Creamy Sesame Miso Soup
THIS RECIPE SPELLS COMFORT FOOD!
Far from traditional but this soup is dreamy, creamy, and just so comforting!
It's been raining non-stop here in Singapore and with this weather, soup has been constantly on my mind!
I had miso paste in the fridge but didn't want the classic miso soup, I wanted to make something a bit more heavy and filling!
Coconut milk came to mind (those who know me know I am coconut obsessed), then I thought about peanut butter and then it hit me! TAHINI!
Miso + Tahini = MAGIC!
I finished it all off by making it a little garlicy and spicy by adding a good dollop of Ri's garlic chili sauce.
The result? Heaven!
Perfect when you are craving something soupy, savory, and satiating!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!
