Simple Miso Soup Recipe, A Nostalgic and Timeless Hawaii Favorite

Growing up, I loved eating my mom's miso soup! Nothing beat a hot bowl of miso soup with tofu, onion, wakame, and rice! Sometime I also love to add a scrambled egg in my soup as well!

I can say without a doubt that this recipe is one of my all time favorite soups and overall dishes! It's nostalgic, timeless, and not to mention, very simple to make!

Please enjoy this recipe!

What do you need?

5 C. water

1 block tofu

1/2 C. green onions

1/2 C. white onion

1/4 C. dried shrimp

1/2 C. dried seaweed (need to rehydrate in water before using)

1/2-1 pkg of dashi

Boil 5 cups of water in a pot.

When water starts to boil, add in dried shrimp.

Add in 1/2-1 packet of dashi (Japanese soup base), depending on how much flavor you would like.

Let the soup come to a boil. While you're waiting, prepare the miso. Add a little bit of water to 1/2 C. of miso and mix till the paste becomes a little thinner.

Add miso paste to soup and mix!

After soup comes to a boil, add in white onion, tofu, and rehydrated wakeme (seaweed). Squeeze the water out of the seaweed before adding to the soup. If not, your soup will become very salty.

Let soup sit for about 10-15 minutes and it's ready to enjoy! Lastly, add in green onion for garnish!


Personally, I always love to add either hot white or brown rice to my soup for more texture and overall... I think it just tastes better!
