Tomoe Restaurant in Athens. Video recipe “Miso Soup” by Chronis Damalas.
Miso soup is indeed indispensable to the Japanese diet.
Whether eaten as a quick breakfast or as an accompaniment to a complete meal, Japanese people make and consume it practically everyday.
Miso soup is said to have first appeared during the Muromachi Period (mid 14th c. – mid 16th c.). It was originally served at farmers’ dinner tables as typical country style cooking. The broth was made from dried bonito or dried seaweed, and then miso paste was gradually mixed in.
The broth is the basis for miso soup and is an important element in bringing forth its soothing taste. The ingredients that are added to the soup and the look of the miso paste itself vary depending on the region or household. Sayings such as “so many men, so many minds” definitely hold true for miso soup. This quintessential Japanese dish truly can be made a thousand different ways.
In this video our Chef Chronis Damalas will show you how to cook Miso soup.
