Directions

  1. In a stockpot bring the mushrooms, kombu, tomato paste, and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and continue to cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Drop the tomatoes in the pot, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until their skin cracks. Drain and run cold water over them. Using fingers, slip off their skins. Then cut in half and squeeze out their seeds. Coarsely chop and add to the soup.
  3. Remove the kombu and thinly slice. Return to the pot and cook another 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Right before serving, remove ¼ cup of stock water and pour into a small bowl. Whisk in the miso paste until smooth. Return to the soup and cook for 1 minute. Serve with sliced scallions.

Chef Tips

Miso comes in many different shades, from golden yellow to almost black. As a rule of thumb, the darker the miso, the stronger the taste. This recipe calls for red miso (aka miso) which is in the middle of the range taste-wise, and a perfect foil for the acidity of the tomatoes.
Take care not to let the soup boil again once you’ve added the miso. Miso is full of probiotic enzymes that get destroyed by high heat. However if you are on a neutropenic diet, you may need to do just that, boil the miso for around 3 minutes to neutralize the enzymes. You’ll still get the flavor and protein.
Miso paste will keep almost indefinitely in the fridge. Store sealed in a Ziplock bag to stop it drying out.
