Cabbage and Tomato Miso Soup

Saturday, August 14th, 2010
I wanted a refreshing miso soup to go with this build a meal since it's a little heavy with the fried chicken. I decided to go with cabbage and tomato. Who says you can't use cabbage and tomato in miso soup. Everyone knows that cabbage and tomato go well together (kabetsu no roru maki for example) but I guess it's a little on the unconventional side as far as miso soups go. I try to get a little creative and sometimes I find that it work. I think this was one of those cases

Ingredients(Servings 2)
2 wedges of cabbage. (Cut them about a 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch thick so that they don't fall apart. See photo below.)
5 cherry tomatoes and cut into halves or 1/2 of a roma tomato and cut it into wedges.
2 tablespoons +1 teaspoon of miso
2 cups nibandashi

1) Make nibandashi or you can use ichibandashi. As a substitute you can use 2 cups of water and 1/4 teaspoon of dashi powder.
2) Add the cabbage and simmer until it is almost done and add the tomatoes and simmer about 1-2 minutes longer.
3) Add the miso and put the miso in a ladle and use chop sticks or something to dissolve the miso before adding it directly to the soup.
4) Serve with 1 cabbage wedge per person and a few tomatoes on top.

Cut cabbage into wedges so they don't fall apart. It makes for a nicer presentation.
