Miso Soup for All Seasons

Miso Soup for All Seasons: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Miso broth is liquid nourishment. Simple and satisfying. Any of the many varieties of miso may be used. Darker-colored miso has a deeper and stronger flavor (a fine fall and winter choice); lighter-colored miso is more gentle and sweet (superb for spring and summer). I love to mix and match to meet my mood. Using vegetable, mushroom, or kombu dashi stock instead of water fortifies a simple miso soup with flavor and nutrients. Serving it with pickles and a small bowl of whole grain fits the order for a macrobiotic breakfast or power snack.


  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 lb soft tofu, cut into 1/2" cubes (optional)
  • 2 tsp dried wakame seaweed (optional)
  • 4 Tbs red or yellow miso
  • 2 green onions, cleaned and sliced finely to the top


  • Place the water in a medium stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the tofu and wakame, if desired, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, uncovered.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the hot water into a small bowl. Add the miso and stir to dissolve, preferably with a wooden spoon.
  • Return the miso mixture to the stockpot and add the green onions. Reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for 1 more minute. Adjust to taste with a touch more miso or a bit more water, as desired. Serve immediately.
