Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup consisting of a stock called “dashi” into which softened miso paste is mixed.

Many ingredients are added depending on regional and seasonal recipes, and personal preference.

So I’m a blogger and I work from home , and one of the advantages of working from home is that you can spend a little extra time on your breakfast.

I don’t have to beat the rush hour traffic so I can take some extra time and make a miso soup breakfast.

And it’s even easier with a packet of instant miso soup with some rice and I added just a sprinkle furikake to it just to make it a little bit more interesting.

  • ½ cup rice
  • 2-3 cups water (160ml)
  • 2 tsp furikake mix


  • First let’s take the rice and boil that. Just boil it like you normally would in a pan of water or in a rice steamer if you want. It usually takes around 8 minutes in boiling water and depends a little bit on the type of rice you’ll be using.
    Boil the rice
  • In the meantime we’ll be adding the cooked rice to a bowl and add the furikake to it. Just a few scoops depending on your taste. I usually add 2-3 teaspoons of the mixture.
    Add furikake to the rice
