Many of you might have had Miso Soup once before even if you didn’t order it at Japanese restaurant, just because it came with your Chicken Teriyaki.
Miso Soup is soul food for Japanese people. They can have it anytime of a day. Some people don’t mind eating just a bowl of rice and this soup without any main or side dishes. Miso Soup is such an important part of Japanese meal.
Depending on what kind of ingredients you put in your Miso Soup, it could be as simple as the one we made here or very filling with meat, potatoes and vegetables.
It’s so easy to make, but your friends and families don’t have to know that. They will appreciate your hard work of making restaurant quality (or better!) Miso Soup without much work.
Miso paste is found at Japanese markets, online stores or even in the Asian food section at some American supermarkets.
