Miso soup is one of the healthiest dishes and this is the first time I ever made it. I can’t believe how great it came out. My husband loved it too. We both cleaned our dishes.
Here is the very easy recipe:
1 tablespoon dried wakame (I love Eden brand!)
2 scallions, sliced thin
4 ounces of firm tofu, cubed
3 tablespoons white miso
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Soak wakame in cold water for five minutes (it will expand) and then drain.
Boil four cups of water in saucepan.
Add scallions and cook for two minutes
Add tofu and turn off heat.
Take some of the broth aside and mix with miso until smooth, then add to the saucepan, along with the wakame. Stir in sesame oil.
Healthy and delicious!
