Tomato and Shiitake Miso Soup

Tomato and Shiitake Miso Soup

On the weekend they still had local vine ripened roma tomatoes at the farmers market. I wanted to work the tomatoes into a miso soup for my workday breakfasts . After searching the web I ended up with a simple and yet tasty soup. The tomato miso soup was a bit sour (as cooked tomatoes can be) but it really showed off the fresh tomato flavour.

Now I just need to figure out how to work corn into my miso soup for next week...

Tomato and Shiitake Miso Soup

ingredients
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • 1 cup dashi
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 tomato (sliced)
  • 2 shiitake (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon miso (gluten free for gluten free)
  • 1 green onion (chopped)
directions
  1. Heat the oil in a small sauce pan.
  2. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
  3. Add the dashi, tomato paste, tomato and shiitake and bring to a boil.
  4. Simmer for a few minutes.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Dissolve the miso with some of the heated dashi in a separate bowl. (We do not want to boil the miso as it will not taste as good.)
  7. Add the miso back to the soup.
  8. Pour the soup into a bowl and top with the green onion.
