Cook Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
- 5 cups water
- 2 1/2 tsp hon-dashi - instant dashi powder
- 5 Tbsp shiro miso - you can use Aka (red) miso if you want a stronger taste.
- 2 oz extra firm tofu - diced
- pinch dried wakame
- green onion - sliced, for garnish
If you are adding wakame, bring a small amount of water to boil. Add a pinch of dried wakame. You won't believe how much it expands. It's crazy. Strain it, slice it up and set it aside. Discard the water.
Add the hon-dashi to 5 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Let boil for a minute or two.
Remove the pot from the heat. Put the miso in a small mesh strainer. Now lower it into the broth but keep the top above the surface. Use some chopsticks to stir the miso, pushing it through the strainer. No lumps!
Add the diced tofu and reconstituted wakame if using.
Garnish with sliced green onion. Serve. Enjoy.
