Hot and Simple Miso Soup

This delicious soup is extremely easy to make, and doesn't take more that 15 minutes. I find it increasingly convenient to make now that I'm studying for finals and have to time to worry about cooking, so it's perfect for students.


1 small onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, cubed
2-3 tbs vegetable oil
5 cups miso soup (2tbs paste, 5cups water)
7 oz tofu, cubed
1 teaspoon of red pepper
Pinch of dill
1 teaspoon of sesame seeds


Boil the rice in a pot. The amount you make will vary on how much you like to put in the soup. I use about a cup per bowl. Also, you can make the rice each time you eat in smaller amounts, or just make it all at once and reheat it.

1. In a non-stick pot, sautee the onion with the vegetable oil.

2.When the onion is translucent, add the cubed tomato. Cook on medium heat until the tomato is soft.

3. Add the miso base, red pepper, and cubed tofu and bring to a rolling boil.

4. To serve, put about a cup of rice in a bowl and add enough soup to cover. Top with some dill and sesame seeds.

Store the remaining soup in the fridge.
