Directions

  1. Heat water in a large pot over low heat. Add kombu and cook until the mixture just begins to simmer. Stir bonito flakes into kombu mixture until combined. Remove pot from the heat and let dashi sit, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Strain and set aside.
  2. Heat 3 1/2 cups dashi in a pot over medium heat. Add tofu and wakame; stir to combine. Remove 1 cup warmed dashi to a small bowl and whisk in miso paste. Pour miso mixture back into the pot with remaining dashi. Stir until warmed through. Serve garnished with chopped green onions.

Very good. The bonito was a nice change from the normal miso soup I've made. Really gives a good depth of flavor. I added shitake mushrooms too.

Delicious and fairly quick and easy to make. I was getting sick of the packets of powdered "miso" soup, since there are no Japanese restaurants or Asian grocery stores nearby, so I ordered most of the ingredients online (with the exception of the tofu and green onions). I made this recipe immediately after I got all the ingredients together. So much tastier than the instant stuff you can buy. It was well worth having to hunt down the ingredients and wait for them to arrive in the mail just to make this. I could eat miso every day.

Good basic recipe. Had to make it with red miso since that's what I had on hand, next time I will try it with white or yellow.
