Easy Homemade Miso Soup

Course Soup
Keyword miso soup, soup
Servings 4 servings


  • 5 cups dashi
  • ¼ cup miso paste I used shiro
  • 3-4 tablespoons green onions chopped
  • 3-4 oz. cubed tofu extra firm

For the dashi:

  • 2-3 strips kombu
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 ½ cups bonito flakes


For the dashi:

  • In a medium size pot combine the kombu and water. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Remove the kombu (I used tongs). Add in the bonito flakes and seep until they sink to the bottom (3-4 minutes). Strain out the bonito flakes.
  • Dissolve the miso paste in 1/2 cup dashi. Use a whisk or rubber spatula. In a pot combine the remaining 4 1/2 cups dashi, 1/2 dashi/miso mixture and the cubed tofu. Cook over medium heat until the tofu is warmed through. Add the green onions a minute or two before serving.
