Instructions

(Option 1) Prepare Konbu & Shiitake Dashi

  • Allow ingredients to steep for at least 20 minutes.
  • Fish out konbu and mushrooms and your dashi is done!

(Option 2) Prepare Easy Vegetarian Dashi

Making the Miso Soup

  • Bring your vegan dashi to a simmer.
  • Add wakame and tofu and simmer for about 5 minutes to heat tofu through and reconstitute the wakame.
  • Stir in the scallions.
  • Add in miso paste. To avoid chunks of miso in the soup, you can whisk the miso paste into the soup through a fine mesh sieve. Alternatively, you can whisk the miso with a few tablespoons of water first before adding it to the soup.
  • Bring soup back up to a simmer and serve.

Notes

Miso Paste: White (shiro) miso paste is a little milder and sweeter than red (aka) miso paste, which is fermented longer and is saltier and more assertive. I would recommend white miso if you are new to cooking with this ingredient.
