Miso is a fermented soybean paste used to flavour various dishes, but most widely used as a stock to season soups.

Try this vegan miso soup to warm up on cold winter days.

Prep time: 40 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Serves 2


  • Soak the Kombu and dried mushrooms in 6 cups of filtered water for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the mushrooms, dice them (discarding the stem as it can be bitter tasting) and place back in the pot.
  • Bring the stock to a boil then lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes (This stock is called DASHI in Japan and is the base for many noodle dishes, stews, sauces as well as soups.)
  • Soak the wakame for 10 minutes and then cut into small pieces with kitchen scissors.
  • Add the wakame and the soaking water to the pot, along with the vegetables and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Whisk miso with a little of the broth and then add to the soup and switch off the heat.
  • Do not allow the miso to boil or it will destroy the enzymes.
  • Serve hot with finely chopped spring onions to garnish.  You can add cubed tofu or soba noodles to make the soup more of a meal.
