My nutritionist encouraged me to make homemade miso soup at home for a healthy lunch, so today I gave it a try. I should have taken a photo, but I already ate it! It was delicious! I will take a photo next time. This recipe is quick and simple! I found organic miso paste in they refrigerated section of Fairprice’s Finest on Bukit Timah. It comes in a plastic tub. I have heard Whole Foods in the States carries a similar item.
Easy Miso Soup
2 1/4 cups water
2-3 ounces chicken or tofu, sliced
1tsp olive oil
2 TBSP miso paste
1/2 cup fresh spinach, washed
1 green onion, sliced
Sautee the chicken or tofu in olive oil in a small skillet until cooked thoroughly. Boil the water in a medium saucepan. Ladle about 1/2 cup of the water into a small bowl. Add the miso paste to the reserved water and dissolve. Add the chicken or tofu to the boiling water in the saucepan and cook 2 minutes. Add the vegetables, cook another 2 minutes until the spinach is just wilted. Pour the reserved water and miso into the saucepan, stir and serve hot.
