Ingredients for Wakame Miso Soup

Makes 4 small servings
1 tablespoon of miso paste
1  tablespoon of dried wakame
1/2 cup of firm fresh tofu, cubed
4 cups of water or instant dashi (Japanese soup stock)

 Instructions for Making Basic Miso Seaweed Soup

  1. In a large bowl, soak dried wakame seaweed in cold water for 10-15 minutes
  2. After soaking period, drain and squeeze wakame to get rid of excess water
  3. Cut wakame into one inch length pieces and set aside
  4. Start boiling 4 cups of water or instant dashi if available
  5. Ladle about one cup of boiled water or dashi stock into bowl containing miso paste
  6. Stir quickly until paste becomes nearly or fully dissolved and less lumpy
  7. Add dissolved paste into the pot
  8. Taste and add more miso paste if desired
  9. Add wakame seaweed and cubed tofu and cook for another minute
When served, miso tends to settle at the bottom of the bowl, this is normal.

Wakame is a type of edible seaweed or sea vegetable that is traditionally used in Japanese and Korean cuisines. The seaweed is leafy and deep green in color, and is usually available in a dried, dehydrated form, although fresh varieties that are preserved in salt are also sold. Its taste is mild and somewhat similar to spinach, and it is often used in soups and salads. Wakame is considered to be a healthy, macrobiotic food due to its low fat and cholesterol content and its high concentrations of vitamins and minerals.
