Vegan White Miso Soup

As promised, back to my vegan and vegetarian friends to whom I promised this series of dashi-based (for most of them) soups (and other dishes).
Miso is increasingly becoming popular.

Vegan White Miso Soup!

INGREDIENTS: For one person

-Egg-plant/aubergine: 1 half
-Onion: 1/4 (sliced)
-Konbu dashi/seaweed soup stock: 1 cup/ 200cc/ml
-White miso paste: 1 tablespoon
-White leek cut into very fine strips for decoration and finishing taste point


1-Cut the egg-plant/aubergine into thin slices. Wash in water.

2-Pour some oil in a frypan and fry the egg-plant/aubergines slices until both sides are slightly brown.

3-Pour the konbu dashi into a pan. Add the sliced onion and simmer for a while until onuon are soft enough.

4-Add fried egg-plant/aubergines. Add and mix in white miso paste.

5-Serve in a bowl with chopped white leeks.


The miso contains enough salt, so no need to add any really.
I also add ground sesame seeds before serving.
One can add some sesame oil when frying the egg-plants/aubergines.
Add spices according to preferences.

  1. Thanks for this post. I have never seen or had eggplant in miso soup before. However, I love eggplant so I can’t wait to try this.

    Can you share your thoughts on grounding sesame seeds please. My Japanese friend tells me sesame should always be ground but that is something we don’t do in the US. I assume it is because they don’t break down in the body unless ground, but I am just guessing. Do you know if that is the reason for grinding?



    1. Dera Alicia!
      As for ground sesame seeds, there is nothing simpler. Just grind them with a mortar and pestle. Better freshly ground.
      It will definitely accentuate the taste! This is the reason for it! Do experiment, it’s worth it!
