"Dashi is the basic stock used in most all Japanese cooking. Dashi stock is the base for miso soup. This recipe is for a Konbudashi, which is made with konbu (dried kelp/seaweed) and bonito flakes (a dried fish which has been shaved into flakes.) There are many variations of dashi, but this is probably the most common." — Kyle Hildebrant

dashi kombu (dried kelp)
What can I use to replace bonita flakes
This is the base for miso soup (among other recipes) and is what makes the soup so good! Thank you for the easy recipe!
Easy to make. I used dried kelp knot instead.
Excellent! Don't be afraid of adding the full amount of bonito flakes. It lends a smokey fish flavor to the stock that makes all the difference. Used this as the base for the Nabeyaki Udon soup that is on this site.
Perfect. I made the best miso soup out of this base.
