TONJIRU is a very popular type of miso soup in Japan.

We simmer pork together with lots of vegetables.

The pork gives the nice richness to the TONJIRU soup.

All the flavor from the vegetables melts in one pot and are nicely incorporated together.

It's just tasty!!!

If you change the vegetables, you can enjoy a totally different taste of miso soup.

That's one reason I never get tired with miso soup over 30 years.

You can always change your toppings and miso paste according to your preference!!

I'm introducing how to make DASHI in below video, so make sure to watch it before you make miso soup!

<Miwa's tips> ※Tons of tips on my video! Watch first before making it!


Any vegetables!! Chinese cabbage, cabbage, spinach, leek are my favorite.

・If you see the pork sticks at the bottom, grease the pan with a little bit of oil.

・Do not add liquid too soon. Steam ingredients patiently!

・Adjust your taste by adding more or less miso paste. Any type of miso will work in this recipe.
