Tofu Miso Soup Recipe

Tofu Miso Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

250g Firm tofu

1 Spring onion

4 cups Water

1/2 cup Dashi granules

100g Miso

1 Mirin

Method:

Use a sharp knife to cut the tofu into 1 cm cubes. Slice the spring onion diagonally into 1 cm lengths. Using a wooden spoon, combine the water and dashi granules in a small pan, then bring the mixture to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium, add the miso and mirin and stir to combine, being careful the mixture does not boil (overheating will result in the loss of miso flavor). Add the tofu cubes to the hot stock and heat, without boiling, over medium heat for 5 minutes, until the tofu is warmed thorough. Serve in individual soup bowls, garnished with the spring onion.
