Creamy Miso-Carrot Soup With Garlic-Honey Caramelized Chia-Pecan Crunch, Lime & Wild Garlic Green

APRIL 19, 2021

Hey Soup Lover, This Miso-Carrot Spring Soup Makes Each And Every Rainy Spring Day Shine, I Promise. 

Those of you who live in Germany (or Northern Europe overall), will know exactly what I'm talking about if I say: Sometimes we need a heart-warming soup in Mid-April. We already had a few beautiful days during this Covid-Overshadowed Spring #2 but when I take a glimpse out of my Munich window right now, I can only see a grey sky with occasional rain or snow. But.. believing that the glass is always half-full not half-empty, there's no need to be upset. We can make our days shine with heart-warming food, such as this incredibly creamy Miso-Carrot Soup with Garlic-Honey caramelized Chia-Pecan crunch, lime & seasonal wild garlic green. 

Do you agree? Then, read on and enjoy my absolute favorite heart-warming Miso-Carrot soup. Thanks to the protein-loaded Miso and Tofu insert and the crunchy nut topping that contains more protein and healthy fats, you can enjoy it as a full and balanced meal rather than a starter.  Read on and enjoy!

Miso Miso Miso Seasoning

If you know me, you know I'm the biggest fan of Miso - "Japan's Brown Butter" and a traditional koji mushroom ferment. Miso has a particular rich flavor kind of similar to soy sauce  but, thanks to the creamy texture, I find it much richer. And the coolest part about Miso, it's gut for our gut and overall well-being as high-quality Miso is packed with living organism and is loaded with protein. Plus, by using Miso as a condiment, we naturally reduce the amount of salt we normally use in the cooking process. If you want to learn more about Miso, click here.

I currently mostly use Miso from my very favorite ferment provider Fairment, which sells unpasteurized and therefore "100% living Miso paste" with an incredible flavor profile. For the recipe below I used their Shiro Koshi Miso.

INGREDIENTS PREPARATION
INGREDIENTS :
    • SMOKED CARROTS :
    • -  
      600g Carrots (weight with peel)
    • -  
      1/4 Tsp Smoked Paprica
    • -  
      Sea Salt / Pepper
    • -  
      4 Tbsp Olive Oil
    • CREAMY MISO-CARROT SOUP :
    • -  
      600g Smoked Carrots (see above)
    • -  
      2 medium white onion
    • -  
      2 cloves of garlic (minced)
    • -  
      750ml water
    • -  
      100g organic tofu
    • -  
      Ginger Zest (finely grated ginger)
    • -  
      3 Tbsp organic brown Miso (Shiro Koshi)
    • -  
      Pinch (1/4 Tsp) Turmeric
    • -  
      Sea Salt / Pepper according to taste
    • -  
      Olive Oil to Sautee onions/garlic (soup base)
    • CRUNCHY TOPPING :
    • -  
      Wild Garlic
    • -  
      Sesame
    • -  
      Chia Seeds
    • -  
      Pecan Nuts
    • -  
      Fermented Garlic-Honey (sub with regular honey or maple syrup)
PREPARATION :
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Peel off the non-edible parts of the carrots and cut into chunks (Size doesn't matter as we will puree most of it.; also leave as much of the peel on as you can. The peel is full of nutrients.)
  3. Form a little parcel of aluminium foil and place the carrot chunks inside. Add the seasoning and the olive oil and mix well. Then close the "aluminum foil parcel" and place it onto a baking dish and bake for about 1h in the oven (or until soft).
  4. Meanwhile cut the onions into mini dice and sauté them with olive oil into a large pot. Add the minced garlic as well as the roasted carrots once you have removed them from the oven. (However keep 2 chunks for the soup decoration).
  5. Add water, miso and tofu and cook for a few minutes until everything is heated. Remove the pot from the heat. Use a hand mixer or a smoothie maker to mix everything.
  6. Season with fresh, minced ginger, salt and pepper.
  7. For the crunchy topping, take a frying pan and add 2 Tbsp of chia alongside with a handful of pecan chunks. Add 1 Tbsp of fermented garlic honey and caramelized.
  8. Place the soup into your favorite serving dish and decorate according to taste.
