Author's Notes

Yields 2-3 portions.

Miso soup is usually made with dashi broth because water is not enough to bring out the umami flavor of the miso. In this recipe, the mackerel provides the flavor, so using water is fine.

You can add any vegetables for miso soup. Common choices are carrots, mushrooms, eggplants, zucchinis, and potatoes. Cook them in the soup before you add the miso (the miso shouldn’t boil).

Soy sauce and mirin add depth to the taste, but they are not a must. If you make this miso soup only with miso without soy sauce or mirin, use 35 g of miso.

Garlic or ginger goes well with miso soup as well. Add a half teaspoon of either to add a nice kick to the taste if you like.

Step 1
Cut an Onion (1/2) in half and remove the stem. Then slice it into thin strips of about 5 mm (1/4-inch).
Step 2
Cut the Tofu (3.5 oz) into 1 cm (1/2-inch) cubes with a knife. Thinly slice the Spring Onions (1 stalk) for garnish.
Step 3
Put the Mackerels in Oil (1 can) with its oil into a pot. Separate the mackerel into pieces with a spoon and add the Water (1 1/2 cups) .
Step 4
Add the onions and heat over high heat.
Step 5
When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and let it simmer until the onions are slightly translucent. Once the scum appears on the top, remove it with a spoon.
Step 6
When the onions start to cook through, lower the heat. Dissolve Miso Paste (1 1/2 Tbsp) with a mesh ladle in a soup.
Step 7
Add the tofu. Continue to heat the soup over low heat until the tofu is warmed.
Step 8
Add Soy Sauce (1/2 Tbsp) and Mirin (1/2 Tbsp) , if using.
