Miso Soup

Miso Soup

 I love miso soup a lot! It's super simple and easy to make.   

  • 1/2 cup dried wakame (seaweed)
  • 1/4 cup shiro miso (white miso)
  • 6 cups Dashi
  • 1/2 pound soft tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallion greens

Prepare wakame:

Combine wakame with warm water to cover by 1 inch and let stand 15 minutes, or until reconstituted. Drain in a sieve.  

Make soup: Stir together miso and 1/2 cup dashi in a bowl until smooth. Heat remaining dashi in a saucepan over moderately high heat until hot, then gently stir in tofu and reconstituted wakame. Simmer 1 minute and remove from heat. Immediately stir in miso mixture and scallion greens and serve.
