Miso is fermented bean paste and is beneficial for health. It’s used widely in Oriental cooking, especially in Japanese cuisines. I cooked Braised Pork In Miso Paste recently and it was very delicious. I have been wanting to cook tofu miso soup for a long time. Finally I did it…..with lamb and vegetables. It was very delicious. My family really liked it. The weather is getting cold very fast here in Aberdeen and a good spicy, healthy soup keeps me smiling! I used Korean hot bean pastes to make it spicy. It’s another of my favourite pastes.
I love putting everything into a pot to cook. It’s simple, easy and little cleaning up to do. This is just one of them. You can adjust the amount of ingredients added. Here’s my Spicy Lamb Tofu Miso Soup recipe.
1kg lamb joint
2 carrots (peeled and cut)
2 parsnips (peeled and cut)
1 big onion (peeled and sliced)
1 whole garlic (peeled and pounded lightly)
water (maybe 3C)
Ingredients B (seasoning)
2T miso paste
1T Korean hot bean paste
1 piece soft tofu
kikkoman soya sauce (to season of needed)
Put all of Ingredients A in a pot. Bring to a boil and bring the fire to low and let it boil for a couple of hours until the lamb is soft.
Cut the tofu into cube and add to the soup above. Let it boil a few minutes. Turn off the fire. Add the miso and the Korean hot bean pastes. Stir to mix the pastes into the soup. Sprinke some chopped coriander on to the soup. Serve hot with rice. Or you can even eat as it is for a meal.
I love coriander. It’s not only good for health but it cuts down on the lamb smell.
