  • Miso Soup Cooking Tips:

    One of the most recommended tips for cooking miso soup is to make a homemade broth. If you can’t make a homemade stock, you can use dashi granules.

    It is also essential to select the right miso, a fermented soybean product, for the soup, as the flavor can change the taste of the dish drastically.

    No matter what ingredients are included in the soup, you must always add the miso paste before serving it to make sure that it won’t boil. Any type of miso paste can be used in miso soup.

    Red miso is one of the types with strong flavor and it is usually not recommended if you are cooking soups that are meant to be light, but if the soup is a main dish then red paste can be used.

    White miso is slightly sweeter and less strong than the red and it is the most famous choice for standard miso soup in Japan.

    A combination of red and white miso will result to a soup with good and strong flavor. This kind of paste is also known as all-purpose miso in Japan.

    Here are some ways on how to use miso in your recipes:

    In creamed soups, you can use light colored miso as an alternative to butter, milk, and salt.

    As an alternative to sour cream, you can make a puree using lemon juice and tofu.

    To prepare a salad dressing, you can blend herbs, olive oil, vinegar, and light miso.

    You can include miso to dipping sauce for raw vegetables, norimake rolls, and spring rolls.

    Prepare a pate with lemon juice, tahini, garlic, tofu, white miso, and dulse flakes.

    Cook a cheese for pizza and wraps with yellow miso and firm tofu.
