Recipe Tips

  • Add miso paste after turning off the heat to preserve the excellent flavor of miso. Boiling miso can diminish its exquisite taste.
  • If you find the soup too bland, feel free to add more miso paste to suit your taste preferences. On the other hand, if it’s too thick, adjust the taste by adding water.
  • For those who prefer a firmer consistency of egg, extend the cooking time to approximately 3 minutes to thoroughly cook the yolk.

Storage

For any leftover soup, simply transfer the soup to a glass jar or airtight container and store it in the fridge. It will stay good for 3 days.
