This is another experimental miso soup recipe! It doesn’t look like a Japanese soup at all… But believe me, it tastes so good!
I came up with this recipe inspired by Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan, as I got nice potatoes branded “Kita-akari” produced there yesterday. One of the most popular local dishes in Hokkaido is “Jaga butter” which is simply cooked (steamed/boiled/microwaved) potatoes with butter. So I wanted to represent this “Jaga butter” in miso soup.
First I cooked the potatoes cut in bite sizes in a broth and added sweetcorn and milk that also evoke an image of Hokkaido, then green beans to make the soup more colorful. After flavored with miso paste, serve in a soup bowl and top with a small amount of butter.
