Peanut Butter-Miso Soup for Winter

Happiness is a basket of eggs. Hens laying eggs again is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner.

While we wait for spring to arrive, a good way to warm your heart on a cold day is with a steaming bowl of peanut butter-miso soup. I saw this made on a Japanese program last week, and it’s a satisfying combination that is simple to make.

For soup for two or three, take a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and one of miso and stir them together. Put two cups of water in a bowl and bring it to a simmer. Add the peanut butter-miso mix and stir it into the simmering water. Then add cubed tofu and fresh vegetables such as napa cabbage, bok choy, spinach, and green onions. Add meat too, if you like.

The peanut butter and miso combination makes a surprisingly rich, complex, satisfying flavor. Use a peanut butter that has no sweeteners or fillers. Look for the ingredients on the jar of peanut butter. The only ingredient should be roasted peanuts. Or roast your own peanuts and make your own peanut butter.

    Hello 🙂. I was wondering how you were doing on the egg front? It would be good to get some more but I’ll struggle to come over until early February most likely. We’d also gladly have any of your bread and tofu as well, possibly a bird. Please let me know, thanks 🙂

    Two of my favorite things. Fresh eggs and peanut-butter miso soup!!!!! In Portland we have had a cold winter, and it amazes me when my chickens start laying regardless of the temperatures. On a day it was 23 degrees, I found several that had split due to being frozen. Peeled off the shells and let them have the frozen yolks.
