  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped in 1 inch segments
  • 3 medium size tomatoes, sliced and pulp discarded
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1 package extra-firm tofu, 16 oz., cubed
  • 8 basil leaves, shredded


  1. Heat oil over medium heat
  2. Saute scallions, tomatoes, and chili flakes with a dash of salt (not too much since miso paste is salty) for 2 to 3 minutes or until scallions are lightly browned.
  3. Add water and bring to a boil.
  4. Add tofu and miso paste.  Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Take off heat and add in basil.  Enjoy!
