Spicy Cod Roe & Chinese Yam Miso Soup Recipe

I’ve introduced miso soup with grated Chinese yam before. Grated Chinese yam was fluffy and it got even better with beaten egg.
I would like to make miso soup with SPICY COD ROE & CHINISE YAM this time. Chinese yam has weak taste and spicy cod roe has strong taste. So I expect there will be perfect combination.
I’m also excited to use lightly pounded Chinese yam which gives you different texture from grated one.

Spicy cod roe goes great with various kind of dishes, for example rice, spaghetti, Okonomiyaki, and so on. It’s very rare to use it for soup dishes, but let’s just try! haha
