Japan’s cuisine is among the most unique and memorable in the world.

Every Miso soup out there consists of a broth base blended with miso paste, tofu, spring onion and nori (dried seaweed), After that, anything goes, but this recipe for Miso Soup made with Sadie’s Kitchen takes it right back to basics.

*In Japan they say Itadakimasubefore a meal. While it is essentially their equivalent of “bon appétit”, it has a somewhat different sentiment. Itadakimasu is something an individual says to themselves, including when eating alone. Translated literally, it means “I receive”, but the expression is one of humility and gratitude for the meal.
