Recipe Ingredients for Miso Soup

455 g. firm tofu (or one container medium firm)
8 dried shiitake mushrooms
1 large carrot - stemmed, peeled and thinly sliced at an angle
3 1/2 c. vegetable broth
1 head bok choy - rinsed, thick stems removed and greens thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. white pepper
2 green onions - sliced thinly crosswise
4 tbsp. red or brown miso paste
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
3 1/2 c. vegetable broth
1/4 tsp. white pepper

Recipe Directions for Miso Soup

  1. Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch-thick slices and stack between two paper towels. Place the stack between two plates and weight the top plate with a heavy pot or cast-iron skillet. Allow to drain for 30 minutes.

  2. Bring a small pan with 2 c. water to a simmer and add the shiitakes to it.

  3. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes and then remove from heat. Let the shiitakes soak in the water for 15 minutes.

  4. Bring the carrots and broth to a boil in a large pot. Lower the heat to medium and cook for 9 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, remove the shiitakes from the soaking water. Strain the water into the carrots and broth.

  6. Slice the shiitakes into thin strips and add to the pot.

  7. Add the bok choy and pepper to the pot and cook for about 4 minutes.

  8. Cut the tofu into small cubes.

  9. Take 1/2 c. of the broth and mix it in a separate bowl with the miso, until smooth. Add this mixture back to the pot along with the tofu and reduce the heat to medium-low.

  10. Cook for another 3 minutes and then serve, garnished with the green onion, sesame oil and seeds.
