Refreshing Miso Soup with Tofu and Shiso Leaves

Refreshing Miso Soup with Tofu and Shiso Leaves

The shiso leaves taste very fresh in this miso soup.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Tofu (firm or silken, whichever you prefer)
1/3 block
Shiso leaves
about 6 leaves
to taste
Dashi stock
700 ml


1. Cut up the tofu, and shred the shiso leaves.
2. Heat the dashi stock in a pan. When it starts to bubble, dissolve in the miso and add the tofu.
3. Taste and adjust. When it tastes good to you turn off the heat. Ladle the soup into serving bowls, scatter with shiso leaves and it's done.
4. I also tried adding shiso leaves to shredded daikon radish miso soup (Recipe ID: 1461784). This combination was delicious too.
