New recipe for a delicious miso soup

Miso soup

Readers will know how much I’ve been struggling with miso. It’s been a challenge finding flavor combinations that compliment a miso soup base and are both healthy and delicious. But I think I’ve now got something that works for me. The health benefits of miso are worth the effort. Maybe you should give this a try?

Easy and delicious miso soup
Serves 2

  • 1 carrot (about 1 cup), peeled and sliced thin
  • 1/2 of a cooking onion (up to 1 cup)
  • ½ to 1 cup raw shrimp or haddock (4-6 ounces), chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons each of freshly chopped garlic and/or ginger
  • 1/2 to 1 cup tomato juice, V-8, or tomato salsa (essential 🙂 )
  • 1 tablespoon of a strong curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste (I used mame miso)
  • a few drops sriracha sauce (to taste – optional)
  • chopped green onion, for garnish
  1. Peel and chop the carrot and onion.
  2. Remove the shells and chop the shrimp (or the haddock, if using).
  3. Bring water to a boil. Add carrots, onion, ginger, garlic, tomato product of choice, and curry powder. Reduce heat and simmer (covered) until carrots soften, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp or fish and miso. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes more, just until shrimp turns pink or haddock turns white, garnish,  and serve.

Variation

  • For an even heartier soup, add 1/4 cup lentils with the tomato product.
  • If you really want to cheat, add a little beef bouillon paste… LOL

The verdict

We all liked this soup. Hearty, flavorful, rich, and packed with protein and fiber (if you use the lentils). Yes. Give this one a try.
