Miso Soup With Mixed Mushrooms

This is a classic combination that will give you the umami sensation.

  • 8 ounces mixed fresh mushrooms (such as white and shiitake caps)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions (green onions)
  • 2 1/2 cups dashi (see note) or vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons brown miso

    Cut mushrooms into thick strips.

    In a 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and scallions; cook and stir for 20 seconds. Add dashi; bring to a boil. Stir in miso until dissolved, and do not boil further. Serve right away. Makes about 4 portions.

    Note: Dashi is a Japanese broth of dried tuna flakes (bonito) and seaweed. It can be quickly made from granules or a concentrate found in Asian specialty food stores. Miso is also available there.
