I began trying to make a clear soup recipe, which quickly grew out of control to incorporate elements of miso, egg drop soup, and seaweed. I serve it as a main dish with a side of brown basmati rice.

  • Reduce heat to medium. Mix miso paste, ginger paste, and sesame oil into broth using a potato masher or ladle until fully incorporated. Add edamame, mushrooms, spring onion, garlic, and soy sauce to miso broth; cover pot with a lid, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until mushrooms are no longer floating on the surface, about 10 minutes.

  • Mix tofu and cayenne pepper into miso broth. Tear cooled egg whites into small pieces and add to miso broth. Stir nori and sugar into miso broth; cover pot and simmer, stirring occasionally, until soup flavors have blended, about 1 hour.

Excellent broth. Replacing the chicken fat with sesame oil is perfect. Obviously one may add any vegetables on hand. Read More
