15-Minute Miso Soup

15-Minute Miso Soup

Miso soup is a favorite of mine. Something about that tangy savory broth and soft bites of tofu have me swoon. I never knew just how simple it was to make until recently. For some reason I’ve just been really craving it, so I did a bit of research, watched a few TikToks and felt confident that this was something I could easily whip up. Turns out it’s the perfect soup – protein rich, great for the gut and you can literally make it from start to finish in 15 minutes. Count me in!

Ingredients:

  • Bonito flakes, 1 cup (like these)
  • Nori Sheets (like these)
  • 7 cups water
  • 5 TBSP red miso paste (like this)
  • 1 box of organic silken tofu
  • Green onions

Instructions:

  • Add the water to a large stock pot along with the bonito flakes. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for for 6 minutes.
  • Add in one sheet of nori and continue to simmer for 4 minutes.
  • Strain the broth and discard the nori and bonito flakes
  • Add the strained broth back into the stock pot and continue to simmer
  • Remove one cup of broth and put it in a small bowl, whisk in the miso paste. Once fully dissolved add this to the simmering broth
  • Gently dice the silken tofu into small cubes, add to the simmering broth for another 5 minutes.
  • Taste and adjustment for flavor. If it’s too mild, add another scoop of miso. If it’s too strong, dilute with a little water. 
  • Take two nori sheets and rip into bite sized pieces, adding them to the broth. Stir and immediately serve with a generous sprinkle of sliced green onions
