Snow is brown, there is ice everywhere, the sky is grey, it’s freezing and you feel depressed… Well, here’s one of my cozy, cheap and easy soup recipes to cheer you up, ’cause winter is not over yet!

Miso Soup

Miso soup is a salty dish that is popular in Japan. Good to eat at any moment of the day, this soup is original and delicious! Perfect for those who want to change their routine, Miso soup will surely gain your heart if you desire to cook new things!


  • wakame (these are a kind of seaweeds)
  • 1 pack of soft tofu cut in 1/2 inch dices
  • 3-4 miso paste (fermented salty paste)
  • 2-3 spoon of dashi (similar to fish broth)
  • 2 Green shallot cut in thin slices


  1. Boil water in a pot.
  2. Add dashi in water.
  3. Put the miso paste in a laddle and let water come in it.
  4. Lift the laddle, then, blend the miso paste in it ’till the mix is homogene.
  5. Pour the liquid with the dashi in the pot.
  6. Add the tofu and the seaweeds (wakame) and let it in for 5 min.
  7. Serve hot with green shallot!

*Sadly dashi is hard to find… So you have the choice to either buy it by internet, in a specialized asian shop or replace it with fish broth.

いいお召を! 😉
