Vegan Korean Cuisine: Kimchi Tofu Miso Soup

Although I live in and loves its food, I’ve learnt to appreciate Korean gastronomy through many trips to Seoul and eating at Yakiniku Restaurants here.

I’M sure that vegan and vegetarinas would love a simple tatse of Korean food according to their preferences.
Her is a very simple recipe for cold winters!

Kimchi Tofu Miso Soup!


-Kimchi: as much as you want
-Tofu (soft silk/kinu tofu style): 200 g
-Sesame oil: 1 tablespoon
-Leeks: as much as you like (chopped)
-Dashi/Konbu Dashi (vegan dashi)/ soup stock: 1 cup/200 cc/ml (check dashi posting)
-Miso: 1 tablespoon (check miso posting!)

-Optional: freshly cut green leaf vegetables for decoration.


-Heat the sesame oil in a pan. Fry the leeks and kimchi together for a while.

-Add dashi soup stock and bring to boil.
As soon as it boils, lower fire to small.
Add miso and stir and add tofu cut in bite-sized pieces and cooked until tofu is warm enough (never overcook tofu!)

-Pour into serving bowl and eat with chopsticks and Chinese spoo (or just with a spoon!).
-I like it served with freshly chopped thin leeks or coriander!
