Easy Tofu Miso Soup

tofu miso soupSometimes I let the husband cook. It always brings me a bit of anxiety  because I never know what he is going to come up with.  His latest thing is to zero in on something I enjoyed at a restaurant and try to recreate it at home, especially if its Asian food.

There is this small sushi house we really enjoy and I adore their miso soup. Husband decided to find a recipe and make some for me. The recipe we tested has a small amount of tofu in it, so I purchased organic.

One thing husband didn’t know was that he had to drain the tofu. So, I showed him how to do that by placing a towel on the plate, placing the blog of tofu on top of that, adding another towel, another plate and then I sat my cast iron skillet on top of the tofu plate sandwich. After a  little while we swapped out the towels. It doesn’t take long.

I should have had him fry up the tofu before placing it in the soup. Note to self for next time. The tofu got a little squishy and that didn’t settle too well with me. I have texture issues with food.

Also, I’ll have him put less tofu in. For our pan he put 1/2 the block of tofu (cubed) in the pot and it ended up being just too much tofu for me.

It tasted pretty good. The soup I eat at the sushi house doesn’t have tofu in it. Just broth and scallions.

I’m not complaining. I am excited to be able to try it again.

We did use Minute Miso by Hikari Miso. Sorry, just wasn’t up for boiling fish heads today! 😉

You might want to add less tofu. You might want to brown your tofu in a frying pan before adding it to the soup. Add more miso mix, salt or pepper to your tastes.

  1. I’m not sure how I feel about tofu to be honest, but if it was disguised in soup, I think I could handle it 🙂

  2. I love miso soup at restaurants but have never tried to make it myself. I should, so I don’t have to grab takeout whenever I want some!

  3. I heart miso soup – I always have to get it in a sushi restaurant. I’ve thought about making my own, since I often buy tofu, but haven’t tried it yet. This is a good inspiration!

    Ok – this does sound like I would love tofu miso soup and easy makes it even better – I don’t believe I’ve had this before – I did save the recipe to try! Thank you 🙂

  5. We love Tofu but I only recently started using it. I love using it in recipes and you are right… you have to drain it properly. The recipe looks delicious.

    I wonder if my friend Kiki would like this recipe. She’s recently learned that her milk allergy is so awful she can hardly eat anything. I bet this would help her have one more recipe in her collection. Thanks for sharing.
