How to Make Miso Ball

If you are new to making miso soup and found it a little bit too overwhelming, this cute looking “Miso Ball” is a solution for you.

There are many instant miso soup packages available in the supermarkets in Japan, but they are not as good as those homemade, of course.

This miso ball is a homemade instant miso soup.

Mix the small pieces of ingredients and powered dashi stock into miso, and make a small ball. When you want to have a cup of miso soup, just pour hot water into the miso ball, then you have your miso soup within a minute!

You don’t have to follow the ingredients blow. Just put whatever you like! Be creative.

Today’s Afterword

Look at the green trees outside when your eyes are tired. Stretch out if you are sitting down for too long. Sleep on the hard floor for 15 minutes if you to take a short nap. Drink water to refresh up. If you really want, ask for a permission to yourself if you can have a piece of chocolate. That’s me. ;)
