Creamy Sesame Miso Soup

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!

    Hi Riyana,

    I’m based in Singapore, which Miso brand would you recommend? And where could I get it from?
