Tomato-Miso Soup

Yield 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps thinly sliced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 2 large tomatoes--peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup light miso paste (shiro)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 pound soft tofu, cut into 1-inch dice
  • 2 large scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 small to medium radishes, thinly sliced

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring a few times, until the mushrooms are tender, about 6 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Pour in the water, stir well and bring to a boil. Add the tomatoes, cover and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Whisk in the miso and soy sauce and return to a simmer. Add the tofu and simmer for 2 minutes. Ladle into bowls, garnish with the scallions and radishes and serve.
