I love trying new foods, and I love making new foods, as well. But sometimes it is hard to find the right ingredients! Enter this Miso Broth. I love Miso Broth, the few times I've tried it, but have never made it. Then, the other day, I found a can of white miso paste at our local food co-op. Time for Miso Broth! I found a recipe on the Food Network, but then, ran into another roadblock. Dashi! By this time I was already at home and, I don't actually even know if I can buy it in my little local town.
Since I was in a pinch, I decided to use some fish sauce and nori; both things I always have on hand. And do you know what? It actually seemed to work! Or at least, while not "traditional" miso broth, the end result tasted delicious. I also put in a chicken carcass, to give the broth a little extra flavor (not traditional either, from what I gather). I strained the finished broth through about six layers of cheesecloth to get that beautiful, clear broth.
Not Quite Traditional Miso Broth
8 cups water
1/4 cup white miso paste (to taste)
1/2 piece nori
1/2 cup fish sauce (to taste)
1 onion, root end removed, and quartered (leave peels on)
1 tablespoon chicken better than bouillon
1 chicken carcass, optional
2 tablespoons aji mirin
Add all ingredients to stockpot. Simmer for an hour or so. Strain through fine mesh strainer, or layers of cheesecloth. Use as desired.
I just added a few sliced green onions and some sous vide cooked chicken breast slices.
I am freezing. Plus, I feel like I’m getting a cold. I normally reach for bone broth to help me feel better, but I didn’t have any in my fridge. Instead, I quickly made a dashi from kombu kelp and Bonita flakes, mixed in some miso, sautéed shiitakes, kale, ginger and scallions and had something comforting in about 15 minutes. This soup is rich in vitamins and minerals and the warmth was just what I needed. #foodismedicine#misosoup#improviseadaptovercome#improvisedmeal#breakfastfood
