ingredient obsession: miso soup

bowl of vegetarian miso soup

Hello! Kate from Cookie and Kate here. I’m excited to share this restorative miso soup today, which is a perfectly simple, hot one-pot meal. It’s light but filling, which is just the kind of meal I’m craving on these chilly days when I’m feeling overstuffed from all the holidays feasts.


Miso is on my short list of “magic ingredients,” right up there with various vinegars and flaky finishing salts. Miso is most often made of fermented soy beans, and it adds a delicious umami flavor to Japanese-style dishes. It comes in several different colors; white being the most mild in flavor and the darker red, yellow and black colors have more intense, complex flavors. So far, I have only experimented with white miso, and it adds a delicious “je ne sais quoi” factor to Asian dishes. It really made this simple soup go from ordinary to something special.

Once miso hit my radar, I was surprised to discover that it is relatively easy to find at grocery stores. Look for it in the refrigerated section (typically near the tofu). It also lasts for a few months in the refrigerator, so I don’t worry about it going bad.

For this soup recipe, I followed BHG’s Asian Chicken Noodle Soup recipe, making it vegetarian with a couple of simple substitutions. I used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock and extra-firm tofu instead of chicken, which I chopped into small, bite-sized strips. I also added a carrot that I sliced into ribbons using my vegetable peeler, and spiced up the final result with some sriracha. I hope you’ll give it a try soon!
