Broth Ingredients

  • 45 tbsp miso paste (I like mine strong, start with 3, if you’re not sure)

Other ingredients (any number & combination)

  • Tofu
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Daikon
  • Seaweed
  • Cabbage
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach

Seasonings/Spices/Herbs (in moderation, taste & check)

  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Spring Onions

  1. Cook any hard ingredients or meat first, once they’re cooked, add the quick cooking one like the vegetables.
  2. Once cooked, take off heat, wait 5 minutes, then dilute a little of the miso paste in some of the soup in a cup, before adding to the rest in the saucepan.
