My ultimate breakfast is a bowl of rice along with miso soup. Since many Japanese foods contains fish stock, you may have to go and find a vegan restaurant.

So why not make it yourself??👧

Breakfast is the most important meal for me to give me the energy to be ready for a brand new day! I wish your day will be a delightful one by making this hearty authentic vegan miso soup. Don't forget to check the vegetable mixed rice which pairs perfectly with this miso soup.

Enjoy it♡

<Yield> 4 servings

<Prep time> 5 minutes (doesn’t include soaking time)

<Cook time> 10 minutes


900ml water, divided

35-40g yellow miso paste (depends on how salty your miso paste is)

8g kelp

1/2 onion

1/2 carrot

1/2 fried tofu

1 tablespoon wakame seaweed

<Optional toppings>

green onions


1. Soak the dried shiitake mushrooms into 500ml of water overnight. Also soak the kelp in 400ml of water for at least 30 minutes.

2. Squeeze the dried shiitake mushrooms to let the juice come out. Allow the juice to go back into the mushroom broth. Cut them into thin strips and set aside. Cut the carrot and onion into bite sized pieces. For the fried tofu, pour boiling water over the fried tofu to remove the oil. Squeeze the excess water from the tofu, dry, then thinly slice them.

3. In a pot add the shiitake mushroom broth and the kelp broth (with the kelp). Turn on high heat and take out the kelp before it starts to boil completely. After taking out the kelp, add in all the vegetables and cook it until they are all fully cooked.

4. Lastly dissolve the miso paste into the soup. Add the miso paste into a ladle and dissolve it completely before you mixed it into the soup otherwise you will have miso lumps in your soup. Please feel free to adjust the saltiness by adding or reducing the amount of miso paste used.



-You can add any vegetables or tofu.


-Never boil the soup after dissolving the miso paste to preserve the flavor.

<Storage time>

Store it in a pot for 1 day.
