Simple Miso Soup

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by ChefChanteuse

This Japanese soup is simple, delicious, and low-calorie! It tastes just like the homemade miso soup at my favorite Japanese restaurant. This recipe can easily be doubled, halved, or made to any other size.

I was hoping this would be like the Japanese restaurants I've had, but I think it was missing the dashi. I couldn't find any without msg, but I think that is the key ingredient. I tried adding soy sauce but it wasn't the same.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the water into a 2-quart pot. Stir in the miso until it's no longer in chunks.
  2. Bring to a simmer.
  3. Tear the nori into pieces about 1.5" by 1.5", but don't be concerned if they're bigger or smaller than that. Add to the pot.
  4. Dice the tofu until you like the size of the pieces. Add to the pot.
  5. Best enjoyed immediately but keeps well in the fridge.
