Serves: 4 people                   Level: Easy                  Time: 25 minutes


  1. 1 onion
  2. 1 leek
  3. 5-10 shiitake mushrooms
  4. 1 carrot
  5. 1 yellow pepper
  6. 50 ml mirin
  7. 50 ml tamari (GF soy sauce)
  8. 1 Tbsp dashi (dry fish)*
  9. A handful of parsley
  10. 1 1/2 litre water
  11. Roasted, cubed tofu (optional)


Heat the water in a pan.

Cut all the vegetables into medium sized chunks and add to the pan.

Cook on a medium heat for about 20 minutes.

Now add the mirin and tamari.

Turn off the heat and now add the miso paste.

Finally, top with parsley before serving and if you fancy it, add roasted tofu on top.


*To keep the recipe vegan-friendly, replace the dashi with liquid from steeped Algamar Atlantic Kombu or Tropical Wholefoods Shitake Mushrooms, both of which can be found at Better Food. This site offers step-by-step instructions on how to make the liquid.
