Julienned Daikon Radish & Silken Tofu Miso Soup

Julienned Daikon Radish & Silken Tofu Miso Soup

A mild miso soup with tender julienned daikon radish and silken tofu that'll melt in your mouth!

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

2 cups (400 ml)
1 1/2 tablespoons
Daikon radish
about 15 cm
Silken tofu
1/2 block (175g)


1. Julienne the daikon radish and dice the silken tofu.
2. Put the water and sardines into a pot and bring it to a boil on medium heat. If making the miso soup in the morning, soaking the sardines the water overnight will bring out a stronger dashi flavor.
3. Add the daikon to Step 2 and gently simmer until transparent.
4. Next, add the tofu and continue simmering.
5. Using a miso soup strainer, add the miso. Stop the heat right away. Don't let the miso boil.
6. Gently stir the pot without breaking the tofu cubes, and it's done.
