This miso soup is much like the classic version you find in Japanese restaurants, with some added vegetables. Miso is a highly nutritious fermented bean and grain paste; you can find it in Japanese markets and at whole foods stores.

Recipe Ingredients for Miso Soup With Tofu

2 cups water (or Dashi)
2 tablespoons miso paste (dark)
1 small carrot, (peeled and cut in matchsticks or very thinly sliced)
4 medium mushrooms (or 2 large, cleaned, trimmed and very thinly sliced)
4 ozs (to 6 ozs or to taste) firm silken tofu, cut in 1/4 inch dice
1 scallion, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped watercress or baby spinach
2 teaspoons snipped chives

Recipe Directions for Miso Soup With Tofu

  1. Warm the dashi or water in a medium saucepan. Place the miso in a bowl, and ladle in about 1/2 cup of the warm dashi or water. Mix with a fork or whisk until the miso is well blended.

  2. Bring the remaining broth or water to a simmer (not a boil), and add the dissolved miso. Mix together but do not allow to boil. Add the carrots, mushrooms, tofu, scallion and watercress or spinach. Bring to a simmer, and remove from the heat. Serve, garnishing each bowl with chives.
