Which ingredient’s discount make you happy at a grocery store?
Avocado is the one of them for me! Because there is very few avocado farmer in Japan, it’s always expensive…
One of the thing I miss most about Hawaii is picking a lot of fresh avocados from trees in the neighborhood. OH.. I miss that!! When I lived there I didn’t appreciate that but now I wish I could make many kind of dishes with fresh avocados.
Today is the lucky day to have avocado for dinner! Let’s see if I can create new delicious avocado dish!
【Recipe (2 servings)】
1 oz miso paste (fermented soybean paste)*1
1 teaspoon dashi granules*2
2.5 oz avocado, Diced
2 oz onion, Shredded
1 oz bacon, Cut into bite-sized
1.7 cups (400ml) water
*1 Feel free to adjust the amounts of miso paste to your liking.
*2 If miso paste already contains dashi, don’t need dashi granules. I use miso paste containig dashi this time.
1. Heat water and onion in a saucepan until onion turn translucent.
2. Add bacon and simmer for 1-2 minutes to cook it. (Add dashi granules if you need). Then remove from heat.
3. Add miso paste and stir until miso is completely melted. Put diced avocado in a bowl and pour the soup.
Tip: You don’t have to heat avocado in the saucepan because the hot soup can warm up avocado in the bowl. (If avocado is underripe, you can heat as you like!)
Ready to eat!
To be honest, I was worry if avocado will go good with hot soup or not. But I should’ve not thought like that. It’s totally fine and very delicious soup!!! You must be satisfied with the combination of avocado and bacon in the miso soup.
I think tofu would match with this recipe too instead of bacon.
Enjoy your miso soup!
