Miso Soup with Tofu and Enoki Mushroom

My summer vacation and time off work has been officially over for a week now. It is always hard getting back into routine after being off for two months, but as usual once I start doing what I love again, it becomes easy. Saturdays remain a busy day for me since it is when I run various errands, such as buying groceries for the week. Today, I decided to buy ingredients for miso soup.

Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup which consists of stock (dashi) and soy bean paste with tofu and green onions added afterwards. The good thing about making your own miso soup is that you can add any ingredients you want.  Seaweed, baby bokchoy or mushrooms are some of the various ingredients that may be added. My version uses tofu and enoki mushrooms. It’s really quick, easy to make and always tastes great.

      Hi Jenn,
      Hondashi is seafood soup granules that is usually used in Japanese cooking. You can buy it in a jar or sachet from any Asian store that carries Japanese products. I bought mine from T&t supermarket here in Vancouver, Canada. It is similar to a bouillon so if you cannot find hondashi, you can replace it with vegetable or chicken bouillon.
