Miso Soup with Parmigiano Reggiano

This miso soup is characterized by its strong miso taste combined with Parmigiano cheese. Daikon radish and poached egg go surprisingly well together, making this a versatile soup that can be paired with both Western and Japanese dishes.
Additional parmigiano can be sprinkled just before eating for an even richer taste.

If you add a lot of parmigiano, reduce the amount of miso to balance the salt content.
