This is one of the world’s greatest soups, and if you’re only eating it when you go to a Japanese restaurant, you’re not eating it often enough. Making your own is fast, easy, and fun. Enjoy!

Miso soup is simple and complex, like you say. There is beauty in keeping it simple, I prefer to add only 1 or 2 ingredients other than the dashi and miso, that would be usually daikon radish, wakame & tofu, abura-age (fried bean curd) and wakame, bean sprouts, or grilled green onions (the white parts only). This allows you to enjoy the taste your ingredients impart to the miso soup. You can also play around by changing or blending different miso like Chef John did, or play around with the dashi by adding niboshi (little dried fish… my favourite is dried flying fish) or mackarel bushi instead of the standard bonito bushi (katsuo bushi).
Brilliant, made my lover say, oh this is good.. Miso 📯 ney!!
When we were kids and we’d get sick, my mom would cook rice into it, like a porridge, and poach an egg in it as well. It was the best!!! Restores your body and soul.
I noticed you have a gas stove. The Biden administration would like to have a word with you.
We cook miso soup few times a week, but usually resorted to use dashi-infused miso.
Chef John did it genuine, very respectful way to extract dashi, and used own miso blend. Absolutely hats off 🙇♂
Miso ramen . . .mmm
There's something so wrong seeing miso soup eaten with a spoon.
Just like my mother made! She was dabbling in gyotaku, a traditional Japanese printmaking technique, and she decided to make miso soup. Two types of miso. Steeping the seaweed. So delicious!
Nothing like it for fighting a cold or settling a sore stomach.
why are you using a knife directly onto your plate isnt that like death by hanging?
Used to you make sorts videos…
Speaking of tea-like soups… I wish for Singaporean bakkuteh (sp?) please!!!
Almost to 1 billion views!!!!!
Oh cool and thanks Chef John on showing how to make miso soup and I never thought it as a tea 😮 hehe, I went to Asian supermarket and bought miso soup mix 😏✌️
Happy Lunar New Year 🐰🏮
Chef John being the hero of the inaka foreigners who have to cook because they live in the Japanese countryside and there are no restaurants and very few foreign ingredients at the grocery stores.
The dashi granules work fantastic! Look for "Hon-Dashi" brand it shouldn't be expensive if it is look elsewhere. You can have miso soup in minutes without any fuss. I like wakame or hijiki. Just be sure not to bring the soup to a boil as it supposedly destroys the added health benefits associated with miso as well as taste.
Great miso mixing tip! Thanks.
One of my favorite soups. The smell when you add the bonito is amazing. I have to go to an Asian grocer an hour away each way to get it and it’s so worth it.
I think this is the first time that Chef John didn't say around the outside three times after saying it…
Thank you for taking the mystery out of this for me. Souplantation used to offer this and it was my absolute favorite! I haven’t been able to enjoy it since.
How about replacing the red miso with a bit of gochujang, the toufu with lightly fried chicken… oooh, wait… lightly fried pork kassler. Moves it way out of the Asian scope, but we are global cooks after all.
Hijiki isn't needed, use a konbu, or seaweed. And no seaweed.
