Turnip and Maitake Miso Soup

Turnip and Maitake Miso Soup

Turnips tastes sweeter when added to miso soup. This is my favorite miso soup.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Maitake mushrooms
1/2 package
Daikon radish sprouts
to your liking
Awase miso (or your favorite red or white miso)
about 50 g, as you like
Dashi stock
about 900 ml


1. Peel the turnip skin, and slice to about 1 cm thickness. Shred the maitake mushrooms by hands. Boil the dashi stock, and add the turnips. Once it's boiled again, turn down the heat to low and skim the scum on the surface. Add the maitake to the pot and dissolve the miso into the soup. Turn the heat off once the miso is dissolved.
2. Serve the soup in a soup bowl, sprinkle the radish sprouts on the top, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love my mom's miso soup with turnips, and now I often make it for myself.
