Make a soup that is tastier than any soup has the right to be with this shio koji vegetable soup recipe. Koji, also known as 'rice malt' or 'rice mould', is a unique fungus that grows on rice and is used widely in Japanese cuisine, both to make essential dietary staples like miso and soy sauce and to enhance food flavours. This easy vegetable soup uses shio koji, or salt flavoured koji, for an irresistibly mellow savoury/umami flavour.


30g shio koji
750ml water
2 rashers of bacon
300g vegetables of choice (carrot, onion, cabbage, etc.)

How To Prepare

  1. Cut bacon and vegetables to preferred size.
  2. Add water to a pot and bring to the boil. Add bacon, vegetables and shio koji.
  3. Serve when vegetables are cooked through.
