Vegan Creamy Miso Leek Recipe

Vegan Creamy Miso Leek Recipe

Miso is not just for miso soup or Japanese dishes! With its versatility, miso can elevate your favourite dishes to give a depth of flavour. Not only does it enhance the taste, it adds extra nutrition that offers amazing benefits. A Japanese study has proposed that incorporating fermented soy products like miso into our diet could contribute to improved overall health and increased longevity (1).

Did you know that Leek is also highly beneficial for our health? The superpowers of leeks can be attributed to their organosulfur compounds, which are phytochemicals known to potentially offer immune-boosting benefits. Studies indicate that these compounds contribute to strengthening the immune system and providing defence against inflammation (2).

The heavenly combination of miso and soy milk is one of the most underrated duos in the cooking world. Creamy miso broth perfectly marries into the leek, which makes it easier to eat the whole leek without wasting parts you might normally throw out. It also adds additional colour and flavour to the dish as a whole.



Serves 4 

  • 2 leeks  
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 litre vegetable stock   
  • 1/2 cup soymilk
  • 1 tablespoon of  young white miso
  • Salt and pepper   


  1. Cut the green part off the leek julienne.   
  2. Cut the white part of the leeks in 5 centimetres, then wash well.
  3. Heat olive oil and fry the white leek on both sides until golden then pour the stock and simmer with a lid until tender.   
  4. Dissolve the white miso into the stock then add soymilk and green part of the leek and simmer for few minutes. Season with salt and pepper. This leek sauce can be great for grilled chicken or fish.   

*** Please slowly warm up the soy milk and miso. Don’t boil! Otherwise it will lose its creamy flavour and nutritional benefits!
