Onion Potato Miso Soup - Video Recipe

Another video recipe is up!

I asked my darling what kind of miso soup he wants to eat and he said "onion potato", and yes, my mom cooks this miso soup, too! I think these are pretty popular Japanese miso soup ingredients. I added bacon which gives rich and delicious flavor!!! Please try out :D

  1. when i 1st saw the post title, i thought to myself, "oh? onion & potato miso soup?" i was quite surprised @ the combi, but mainly cos i thought there was only 1 type of miso soup~ tofu n seaweed miso soup! hehe i obviously still have alot to learn! ^_<

    i love miso soup & definitely will love to try this version:) (p.s. i like ur pot cover, so cute!!)

  2. there's alot of diff types of pasta here, u'll be able to get cuter shaped 1s n more colourful 1s @ the market, they're home-made:)

    yes, ikan bilis can be eaten as a snack, we usually cook it with chilli. when i was in primary sch, we love to buy them in small packets from the store vendor @ the canteen and munch on them during recess breaks! yumm yumm❤

    liverpool lost *sad* and we felt the referee was kinda against liverpool the whole game. the penalty given to tottenham was so uncalled for, totally destroyed liverpool's chances~~~~~~ both my dear n me were scolding non-stop >_<
