Miso soup is a popular Japanese dish and can be found at almost all Japanese restaurants. Miso soup is made from a base of miso stock.

Many types of miso are available in supermarkets. The most popular are shiro miso and shinshu. The two types have different levels of saltiness, which means you can adjust the amount of salt according to your preference. Shiro miso has more umami flavor than shinshu miso (this means it has a stronger savory flavor). You can also adjust how spicy or salty you want them by adding more or less garlic powder, ginger root or red pepper flakes if desired!
You can make miso soup in just a few steps
- Start with a good broth. You can use water, but I prefer to use chicken stock for my miso soup. You can check if the miso is salty by adding some salt to the miso and tasting it again before you add the rest of the seasonings.
- Chop up some ginger root or garlic if you like spicy flavors! Ginger root is an essential ingredient in this recipe since it adds sweetness to balance out other spices like red pepper flakes or sesame oil (which also double as umami). Garlic doesn’t need chopping up at all–just throw some minced cloves into your pot while they’re warming up over medium heat (or directly into hot water). You’ll want about 1/4 cup chopped ginger root + 2 tablespoons minced garlic per quart of broth (1L = 4 cups) so that should be plenty even though we only used half an ounce each time around here…
