Secretly Healthy Japanese Miso Soup

by | Mar 25, 2023 | Pressure Cooking | 0 comments

Growing up in a Japanese household, miso soup was a regular dish at our dinner table. I remember my grandma making it with love and care, using the best ingredients she could find. As an adult, I still find comfort in making miso soup myself. It’s a simple and healthy recipe that I can make quickly and easily, without sacrificing flavor.

This recipe is a variation on my grandmother’s recipe, but I’ve added a few of my own touches. I’ve swapped out the traditional fish stock for a vegan

Tip: To make the vegan dashi broth, soak 4 dried shiitake mushrooms in 4 cups of warm water for 30 minutes. Then, strain the liquid and discard the mushrooms.

Variation: Feel free to add other vegetables to the soup, such as enoki mushrooms, edamame, or carrots.
