Quick Miso and Broccoli Soup

Miso Soup

Ingredients (for 3):

  • A little vegetable oil (I use sunflower)
  • A teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 2 Celery sticks
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Head of broccoli
  • Miso paste
  • Ginger
  • Sesame seeds
  • A dash of tabasco or tiny bit of chili in some other form


  • Slice the celery thinly so you get moon shaped slices.
  • Peel and slice the carrot into half centimetre circles.
  • Put some vegetable oil and the sesame oil in a large saucepan.
  • Once the oil is hot, drop in the celery and carrot and saute for 5 minutes.
  • Separate the broccoli into florets and add to the pan.
  • let it all saute for a few more minutes while stirring regularly to ensure all the brocoli gets mixed in.
  • slice some ginger as thin as you can and add to the pan. I would say 5 or so thin slices should do it.
  • Boil some water separately in an electric kettle and then add it to the pan. About half a liter of water, enough to generously cover the rest of the vegetables.
  •  Add Miso paste to taste. 2-3 tablespoons should do the trick.
  • Turn the soup off and toast some sesame seeds to sprinkle on top.
  • Enjoy!
