Miso Soup Style Ozoni

"My family always brings in the new year with ozoni, a Japanese tradition on New Year's Eve. My 5-Ingredient version is versatile, comforting and delicious." - Chef Dorvin Shinjo, Development Chef de Cuisine
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Course Soup
Cuisine Chicken
Servings 3


  • 8 ounces Huli Huli Chicken (Diced)
  • 1 package Miso soup base
  • 4 pieces Mochi block
  • 4 ounces Carrots (Diced)
  • 6 ounces Mizuna (If mizuna is not available, sub with spinach)
  • 2 cups Water


  • Preheat your broiler (or toaster oven to 500 degrees).
  • Place the mochi cakes on a baking sheet and broil at 500 degrees for 2-4 minutes until they puff up and turn slightly brown. Keep an eye on them as they can burn quickly.
    Chef tip: Alternatively, you can grill or pan-fry the mochi until they're puffy and slightly crispy on the outside. I prefer to grill mochi because it adds a smokier flavor!
  • Dice Huli Huli Chicken into large pieces. Save all the liquid in the container and place to the side.
  • Peel and dice your carrots into large pieces.
  • To make soup, follow the directions from the miso packet. Cook carrots in the miso soup until tender.
  • In a serving bowl, place your diced chicken, mizuna, and mochi. Ladel over the hot miso soup with the carrots.
  • Enjoy!
