This miso soup is a close approximation of what you get in most cheap western Japanese restaurants. All ingredients are to taste; the primary thing is the ratio of miso to dashi.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Heat the dashi to a light simmer.
  2. While this is heating, lay out your bowl and place the wakame and tofu in the bottom.
  3. When the dashi simmers, take a ladle or so of liquid aside and mix it with the miso paste.
  4. Remove the pot of dashi from the stove and stir in the miso mixture.
  5. Ladle the prepared soup into the bowl and serve.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Some prefer less miso, some prefer more. The quantity given results in the moderately-salty type popular in restaurants before meals.
  • Do not permit the miso to boil; doing so alters the flavour.
