Your Home for Homemade Japanese Food

How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Miso soup (Gluten-Free)


Miso soup is also an important dish in the Japanese diet. Miso (Soybean paste) is a traditional fermented food product. It is a very nutritious food and may help keep the doctor away. In fact there have been many studies of the effects of Miso on human health.

The basic arrangement for many Japanese meals is called “Ichi-juu, San-sai”, and consists of one bowl of cooked rice, one kind of soup and three vegetable or fish side dishes, so most people have miso soup during  every meal.

Here I will introduce onion and shiitake miso soup. You can cook many other kinds of miso soup such as tofu and seaweed, Japanese radish and deep fried tofu, potato and onion, clam and green onion, and so on. Depending on the ingredients you want to use you may need to slightly change the amount of miso and the amount of cooking Sake based on taste.
