I live in Japan and wanted to make my first miso soup. If you don't use dashi, you won't get an authentic miso soup. It's essential in Japanese cooking. I had no idea which Miso paste to buy and since I can’t read the kanji I ended up buying a red and white combination. Appearance and taste differs between the two. I used dried shitake mushrooms that I rehydrated along with silken tofu. Served to my Japanese friend and her two year old and the two year old had three helpings and kept saying "oishii", delicious. Even my 22 month old devoured the stock, pushing aside the mushrooms and tofu. I will make it again and will look for more similar recipes.



This is really good! I am currently living in Japan and couldn't figure out how to get that "authentic" miso soup taste. Dashi stock was the answer! If you want to make it even healthier and more filling, add some fresh bean sprouts! They go great in this soup.



This was awesome and really close to the miso soup you'd expect from your favorite sushi bar. I used a combination of mushrooms that I had on hand, and since I am a vegetarian I did not use dashi stock. Instead I used a combination of vegetable stock and water and found a great organic koji soy sauce to mix with the miso paste. My very picky friend loved it, too, so it's safe to say that it's a wonderful recipe.
