will lose its fermented qualities.  Add some soy sauce or teriyaki sauce for a garnish.  The teriyaki will be sweeter.
Mixing the miso paste.

Goes well with Green Beans and Mushrooms
