Carrot Miso Soup with Ginger

Carrot Miso Soup is a bright and inviting orange colour dish to enjoy any time of the day. This Japanese miso kind of soup is unbelievably tasty.

Am I obsessed with miso paste? Yes, and again yes.

Since I have discovered this amazing and flavourful ingredient, I got obsessed and in love with it.

Okay, but how does it taste in soup?

It tastes delicious, healthy, colourful, and creamy. Carrot with miso is the best partner. They create a perfect duo, and together they burst aromas and flavours. If you think that it is only perfect for winter, you are strongly wrong. It is so ideal even in spring that some simple ingredients will make your soup look and taste restaurant-like.

Carrot Miso Soup with Ginger When you want a quick and easy recipe, then this soup is an escape as it is flavourful and hearty. I liked that creamy texture that resembles much an ordinary carrot soup. However, miso adds a touch of Japanese taste and feeling, so this is why I like it that much. I adore creamy soups made of different odd ingredients and turning out to be so tasty and lingering. For example, cauliflower soup – you may think that it is not tasty; moreover, it is disgusting. So thought I until I have tried it, it was one of the best tasting creamy soups I have ever tried. You can check my recipe here. Also, you can check other soup recipes such as Broccoli Cheese Soup, Potato Soup, Asparagus Soup, and others.

Carrot Miso Soup pairs great with anything as it has a naturally sweet flavour and is quick to make. I adore such creamy soups as they are healthy, less caloric, and inviting. Here you can garnish with anything you want and make it your version. I have topped some pine nuts and spring onion, but here you can decorate your way. You can also add some cheese or tofu cheese to this soup to make it more interesting and delicious. I have skipped any diaries as I wanted it vegan and natural.

Which miso is best for soup?

Miso is a kind of Japanese paste that makes dishes taste another level. You can check some miso recipes we have already made: Miso Scalloped Sweet Potatoes, Carrot Miso Pasta that was fantastically delicious, and now the soup.

According to some researchers, white miso is one of the best options; however, I found only the orange miso paste that paired great with any ingredients. The white one is much healthier, milder, and sweeter, so if you use the white one, then don’t worry about the taste and look.
