Quick & Tasty Bone Broth Mushroom Miso Soup Recipe

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This mushroom miso soup is a simple tasty meal idea that combines the health-boosting benefits of bone broth with gut-boosting miso and the powerful health benefits of mushrooms.

For this recipe you can go with the mini portabello mushrooms as listed (or slice a regular portobello mushroom), or for even more health benefits why not try Shiitake mushrooms.

Shiitake, also known as Black Forest mushroom (scientific name Lentinula edodes) is native to Japan, Korea, and China and is one of the most popular and best studied medicinal mushrooms around today. Both fresh and dried forms of Shiitake are common ingredients in East Asian cooking.

In recent years, this exotic fungus, which grows naturally on dead and dying broad-leaf Asian oaks and beeches, is being carefully studied to understand its many health benefits. Shiitake is known to contain many potent bioactive compounds, including the polysaccharide beta-D-glucan known as “Lentinan.”

Some Considerations About Soy

Miso is a paste traditionally made from fermented soy beans. There is currently much debate about the health safety of consuming products made with soy − particularly as it pertains to breast health.

One common school of thought among many health experts is to avoid genetically modified (GMO) soy and any products containing “soy protein isolate” which has become a pervasive ingredient in processed foods.

On the other hand, naturally fermented soy products such as tempeh, soy sauce, and miso are generally considered safe to consume (and even beneficial) in small quantities. As miso is a fermented product, it also contains bacteria that can contribute to a healthy gut.

According to the USDA, 94% of soybeans grown in the U.S. are genetically modified. For the recipe below, look for a high quality organic miso paste. Otherwise it will more than likely be produced from genetically-modified soy.

Note that the “mello white miso” called for in the recipe is a lighter kind of miso that is fermented for a shorter time and contains less salt than traditional miso. It also has a more delicate taste than traditional miso.

    • Hi Cindy ! At the top of the page click on ‘ recipes’ you will find Bone Broth Mushroom Miso Soup recipe on page 16 ! Enjoy

  1. Instructions say to bring broth to a simmer. “In a medium pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a rolling simmer. ”
    “Reduce heat to medium-low and remove 1 1⁄2 cups of broth. Whisk broth into miso and add back to soup.
    Remove from heat and add protein powder. ”
    If using the bone broth protein powder to make the broth, is it mixed with the water and simmered as in the initial instruction, or do we begin with water, mix with miso and then add the bone broth powder at the end?

    • Hello Audrey. We recommend following the instruction and adding the bone broth powder at the end, after the heat is removed. Let us know how your bone broth turned out!

        • Hi Juanita, thank you for your feedback.

          We apologize if you found the instructions to be unclear. We recommend following the instruction listed and adding the Bone Broth Protein Powder at the end, after the heat is removed.

          Hope this helps. Let us know if you decide to recreate it. We’d love to know how it turns out for you. Thank you for being here with us. Hope you have a lovely day!

          • It very clearly says: “In a medium pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a rolling simmer” after: “OR 3 scoops of plain bone broth protein powder mixed in 36 ounces water “.

            How you can say that is not unclear is beyond me! If you add the bone broth protein powder at the end, then it must have been mixed into 36 ounces of water, so then WHAT was being brought to a simmer???!

            And, since it says “bring BROTH to a rolling simmer” it does not sound like one is boiling plain water!

          • Hi Juanita, we’re sorry the recipe sounds unclear.

            The ingredients state to add either “4 cups chicken bone broth” OR “3 scoops of plain bone broth protein powder mixed in 36 ounces water.”

            If you decide to go with the bone broth powder, you would just mix in the bone broth and use it as a soup base which is one of its recommended uses. When you make rice or quinoa with it, for example, the broth is also boiled.

            Hope this helps. We appreciate your feedback. Wishing you a lovely day!

      • Ooh, ooh, I came up with another question! Now that I’m trying to make it. How to remove 1 1/2 cups of broth when there’s all those vegetables in it???! Now that I’m at it, the miso is supposed to be a paste, yes? Have to look harder, all I could find was a powder.

        • Hi again, Juanita. It’s nice to hear back from you!

          Yes, both the mellow white and garbanzo miso mentioned in the recipe is in the form of a paste. However, you may use miso powder instead, while keeping in mind that the final dish might have a difference in taste or texture compared to the original recipe.

          In order to remove the broth, you may pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or colander into a large heat-proof bowl or pot to discard the solids. You may also use a ladle and manually scoop the broth.

          We hope this helped and we look forward to hearing how you enjoyed your very own soup. Have fun cooking and have a great day!

          • So, even though I ended up using powder, like for making a cup of soup (with tofu cubes in it!), and it likely was not enough, I found the soup DELICIOUS!!

            Hopefully, I will find the paste and do it again–can hardly wait to see how good it can be done right!

            BTW, how do you get it to be such a dark, rich, brown?

          • That’s awesome, Juanita! It’s nice to know that your own version of this soup turned out delicious.

            Regarding your question, there are different kinds of miso that vary in color (white, yellow, red, black) that will also result to varying hues of the soup. We suggest that you research more about them and experiment on which variety of miso you prefer the best.

            Have fun cooking and have a great weekend ahead!
