miso soup
  • Makes 4 servings
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large (or 2 medium) fresh daikon radishes
  • 1 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tbs. tamari, soy sauce, or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbs. mirin
  • 3 tbs. white miso paste
  • 3 cups water, divided
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 large bunch beet greens (or greens of choice)
  • ¼ cup minced scallions
  • Sriracha sauce, to garnish (optional)

Directions

STEP 1
Peel the daikon and slice into 1-inch-thick rounds. Place a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is shimmering, sauté the garlic and ginger until fragrant, about a minute. Add the tamari, mirin, miso, 2 cups water, and broth, and bring to a simmer.
STEP 2
Add the daikon pieces to the simmering broth, then turn the heat to low and cover the pot. Braise the daikon until tender, about 40 minutes.
STEP 3
Divide the soup among bowls and keep the pot over low heat. Add the remaining ­water and greens to the pot, and stir until the greens are wilted. Use a slotted spoon to add some greens to each bowl, and top the soup with scallions and sriracha to taste.

  1. Fantastic recipe! Easy to prepare, easy-to-understand instructions, and very tasty. I subbed in Hakurei turnip greens for the beet greens.
