Easy Miso soup (sopa de Miso)


Miso soup is something that you love or hate, some people can’t stand the taste others find it delicious.

Miso soup is a great dish to do when you don’t have much time, and you need something healthy, nutritious, comforting, and warm.

I probably never did the same recipe twice, because I always play with the ingredients I have at home. I will share here a very easy and basic recipe, that you can use as a base and then adapt to your taste and ingredients in your cupboard!

Miso soup  can be made in 10 minutes! so lets go..

(for 2 servings)

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon dried seaweed (soaked in water) or 2 sheets of Nori
  • 1/2 cup firm tofu, sliced or cubed
  • 1cm piece of ginger (grated)
  • 1 clove of garlic (finely sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 tsp soy sauce or a pinch of salt (optional)

Place the water in a medium sauce pan and bring to a low simmer. Add the grated ginger and garlic and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the miso paste, add the tofu and seaweed and simmer for one more minute ( you don’t want to boil the miso past). Turn the heat off, taste the soup  and add more miso paste if necessary. Top with green onions and serve.


A sopa de Miso é algo que se ama ou se odeia, algumas pessoas não conseguem suportar o sabor enquanto outras acham-no delicioso. A sopa de miso é um ótimo prato para se fazer quando não se tem muito tempo, e se quer algo saudável, nutritivo, reconfortante e quente.

Eu provavelmente nunca fiz a mesma receita duas vezes, porque sempre acabo por usar o que tenho à mão em casa naquele momento. Hoje vou partilhar uma receita muito fácil e básica de sopa de miso, que podes usar como base e  adaptar ao teu gosto e aos ingredientes que tens no armário! Porque essencial essencial é mesmo ter a pasta de miso 🙂

A sopa de Miso pode ser feita em 10 minutos! então vamos lá..
(para 2 porções)

  • 4 canecas de água
  • 2 colheres de sopa de miso
  • 1 colher de sopa de algas secas (demolhadas em água) ou 2 folhas de Nori
  • 1/2 caneca de tofu firme, cortada em fatias ou cubos
  • 1cm de gengibre (ralado)
  • 1 dente de alho picado
  • 2 colheres de sopa de cebolinho (cortado ás rodelas)
  • 1 colher de chá de molho de soja ou uma pitada de sal (opcional)

Colocar a água numa panela em lume médio/brando. Adicionar o gengibre ralado e o alho e cozinhar por 2 minutos. Acrescentar a pasta de miso e adicionar o tofu e as algas e deixar cozinhar por mais um minuto (não queremos que a agua esteja a borbulhar). Desligar o lume, provar a sopa e adicionar mais pasta de miso, se necessário. Adicionar o cebolinho e servir.

    Totally agree with you. I have only learn to cook miso soup in the last year, but it’s fantastic when you want something quick, tasty and comforting.

    This is something I enjoy eating at Japanese restaurants, but have never thought about cooking at home. Will have to try it out. Thanks 🙂

    Thank you for this recipe! I intend to try it out tomorrow. I’ve traditionally not enjoyed miso soup, but my tastes have changed over the years, and as it’s getting cold here in the UK (and I happen to have the ingredients to hand), I’m hoping it’ll be something I can add to my repertoire. Just hoping the sushi nori I have in the house is vegan friendly, I can’t imagine there will be anything in there that’s animal product but need to check.

    mmm I’ll have to try this now that it’s getting so cold outside!
