I can’t stop eating this miso soup every time I make a pot of it. You’d think a big pot of warm, comforting miso soup with daikon and sesame would last me for a few days, but it’s usually all gone after 48 hours! It’s a wonderful afternoon and bedtime snack to have as it’s very healthy and low calorie.
In a medium/large pot over medium heat heat the oil. Then add the dashi, onion and daikon, and bring to boil.
Meanwhile roast the sesame seeds in a small pan over medium heat. Take pan off the heat as soon as the seeds begin to pop. Using a pestle and mortar, grind the seeds until they are paste-like. Add this into the soup with the miso paste and stir. Cook for about 30 minutes until the daikon has cooked through and is tender.
Add tofu (break it with yours fingers). Season with black pepper. Mix to combine everything and once the tofu is heated, remove it from the heat. Serve miso soup with Japanese rice (optional).
Perfect rainy day soup and quick enough for mid-week supper! Great as a first course or as an entree with a nice spring mix salad and some wonderful crusty bread. And don’t forget about the rest of the bottle of white wine.
Collards, black-eyed peas and smoky bacon make this delicious take on Hopping John soup.
Loaded with light and fresh flavors, Chicken Pho is a fun twist on the same-old-same-old bowl of chicken noodle soup. The broth is best made ahead of time, in either a slow cooker, or on the stove top. Then allow it to cool completely and skim off any congealed fat. The poached chicken and rice noodles can also be made ahead for time saving purposes.
