Chicken and Vegetable Miso Soup

Chicken and Vegetable Miso Soup

I cannot believe how delicious this soup is, I just saw this in Bon Apetit a couple of weeks ago after looking for some soup recipes then several days later after having all my ingredients sorted I made it at home in one cold winter evening. It’s quite easy to make, no fuzz and preparation is next to none. In less than 30 minutes you have a good hearty soup to comfort you and give warmth on cold nights.

This Chicken Vegetable Miso Soup is a meal on its own complete with chicken, mushrooms, vegetables and even avocadoes but there’s no stopping you to enjoy it with some soba noodles or even rice on the side.

  1. Now this is a delicious and guilt-free soup. 🙂

  2. Oh, this does look good Raymund – real comfort food, but light and refreshing.

  3. Definitely my next project!!!
    avocado made it very interesting…..

  4. wow! This is definitely worth a try!

  5. I would never have thought to add avocado to a soup but that looks AMAZING ! I will be trying that this week !

  6. Oh miso is deelicious. It is actually a perfect and super healthy dinner for breakfast choice as well. I think I will certainly give this a try. If you can get it, the actual natural dashi comes in hard sheets and you boil out the actual dashi flavour from the seaweed. Gives it a super authentic kick!

    Sounds like a great soup but I will be forever cutting up 500 chicken thighs and 200 shiitake mushrooms!
    I think that must have been 500 grams and 200 grams. Correct?

    • Raymund says:

      Lol that cracked me up 🙂
      Thanks for noticing it, youre correct it should be grams, updated the recipe now.

      • James McNulty says:

        Cool! Still sounds great and I will make. Hate to say this but for chicken amount now listed in “g” but the mushrooms are listed in “9” – that is the letter NINE not the small letter g. I think as before everyone will figure it out but I don’t think you meant to change it that way. Thanks again.
