3 grape tomatoes (40 g in photo)
250 cc dashi
2 tsp miso
1/2 tsp yogurt
Make crisscross cuts at the bottom of tomatoes.
When tomatoes are cool, peel off skin.
Cut asparagus into 3 cm.
Lightly beat egg.
Put dashi in a pot, and bring to boil.
When dashi boils, put asparagus, cover, and simmer until soft (a few minutes).
Add miso + yogurt mixture, and mix well.
While keeping soup near boiling, swirl in egg
Add tomatoes, and heat through.
- Boiling the soup after adding miso compromises the best aroma and taste of miso. When keeping the temperature high to cook egg and heat through tomatoes, watch the heat level to prevent soup from boiling.
- One-third or half an egg is enough for the above recipe. This is a great miso soup to finish up any leftover egg. It also reduces total sodium and cholesterol figures (1 egg contains about 70-90 mg sodium and 180-240 mg cholesterol).
- Egg and asparagus alone or egg and tomatoes alone make a great combination, too.
